Praying the Psalms – Psalm 119: 1-8-

 

Psalm 119

Aleph

1 Blessed are those whose way is blameless,
who walk in the law of the LORD!
2 Blessed are those who keep his testimonies,
who seek him with their whole heart,
3 who also do no wrong,
but walk in his ways!

Lord, it amazes me how you have blessed my life.
How you have called me blessed when I deserved nothing but death.
You have blessed me by setting my feet to walk on the narrow way.
By forgiving all my sins.
It is a miracle.
It is the greatest blessing any woman could have.
I hated your ways, even today, my ways are not blameless;
yet you give me your Word to guide my steps,
to cleanse me.

Lord, help me walk in your ways,
blameless…
yes, blameless.
That is my heart’s desire.
Help me, Lord,  to keep your testimonies,
in a world that is twisted and calls my name.
Lord, that I may seek you with my whole heart.
Every day, every minute, wholeheartedly.
Deliver me from all unbelief,
from my own heart.

 

4 You have commanded your precepts
to be kept diligently.
5 Oh that my ways may be steadfast
in keeping your statutes!

Father, I thank you, that through the power of the Holy Spirit in me
I can walk diligently in your ways.
Thank you that through the atonement of Jesus,
I have been delivered from the bondage of sin,
and can walk freely, keeping your statutes!

 

6 Then I shall not be put to shame,
having my eyes fixed on all your commandments.
7 I will praise you with an upright heart,
when I learn your righteous rules.
8 I will keep your statutes;
do not utterly forsake me!

Father, hear my prayer today,
when the evildoers come against me,
when temptation finds me,
help me that I may not be put to shame,
but that I may stand firm;
fixed my eyes on all your commandments;
praising you with an upright heart.

Lord, help me to study your Word,
to abide in it.
To learn your righteouss rules,
and love and keep your statutes.

Father, hear me!
Do not utterly forsake me!
Be with me as I grow in grace
in a world that hates You.

This I pray,
in the name of my Mediator,
Jesus Christ,

Amen

Becky

  1. >I'm a little fuzzy on the prayer and situation that led up to it (funny because it was only a week ago) but I was recently "called" to do an in-depth reading of Psalms 119. If I recall correctly, I was praying for help in shaping myself and where to start.I enjoyed reading your prayer. 🙂
