Scripture Reading: The Law of the Lord Is Perfect
14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.
Many preachers utter this prayer prior to delivering the weekly message. It is a prayer that serves as a gentle reminder to any pastor of the task that is before us, we who are called to be agents of God as preachers of God’s Word. Stop and think for a moment. What if we went beyond just the words of the preacher and asking for them to be acceptable to God as they are preached and spoken on a Sunday morning. What if it truly applied to all of us that the words of our mouth and the meditations of all of our hearts be acceptable to our God who is a rock or strength or redeemer?
