Psalm for Prayer - January 18, 2016

Psalm 19 - To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

[1] The heavens declare the glory of God,
  and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
[2] Day to day pours out speech,
  and night to night reveals knowledge.
[3] There is no speech, nor are there words,
  whose voice is not heard.
[4] Their voice goes out through all the earth,
  and their words to the end of the world.
In them he has set a tent for the sun,
[5]  which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
  and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy.
[6] Its rising is from the end of the heavens,
  and its circuit to the end of them,
  and there is nothing hidden from its heat.

[7] The law of the LORD is perfect,
  reviving the soul;
the testimony of the LORD is sure,
  making wise the simple;
[8] the precepts of the LORD are right,
  rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the LORD is pure,
  enlightening the eyes;
[9] the fear of the LORD is clean,
  enduring forever;
the rules of the LORD are true,
  and righteous altogether.
[10] More to be desired are they than gold,
  even much fine gold;
sweeter also than honey
  and drippings of the honeycomb.
[11] Moreover, by them is your servant warned;
  in keeping them there is great reward.

[12] Who can discern his errors?
  Declare me innocent from hidden faults.
[13] Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins;
  let them not have dominion over me!
Then I shall be blameless,
  and innocent of great transgression.

[14] Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
  be acceptable in your sight,
  O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.
 

(Psalm 19 ESV)
