Belated Psalms, Dillon's visit, and Monday's prayer
Exhausting week with parent/teacher conferences coming right after our arrival home from some days in Cinci. Then we had Dillon for Sat. and some of Sunday. Grandpa Mike took care of him on Sat. while I slept, trying to catch up on lost sleep. I didn't get my Psalms in and am just now posting my Monday prayer when I need to be getting ready for school.
Here's some highlights of a weekend with Dillon. The Psalms and prayer will follow.
O God, You have taught me from my youth, and hitherto have I declared Your wondrous works.
Yes, even when I am old and gray-headed, O God, forsake me not, [but keep me alive] until I have declared Your mighty strength and power to all that are to come.
My lips shall shout for joy when I sing praises to You, and my inner being, which You have redeemed.
My tongue also shall talk of Your righteousness all the day long; for they are put to shame, for they confounded, who seek and demand my hurt.
Psalm 71: 6, 17, 18, 23, and 24
Lord, I know that Your call upon my life includes being a servant, obeying Your commandments,
and always growing as a worshiper.
Help me to do all of these things according to Your will.
Show me where I am failing to do them as fully as You would like.
I know I have been called out of darkness to proclaim Your praises.
So I proclaim them this day and say all praise be to You, O lord of heaven and earth.
