Praying the Psalms

A few weeks ago, I directed the fellowship that is meeting at our house on Sundays to pray a few verses in the book of Psalms. If you have an authorized 1611 Bible (some others have copied it from there, as well)  you will notice that Psalm 119 is broken down into sections under the Hebrew alphabet. (Just a little history lesson here. Our word “Alphabet” is derived from the first two letters of the Hebrew language: Aleph and Bet)

I’d like to encourage you to do that today with these verses which fall under HE (pronounced “Hey”)…Psalms 119:33-40, HE. Teach me, O LORD, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end. Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart. Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight. Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness. Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in thy way.  Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who is devoted to thy fear. Turn away my reproach which I fear: for thy judgments are good. Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy righteousness.

It is not within us to be able to obey God. Notice the Psalmist asks God to TEACH, GIVE understanding, MAKE to go in the path, INCLINE my heart, TURN away my eyes, QUICKEN in Thy way, STABLISH Thy Word, TURN away my reproach, QUICKEN in Thy (not MY) righteousness.

Make it personal and cry this out to God today.

Lord bless you today.
