153 Look upon my suffering and rescue me, for I have not forgotten your instructions.  154 Argue my case; take my side! Protect my life as you promised.  155 The wicked are far from rescue, for they do not bother with your decrees.  156LORD, how great is your mercy; let me be revived by following your regulations.  157 Many persecute and trouble me, yet I have not swerved from your laws. 158 Seeing these traitors makes me sick at heart, because they care nothing for your word. 159 See how I love your commandments, LORD . Give back my life because of your unfailing love. 160 The very essence of your words is truth; all your just regulations will stand forever.

145 I pray with all my heart; answer me, LORD ! I will obey your decrees.  146 I cry out to you; rescue me, that I may obey your laws.  147 I rise early, before the sun is up; I cry out for help and put my hope in your words.  148 I stay awake through the night, thinking about your promise.  149 In your faithful love, O LORD, hear my cry; let me be revived by following your regulations.  150 Lawless people are coming to attack me; they live far from your instructions. 151 But you are near, O LORD, and all your commands are true.  152 I have known from my earliest days that your laws will last forever. 


Your Word is my joy and strength and I will do what You say.  You desire my obedience.  I desire Your presence.  I am revived when I follow what you say.  I am changed from a doubter to a believer.  Thank you Lord.  I want to say aloud THANK YOU LORD.  You are worthy of all honor and glory and praise.

You Lord are tested and true. I find joy in Your commands.  Help me to understand Your directions and follow Your narrow path.  Jesus is Lord and Lord of my life.

Don’t let the arrogant oppress me!  123 My eyes strain to see your rescue, to see the truth of your promise fulfilled.  124 I am your servant; deal with me in unfailing love, and teach me your decrees.  125 Give discernment to me, your servant; then I will understand your laws.  126 LORD, it is time for you to act, for these evil people have violated your instructions.  127 Truly, I love your commands more than gold, even the finest gold.  128 Each of your commandments is right.

Do not let my hope be crushed.  117 Sustain me, and I will be rescued; then I will meditate continually on your decrees. 118 But you have rejected all who stray from your decrees. They are only fooling themselves.  119 You skim off the wicked of the earth like scum; no wonder I love to obey your laws!  120 I tremble in fear of you; I stand in awe of your regulations. 


My heart has only One focus Father and that is YOU.  I claim your promises and obey Your Word.  You Lord are my hope.  You Lord equip me to be your faithful follower.
