Thank-you for Your Word, which brings us understanding. May it be our meditation all the day, in every season of our lives. How sweet are Your Words to our taste, sweeter than honey to our mouths. Truly Your Word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. Revive us, O Lord, according to Your Word. Our lives are continually in Your hand. Your testimonies we have taken as a heritage forever. By the power of the Holy Spirit, help us to keep Your precepts which restrains our feet from every evil way. May we not depart from Your judgments which You have taught us. Keep us from straying from Your precepts. And may we incline our hearts to perform Your statutes forever, to the very end.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Psalm 119:97-112 NKJV
“Oh, how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day.
You, through Your commandments, make me wiser than my enemies; For they are ever with me.
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.”
