Morning Psalm and Prayer - January 15, 2020



A Prayer of Morning Resolve

I will try this day to live a simple, sincere and serene life, repelling promptly every thought of discontent, anxiety, discouragement, impurity, and self-seeking; cultivating cheerfulness, magnanimity, charity, and the habit of holy silence; exercising economy in expenditure, generosity in giving, carefulness in conversation, diligence in appointed service, fidelity to every trust, and a childlike faith in God.

In particular I will try to be faithful in those habits of prayer, work, study, physical exercise, eating, and sleep which I believe the Holy Spirit has shown me to be right.

And as I cannot in my own strength do this, nor even with a hope of success attempt it, I look to thee, O Lord God my Father, in Jesus my Savior, and ask for the gift of the Holy Spirit. Amen.



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.
