Psalm for Prayer - February 18, 2019

Psalm 37:1–11 (ESV)

1 Fret not yourself because of evildoers; be not envious of wrongdoers! 

2 For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb. 

3 Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. 

4 Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. 

5 Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act. 

6 He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday. 

7 Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices! 

8 Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath! Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil. 

9 For the evildoers shall be cut off, but those who wait for the Lord shall inherit the land. 

10 In just a little while, the wicked will be no more; though you look carefully at his place, he will not be there. 

11 But the meek shall inherit the land and delight themselves in abundant peace.
