Hear my prayer, O Lord;
give ear to my pleas for mercy!
In your faithfulness answer me, in your righteousness!
2 Enter not into judgment with your servant,
for no one living is righteous before you.
3 For the enemy has pursued my soul;
he has crushed my life to the ground;
he has made me sit in darkness like those long dead.
4 Therefore my spirit faints within me;
my heart within me is appalled.
5 I remember the days of old;
I meditate on all that you have done;
I ponder the work of your hands.
6 I stretch out my hands to you;
my soul thirsts for you like a parched land. Selah
7 Answer me quickly, O Lord!
My spirit fails!
Hide not your face from me,
lest I be like those who go down to the pit.
8 Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love,
for in you I trust.
Make me know the way I should go,
for to you I lift up my soul.
9 Deliver me from my enemies, O Lord!
I have fled to you I have covered
10 Teach me to do your will,
for you are my God!
Let your good Spirit lead me
on level ground!
11 For your name's sake, O Lord, preserve my life!
In your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble!
12 And in your steadfast love you will cut off my enemies,
and you will destroy all the adversaries of my soul,
for I am your servant.
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
My faults this week - I have blogged late at night and not proof read because the day had other activities - I must proof-read the next day because in a tired mind, the jottings make complete sense. This week I've blogged with half a mind to use one of the 2,000 old posts. Please forgive me.
2 Chronicles 30:20
And the LORD heard Hezekiah and healed the people.
With a new plan, this should look more cohesive.
1 Timothy 1:5
The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.

1 John 2:1
My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.
Let our prayers be plentiful like rain and our requests descend like dew,
like showers on new grass,
like abundant rain on tender plants - Renewal for this blogging editing.
Give us clear understanding each day,
and my inmost being will dwell with You.
We praise You God, for Your Word,
living and active.
Sharper than any double-edged sword,
penetrating even to soul and spirit, joints and marrow;
Give us right thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
Restore us to You, O LORD, that we may be restored, build our families;
Renew our days as of old - rejoicing in Religious Freedoms of Thought and Speech,
Restore us, O Lord God of hosts!
Let your face shine, that we may be saved! Amen and Amen.
