Psalm for Prayer - August 24

Psalm 45:1-2, 6-9

 [1] My heart overflows with a pleasing theme;
  I address my verses to the king;
  my tongue is like the pen of a ready scribe.

 [2] You are the most handsome of the sons of men;
  grace is poured upon your lips;
  therefore God has blessed you forever.

[6] Your throne, O God, is forever and ever.
  The scepter of your kingdom is a scepter of uprightness;
[7]  you have loved righteousness and hated wickedness.
Therefore God, your God, has anointed you
  with the oil of gladness beyond your companions;
[8]  your robes are all fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia.
From ivory palaces stringed instruments make you glad;
[9]  daughters of kings are among your ladies of honor;
  at your right hand stands the queen in gold of Ophir.

(Psalm 45:1-2, 6-9 ESV)
