Psalm 16 Prayer Pattern to Gain an Accurate Perspective of God

DDCommunity: Psalm 16 Prayer Pattern to Gain an Accurate Perspective of God

Gain an Accurate Pespective of God

Psalm 16 provides a Prayer Pattern to gain an accurate perspective of God. My distorted portrait of God radically impacts my life, but an accurate perspective of God fills me with love, joy, and peace. Use Psalms Prayer Patterns to pour out your heart to God while acknowledging your weakness and His strength, as you grow deeper in your relationship with Him.

Psalm 16 Prayer Pattern

Keep me safe, O God,
      for I have come to you for refuge.

I said to the LORD, “You are my Master!
      Every good thing I have comes from you.”
The godly people in the land
      are my true heroes!
      I take pleasure in them!
Troubles multiply for those who chase after other gods.
      I will not take part in their sacrifices of blood
      or even speak the names of their gods.

LORD, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing.
      You guard all that is mine.
The land you have given me is a pleasant land.
      What a wonderful inheritance!

I will bless the LORD who guides me;
      even at night my heart instructs me.
I know the LORD is always with me.
      I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.

No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice.
      My body rests in safety.
For you will not leave my soul among the dead
      or allow your holy one to rot in the grave.
You will show me the way of life,
      granting me the joy of your presence
      and the pleasures of living with you forever.      

—Psalm 16 NLT
