Prayer for Wednesday, from the New Zealand Prayer Book

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself,
and God our Father,
who loved us and graciously gave us
unfailing encouragement and good hope,
comfort our hearts
and establish them
in every good word and deed.

Psalm 119

17   Deal bountifully with your servant, *
that I may live and keep your word.
18   Open my eyes, that I may see *
the wonders of your law.
19   I am a stranger here on earth; *
do not hide your commandments from me.
20   My soul is consumed at all times *
with longing for your judgments.
21   You have rebuked the insolent; *
cursed are they who stray from your commandments!
22   Turn from me shame and rebuke, *
for I have kept your decrees.
23   Even though rulers sit and plot against me, *
I will meditate on your statutes.
24   For your decrees are my delight, *
and they are my counselors.
