Psalm for Prayer - August 29, 2016

Psalm 139:1–6, 13-18 (ESV)

1O Lord, you have searched me and known me!

2You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar.

3You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways.

4Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it altogether.

5You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me.

6Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high; I cannot attain it.

13For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.

14I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.

15My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.

16Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.

17How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!

18If I would count them, they are more than the sand. I awake, and I am still with you.
