It has been a while since I have posted a devotional prayer that begins with the declarative statement “God, You are…” . Here is one entitled “Lovely”. If your heart connects to our God through this prayer, more like this one can be found in both The Heartbeat of God and The Heritage of God on my website. Pray with me…

God, You are Lovely. One thing I have asked from the Lord, that shall I seek; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and meditate in His temple. Indeed, how lovely are Your dwelling places, O Lord of hosts! My soul longs and even yearns for the courts of the Lord. And as I come into Your holy presence, O God, the eyes of my heart are enthralled by Your matchless mercy. For in this place of worship, lovingkindness and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. To think, You have allowed my soul to be sweetly intertwined between this embrace; yes, I have been wrapped with Your love, truth, righteousness, and peace. So I will stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of my God! And I will praise the Lord, for the Lord is good; I will sing praises to His name, for it is lovely. For You are the portion of my inheritance and my cup…the lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; indeed, my heritage is beautiful to me. Thank You, O God. I will drink from Your cup with gratitude, and I will enjoy my inheritance forever. Indeed, how lovely You are to me.
