“For there is not a word on my tongue, but behold, O Lord, You know it altogether.  You have hedged me behind and before, and laid Your hand upon me.  Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain it.”  (Psalm 139:4-9)

Lord, You know how things will unfold.  You have already provided the grace and mercy needed for those who love You.  Everything is in the Lord’s hands and He has already accounted for all that needs to be done.  His hand has stretched out over His creation and His authority assures that when it is all done in this age, it will be His will that prevails.  Come into the Lord presence and dwell with Him always.

Lord, You know what I am going to say before I speak.  Yet, You allow me to continue even when I choose the path of sin.  Guide me, O Lord, in the way You would have me go that I may be led not by the whims of this world, but by Your grace and mercy.  Help me see through what is false now so I may live for what is true.  Let me grasp Your hand of protection that You have placed around me.

Holy Spirit, that blows like the wind, You are the protection before me and behind me.  You show me the narrow way and You illumine the footsteps I take.  Let me hear and listen.  Let me see and perceive.  Help me to always be led by You that I may walk in the eternal way of hope and righteousness. Lord of life, You have given me a mind, so help me to think clearly and always to abide in You.  Amen.
