Lord, at all times –
May praise be on my lips.
I will boast in You:
May all hear and rejoice:
“Glorify the Lord and
Exalt His name”.
I sought the Lord, and
He took away my fears : ) .
“Look at Him and be radiant –
Never covered with shame!”
(The Lord heard the poor man
And took away his troubles).
“The Lord is good!
Come, taste, and see!
Take refuge in Him,
And blessed you’ll be!
Fear the Lord –
And lack nothing!
You, who seek Him,
Will lack no good thing –
And will be delivered!
Come! … Listen … Love life!
Do good … Seek peace …
And pursue it!”
HE SEES THE RIGHTEOUS,
AND LISTENS TO THEIR CRY.
HE’S CLOSE TO THE BROKEN HEARTED;
AND SAVES THE CRUSHED SPIRITS.
THE LORD REDEEMS THOSE –
WHO TAKE REFUGE IN HIM !

I read this Psalm this morning, noted down the main lines (as I saw them). It has truth and advice, but most of all, it tells us that the Lord has a heart for us, cares for us, forgives us and makes many promises.
Take refuge in Him …….. TODAY !
Perhaps you can pray this prayer today:
Thank You so much for loving me;
And letting me know that you can take away my fears,
And things from the past,
And I’ll never be covered with shame.
I give these to You, today.
Please forgive me.
Thank you that you will listen to my cry –
And lift me up;
Especially when I am hurting inside.
I pray that I will learn to trust in You,
More each day, and seek refuge in You.
I look forward to knowing and seeing
All Your promises and plans for me.
May I glorify You and boast in Your name;
And may praise be on my lips LORD, AT ALL TIMES.
I want to lack nothing,
Yet feel radiant and know Your joy.
I want to come to You and
Taste and see what is good.
I want to come to You and
Listen… and seek Your peace.
I pray that I will be righteous,
Do good things, and love my life.
I pray that I will always know Your peace
And feel You near me.
I give You my life in it’s entirety.
I glorify You Lord
And exalt Your name
Thank you for the gift of salvation –
Your gift to me, which I accept with love and thanks,
And the knowledge that I am saved from an eternal death,
And will spend the rest of my days with You.
Thank You Lord, so much.
I give You my hand;
And when things have been tough,
I will look back and see …….
One set of footprints in the sand
where you have carried me.
N.B. If this is the first time you have said this kind of prayer, and you believe it in your heart to have meaning and truth, and you want to be forgiven for things in your past which you are probably not happy about or proud of, find someone to talk to, perhaps a Christian friend or go along to your local church. I pray that you will start a new life, believing in and knowing Jesus, trusting in Him to guide you for the rest of your days.
Perhaps you have said this kind of prayer once, or many times; it is good to affirm what you believe and have faith in.
MAY GOD BLESS YOU +
