My Prayer for Today

My Prayer for Today
   1      Blessed are the un-defiled in the way, Who walk in the law of the LORD!      2      Blessed are those who keep His testimonies,            Who seek Him with the whole heart!      3      They also do no iniquity;            They walk in His ways.      4      You have commanded us            To keep Your precepts diligently.      5      Oh, that my ways were directed            To keep Your statutes!      6      Then I would not be ashamed,            When I look into all Your commandments.      7      I will praise You with uprightness of heart,            When I learn Your righteous judgments.      8      I will keep Your statutes;            Oh, do not forsake me utterly! 

The New King James Version (Nashville: Thomas Nelson, 1982). Ps 119:1–8.

Here you can have intimate communion with Christ and feast on his love; here are tables well-stored with food for you to live on for ever; in it, when weary, you can find rest with Jesus; and from it you can look out and see heaven itself.
