Praying the Psalms - Psalm 119: 1-8-

 12.6.11



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

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
