    Psalm 36:1 prayer section of comment was corrected and resubmitted to read: "...our tresspasses... " Thank you for sharing.
  • "Except but for the grace of GOD, there go I. " This is a saying understood by those who know the grace of GOD as the fullness of His mercy by HIS SPIRIT and TRUTH ! Psalm 36:1 speaks to the fact that those who reject HIM reject HIS commands to be holy as HE is HOLY ! That is how many "also ran 'christians ' " find themselves using GOD 'S WORD to justify their alleged upholding "justice " where they are really approving of abominable behaviors, i.e. transgressions of the whole law of GOD - by approving only what they agree to as they issue forth judgment "when. " Prayer: FATHER GOD, may we love YOU and be obedient to you in our thoughts and deeds in the spirit of I John 3:4 and 9. May we be so renewed in our hearts daily to have "a heart after " YOUR "own heart. " May we be bold to endure and overcome to be caught up with CHRIST, and brought into YOUR presence in the new heaven and new earth where YOU and YOUR TEMPLE will eternally be in our midst ! Please forgive the transgressors,and out trespasses FATHER GOD as YOU draw the unsaved and keep the saved. May we each through YOU find that YOUR WORD is good and pleasing to the senses. Thank YOU for helping me to utter this prayer through the power of YOUR dispensed HOLY GHOST as received into my temple - my whole heart, body, mind , soul and spirit. All praise, glory, honor, strength, riches and power ... unto you. Amen.
