Morning Psalm and Prayer - July 8, 2020



A Prayer for Today, from St. Augustine’s Prayer Book

Holy God, your knowledge of me exceeds what I grasp or see in any moment; you know me better than I know myself. Now, help me to trust in your mercy, to see myself in the light of your holiness, and grant me the grace that I may have true contrition, make an honest confession, and find in you forgiveness and perfect remission. 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.
