Psalm 119:133 and Prayer for Yourself

Posted by Matt Postiff October 3, 2012 on Matt Postiff's Blog under Bible Texts 

My verse for the day turned out to be Psalm 119:133:

Direct my steps by Your word, And let no iniquity have dominion over me. (Psalm 119:133 NKJ)

I was thinking about this recently in light of the idea of how we should pray for ourselves. The Psalms are filled with prayers to God from the author about the author. We too can legitimately pray these sorts of things for ourselves. Prayer for self is not necessarily selfish, although we can easily fall into that trap (James 4:3; consider the prayer of Jabez in 1 Chronicles 4:10).
