Good morning brothers and sisters. Today's Psalm needs to be my daily prayer. I need to learn this one in a mighty big way, especially verses 3 and 4. My mouth gets me into trouble a lot. I can be brutally honest and don't always do it with love. It is wonderful to be honest but I have to learn how to say it and say it with love.
1- Lord, I cry out to You, make hast to me! Give ear to my voice when I cry out to You.
2- Let my prayer be set before You as incense. The lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.
3- Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth. Keep watch over the door of my lips.
4- Do not incline my heart to any evil thing, to practice wicked works with men who work iniquity. And do not let me eat of their delicacies.
5- Let the righteous strike me. It shall be a kindness and let him rebuke me. It shall be as excellent oil. Let my head not refuse it. For still my prayer is against the deeds of the wicked.
6- Their judges are overthrown by the sides of the cliff and they hear my words for they are sweet.
7- Our bones are scattered at the mouth of the grave as when one plows and breaks up the earth.
8- But my eyes are upon You, O God the Lord. In You I take refuge. Do not leave my soul destitute.
9- Keep me from the snares they have laid for me and from the traps of the workers of iniquity.
10- Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I escape safely.
Have a blessed day and rise up child of God, rise up!
