Psalms 143:1 A Psalm of David. Hear my prayer, O LORD, give ear to my supplications:in thy faithfulness answer me, and in thy righteousness.
I remember the days of old; I meditate on all thy works; muse on the work of thy hands. I stretch forth my hands unto thee: my soul thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty land. Selah.
Hear me speedily, O LORD: my spirit faileth: hide not thy face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.
Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust:cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.
Deliver me, O LORD, from mine enemies: I flee unto thee to hide me.
Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.
Quicken me, O LORD, for thy name’s sake: for thy righteousness’ sake bring my soul out of trouble.

Dear Lord… Father
Hear my prayer for I am very needy, answer me according to thy faithfulness.
I am remembering the many times you have come to my rescue in the past. I remember calling upon you and you hearing me and supplying my need.
I plead with you to hear.
Hear me now; I feel so weak
Your mercy, your goodness, your longsuffering is the reason I want to hear from you.
Your words show me the way to walk.
Free me from my doubts and fears, as I run to that rock that is higher than I for my refuge.
Jesus, your example of doing God’s will shows me how to submit my will.
You have gone this way before me, you are my intercessor to the Father, you are the access to the supply of all my needs.
Oh, Lord, at times I feel as if I must hope for hope, bring again that assurance that you are with me, that you will never leave or forsake me, that you are holding me by the right hand, so I can do all things by your grace and strength.
Thank you, O God, for your mercy does endure forever. Amen
May we ‘walk in grace’ together.
Let us find ‘joy in the journey and good times in the going.’
