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.
Psalm 119:113-128 NKJV
“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.”
