psalm-119The Psalms remain a source of praise in Christian worship. They inform us about God and our relationship with God. Additionally, we find Psalms of praise, lament and thanksgiving. A wide range of emotion is swept up in the Psalms.

This morning we look to Psalm 119 as an inspiration towards prayer.

Gracious God, we know the most exquisite joy when we walk in the light of your teaching. For your word is a lamp to our feet, illuminating the path that is before us. We pray that your will be done and we ask that you help us in our living. Often in life we experience deep trouble and we ask that you would lift us up and preserve us. Guide us in our living, may the teaching of your son Jesus Christ inform our lives. May we live in the light of his love, holding it in our hearts forever. Amen.
