Psalm 26:8 (ESV) — 8 O Lord, I love the habitation of your house and the place where your glory dwells.
Pray with me today won’t you:
Heavenly Father, may I love the habitation of your house – the place where your glory dwells – the people that are your Church.
May I love them Father.
May I see them as the place where your glory dwells.
May I see in them always the riches of your grace poured out on their brokenness.
May I not disdain a single one of them, but see them always as the objects of your love, and redeemed by the blood of the Lamb.
May I know of a certainty that you indwell them and that you manifest your glory there.
May I never forsake them – but seek them out to be with them wherever they may be found.
May I find ever more ways to bless them.
May I rejoice with them, weep with them, and praise your name together with them.
May my I encourage them when they are distressed,
Uphold their hands when they are weary,
Strengthen their feeble knees when prayer escapes them,
And point them ever and always to the grace of Christ, the power of your indwelling Spirit, the counsel of your Word and the sure promises of the resurrection.
Oh Lord, I love the temple where you live, the place where your splendor is revealed.
Help me to love it even more.
