Dear Father,

I will lift my eyes unto You, for my help come from You and You alone. Thank-you that You will not allow my feet to be moved. You never sleep and I am always on Your mind. You are my keeper, my protection, and my supplier. I am kept from evil by the power of Your Holy Spirit. By His power, may I always remember that it is You who preserves my going out and my coming in.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

 

Psalm 121:1-8  NKJV   

“I will lift up my eyes to the hills— From whence comes my help?
My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is your keeper; The Lord is your shade at your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul.
The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in From this time forth, and even forevermore.”

Many are my persecutors and my enemies, Yet I do not turn from Your testimonies.
I see the treacherous, and am disgusted, Because they do not keep Your word.
Consider how I love Your precepts; Revive me, O Lord, according to Your lovingkindness.
The entirety of Your word is truth, And every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever.

“Your testimonies are wonderful; Therefore my soul keeps them.
The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple.
I opened my mouth and panted, For I longed for Your commandments.
Look upon me and be merciful to me, As Your custom is toward those who love Your name.
Direct my steps by Your word, And let no iniquity have dominion over me.
Redeem me from the oppression of man, That I may keep Your precepts.
Make Your face shine upon Your servant, And teach me Your statutes.
Rivers of water run down from my eyes, Because men do not keep Your law.
Righteous are You, O Lord, And upright are Your judgments.
Your testimonies, which You have commanded, Are righteous and very faithful.
My zeal has consumed me, Because my enemies have forgotten Your words.
Your word is very pure; Therefore Your servant loves it.
I am small and despised, Yet I do not forget Your precepts.
Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, And Your law is truth.
Trouble and anguish have overtaken me, Yet Your commandments are my delights.
The righteousness of Your testimonies is everlasting; Give me understanding, and I shall live.
I cry out with my whole heart; Hear me, O Lord! I will keep Your statutes.
I cry out to You; Save me, and I will keep Your testimonies.
I rise before the dawning of the morning, And cry for help; I hope in Your word.
My eyes are awake through the night watches, That I may meditate on Your word.
Hear my voice according to Your lovingkindness; O Lord, revive me according to Your justice.
They draw near who follow after wickedness; They are far from Your law.
You are near, O Lord, And all Your commandments are truth.
Concerning Your testimonies, I have known of old that You have founded them forever.”

Teach me good judgment and knowledge, For I believe Your commandments.
Before I was afflicted I went astray, But now I keep Your word.
You are good, and do good; Teach me Your statutes.
The proud have forged a lie against me, But I will keep Your precepts with my whole heart.
Their heart is as fat as grease, But I delight in Your law.
It is good for me that I have been afflicted, That I may learn Your statutes.
The law of Your mouth is better to me Than thousands of coins of gold and silver.
Your hands have made me and fashioned me; Give me understanding, that I may learn Your commandments.
Those who fear You will be glad when they see me, Because I have hoped in Your word.
I know, O Lord, that Your judgments are right, And that in faithfulness You have afflicted me.
Let, I pray, Your merciful kindness be for my comfort, According to Your word to Your servant.
Let Your tender mercies come to me, that I may live; For Your law is my delight.
Let the proud be ashamed, For they treated me wrongfully with falsehood; But I will meditate on Your precepts.
Let those who fear You turn to me, Those who know Your testimonies.
Let my heart be blameless regarding Your statutes, That I may not be ashamed.”

Dear Father,

You are my hiding place and my shield. I place all my hope in Your Word, which is worth more than gold. Thank-you for upholding me in a safe place according to Your Word. You , O Lord, are just and righteous. You will never leave me alone or at the mercy of my enemy. You are merciful and full of understanding. Thank-you for teaching me the path I should follow. By the power of the Holy Spirit, help me when I am tempted to do evil, to obey Your commandments. May I not stray from Your statutes.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

“I hate the double-minded, But I love Your law.
You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in Your word.
Depart from me, you evildoers, For I will keep the commandments of my God!
Uphold me according to Your word, that I may live; And do not let me be ashamed of my hope.
Hold me up, and I shall be safe, And I shall observe Your statutes continually.
You reject all those who stray from Your statutes, For their deceit is falsehood.
You put away all the wicked of the earth like dross; Therefore I love Your testimonies.
My flesh trembles for fear of You, And I am afraid of Your judgments.
I have done justice and righteousness; Do not leave me to my oppressors.
Be surety for Your servant for good; Do not let the proud oppress me.
My eyes fail from seeking Your salvation And Your righteous word.
Deal with Your servant according to Your mercy, And teach me Your statutes.
I am Your servant; Give me understanding, That I may know Your testimonies.
It is time for You to act, O Lord, For they have regarded Your law as void.
Therefore I love Your commandments More than gold, yes, than fine gold!
Therefore all Your precepts concerning all things I consider to be right; I hate every false way.”

I have more understanding than all my teachers, For Your testimonies are my meditation.
I understand more than the ancients, Because I keep Your precepts.
I have restrained my feet from every evil way, That I may keep Your word.
I have not departed from Your judgments, For You Yourself have taught me.
How sweet are Your words to my taste, Sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Through Your precepts I get understanding; Therefore I hate every false way.
Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.
I have sworn and confirmed That I will keep Your righteous judgments.
I am afflicted very much; Revive me, O Lord, according to Your word.
Accept, I pray, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O Lord, And teach me Your judgments.
My life is continually in my hand, Yet I do not forget Your law.
The wicked have laid a snare for me, Yet I have not strayed from Your precepts.
Your testimonies I have taken as a heritage forever, For they are the rejoicing of my heart.
I have inclined my heart to perform Your statutes Forever, to the very end.”

Dear Father,

Thank-you for salvation and the hope that I have in Your Word. Your Word brings comfort and strength. You revive me with lovingkindness that I may keep the testimony of Your mouth. Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven. Your faithfulness endures to all generations. You established the earth, and it abides. By the power of the Holy Spirit, may I never forget Your precepts, for by them You have given me life.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

 

Psalm 119:81-96  NKJV   

  “My soul faints for Your salvation, But I hope in Your word.
My eyes fail from searching Your word, Saying, “When will You comfort me?”
For I have become like a wineskin in smoke, Yet I do not forget Your statutes.
How many are the days of Your servant? When will You execute judgment on those who persecute me?
The proud have dug pits for me, Which is not according to Your law.
All Your commandments are faithful; They persecute me wrongfully; Help me!
They almost made an end of me on earth, But I did not forsake Your precepts.
Revive me according to Your lovingkindness, So that I may keep the testimony of Your mouth.
Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven.
Your faithfulness endures to all generations; You established the earth, and it abides.
They continue this day according to Your ordinances, For all are Your servants.
Unless Your law had been my delight, I would then have perished in my affliction.
I will never forget Your precepts, For by them You have given me life.
I am Yours, save me; For I have sought Your precepts.
The wicked wait for me to destroy me, But I will consider Your testimonies.
I have seen the consummation of all perfection, But Your commandment is exceedingly broad.”
