40 Days of Prayer: Day 22

The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God," they are corrupt, and have committed abominable injustice; there is no one who does good. God has looked down from heaven upon the sons of men to see if there is anyone who understands, who seeks after God. Every one of them has turned aside; together they have become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one. Have the workers of wickedness no knowledge, who eat up My people as though they ate bread and have not called upon God? There they were in great fear where no fear had been; for God scattered the bones of him who encamped against you; You put them to shame, because God had rejected them. Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion! When God restores His captive people, let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad. Psalm 53

Dear God,
As I meditate on this Psalm, it seems as if it could be written today. Sometimes it seems like there is no one who does good, that I am surrounded by people who act, think and behave as if there is no God. They have turned aside from You and become corrupt, and their corruptness is spreading quickly. Lord, how I thank You that Your salvation HAS come out of Israel, that You have sent a Redeemer. Let me be glad in You today and let Your gladness flow through me that I might be a light to those who say there is no God. Let them see You in me. I pray that Your Holy Spirit would speak to their hearts and turn them to You.

For Your glory,
