Cry Out and Meditate

I cried out with all my heart, “Answer me, O Lord!
I will observe Your statutes.”
I cried out to You, “Deliver me,
so that I can keep Your rules.”
I am up before dawn crying for help.
I find hope in Your word.

Psalm 119:145-147 NET

Dear Heavenly Father – please hear me.  I need Your help to follow Your rules.  I call for help early in the day.  I find hope in Your word.

My eyes anticipate the nighttime hours,
so that I can meditate on Your word.
Listen to me because of Your loyal love!
O Lord, revive me, as You typically do!
Those who are eager to do wrong draw near;
they are far from Your law.
You are near, O Lord,
and all Your commands are reliable.
I learned long ago that
You ordained Your rules to last. 

Psalm 119:148-152 NET

I look forward to the time that I can meditate on Your word.  I need to talk to You and be strengthened by You. Those who cling to wrong are close by.  They do not want to follow Your law.  Thank you that You and Your rules are reliable and meant to last.

I pray this in Jesus’ name.

God is so good.
