Psalm for Prayer - September 28, 2015

Psalm 26. Of David.

 [1] Vindicate me, O LORD,
  for I have walked in my integrity,
  and I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.
[2] Prove me, O LORD, and try me;
  test my heart and my mind.
[3] For your steadfast love is before my eyes,
  and I walk in your faithfulness.

 [4] I do not sit with men of falsehood,
  nor do I consort with hypocrites.
[5] I hate the assembly of evildoers,
  and I will not sit with the wicked.

 [6] I wash my hands in innocence
  and go around your altar, O LORD,
[7] proclaiming thanksgiving aloud,
  and telling all your wondrous deeds.

 [8] O LORD, I love the habitation of your house
  and the place where your glory dwells.
[9] Do not sweep my soul away with sinners,
  nor my life with bloodthirsty men,
[10] in whose hands are evil devices,
  and whose right hands are full of bribes.

 [11] But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity;
  redeem me, and be gracious to me.
[12] My foot stands on level ground;
  in the great assembly I will bless the LORD.

(Psalm 26 ESV)
