A Prayer For The Morning

God loves it when we pray His Words back to Him. Let’s start with these words from King David, about which C. S. Lewis said: “I take this to be the greatest poem in the Psalter and one of the greatest lyrics in the world.”

“The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul;
the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple;
the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes;
the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever;
the rules of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold;
sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb.
Moreover, by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.

Who can discern his errors?
Declare me innocent from hidden faults.
Keep back your servant from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me!
Then I shall be blameless, and innocent of great transgression.

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight,
O Lord, my rock and my redeemer
.” Psalm 19:7-14 ESV

Selah
