Holiday Heart-cry

O Dear LORD, hear my desire for my
  • understanding to be according to Your Word.
  • requests to appear before you.
  • deliverance to be according to Your promise.
  • lips to overflow with praise to You.
  • education to be on Your decrees.
  • tongue to sing of Your Word.
  • help to come quickly from Your hand.
  • heart to delight in Your Law.
  • life to praise You.
  • sustenance to be Your laws.
I have wandered away like a helpless lamb, please find me since I am remembering Your directions.

Psalm 119:169-176
May my cry come before you, O LORD;
give me understanding according to your word.
May my supplication come before you;
deliver me according to your promise.
May my lips overflow with praise,
for you teach me your decrees.
May my tongue sing of your word,
for all your commands are righteous.
May your hand be ready to help me,
for I have chosen your precepts.
I long for your salvation, O LORD,
and your law is my delight.
Let me live that I may praise you,
and may your laws sustain me.
I have strayed like a lost sheep.
Seek your servant,
for I have not forgotten your commands.
