A Prayer For Understanding and Strength

Psalm 119:33-40
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,
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: f
or thy judgments are good.
Behold,
I have longed after thy precepts:
quicken me in thy righteousness.

A most excellent prayer.

A good prayer to pray at Presbytery, no doubt. We are praying for you at your examination.

That just happens to be mine and Jennifer's wedding text so I may be partial, but it is a wonderful prayer.

I pray that things may have gone well for you Nate, either today or tomorrow. We hope to see you back in GR soon.

btw, you just happened to skip out of OT Exegesis again on the day that you had to do the exegesis... how do you manage to schedule that so well? ;)
