My Source of Security and Friendship

The Lord is my source of security.
I have determined to follow your instructions.
I seek your favor with all my heart.
Have mercy on me as you promised!
I consider my actions
and follow your rules.
I keep your commands
eagerly and without delay. 

Psalm 119:57-60

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for providing safety and security through Your law.  I desire Your good opinion.  Please help me.  I watch what I do and seek to obey Your rules with joy.

The ropes of the wicked tighten around me,
but I do not forget your law.
In the middle of the night I arise to thank you
for your just regulations.
I am a friend to all your loyal followers,
and to those who keep your precepts.
O Lord, your loyal love fills the earth.
Teach me your statutes!

Psalm 119:61-64

Too many people want me to walk away from Your law, but I will not.  I thank You for the justice of Your ways.  Those who follow Your law are my best friends.  Thank You, Heavenly Father, for Your loyal love.  Please continue to teach me more.

I pray this in Jesus’ Name.

God is so good.

Timeless Songs

Remember Your word to your servant,
for You have given me hope.
This is what comforts me in my trouble,
for Your promise revives me.
Arrogant people do nothing but scoff at me.
Yet I do not turn aside from Your law.
I remember your ancient regulations,
O Lord, and console myself.
Rage takes hold of me because of the wicked,
those who reject Your law.

Psalm 119:49-53

Dear Heavenly Father, I need the hope from Your word; it provides comfort.  Not everyone believes or follows Your law.  Please help me to show them how timeless Your laws are.    

Your statutes have been my songs
in the house where I live.
I remember your name during the night, O Lord,
and I will keep Your law.
This has been my practice,
for I observe Your precepts. 

Psalm 119:54-56

Your law is like music.  It brings joy and comfort.  I think of You and will keep Your law. 

I pray this in Jesus’ name.

God is so good.

Loved Secure

May I experience Your loyal love, O Lord,
and your deliverance, as You promised.
Then I will have a reply for the one who insults me,
for I trust in your word.
Do not completely deprive me of a truthful testimony,
for I await your justice.
Then I will keep your law continually
now and for all time.

Psalm 119:41-44

Dear Heavenly Father, please deliver me by Your loyal love.  Then I can show the results of trusting in Your word to those who throw insults.  I need Your help to show the truth of Your word.  This will help me keep it.

I will be secure,
for I seek Your precepts.
I will speak about Your regulations before kings
and not be ashamed.
I will find delight in Your commands,
which I love.
I will lift my hands to Your commands,
which I love,
and I will meditate on Your statutes.

Psalm 119:45-48

Thank you for the security Your way brings.  This will give me boldness to speak to anyone about Who You are.  Your commands bring delight.  I love Your law.  It gives me motivation to obey.  I love Your law; I will think about it often.

I pray this in Jesus name.

God is so good.

Hold Tight

Teach me, O Lord, the lifestyle prescribed by Your statutes,
so that I might observe it continually.
Give me understanding so that I might observe Your law,
and keep it with all my heart.
Guide me in the path of Your commands,
for I delight to walk in it.
Give me a desire for Your rules,
rather than for wealth gained unjustly.
Turn my eyes away from what is worthless!
Revive me with Your word!

Psalm 119:33-37

Dear Heavenly Father, please teach me how I should live.  Correct my flawed vision, so I will know what to give my heart to.  Your law brings great joy.  Please remind me that Your way is worth more than gaining wealth the wrong way.

Confirm to your servant Your promise,
which You made to the one who honors You.
Take away the insults that I dread!
Indeed, your regulations are good.
Look, I long for Your precepts.
Revive me with Your deliverance!

Psalm 119:38-40

Show me how Your promise is fulfilled for the one who honors You.  Help me through insults; I long for the goodness of Your way.  Please give me life through Your law.

I pray this in Jesus’ name.

God is so good.
