Psalm 119:121-136

Hi Friends,
Last night, our study focused on what the Psalmist asked of God. As you read the passage, write down everything he asked God to do.


 

Psalm 119:121-136

New International Version (NIV)
   ע Ayin
 121 I have done what is righteous and just;
   do not leave me to my oppressors.
122 Ensure your servant’s well-being;
   do not let the arrogant oppress me.
123 My eyes fail, looking for your salvation,
   looking for your righteous promise.
124 Deal with your servant according to your love
   and teach me your decrees.
125 I am your servant; give me discernment
   that I may understand your statutes.
126 It is time for you to act, LORD;
   your law is being broken.
127 Because I love your commands
   more than gold, more than pure gold,
128 and because I consider all your precepts right,
   I hate every wrong path.
   פ Pe
 129 Your statutes are wonderful;
   therefore I obey them.
130 The unfolding of your words gives light;
   it gives understanding to the simple.
131 I open my mouth and pant,
   longing for your commands.
132 Turn to me and have mercy on me,
   as you always do to those who love your name.
133 Direct my footsteps according to your word;
   let no sin rule over me.
134 Redeem me from human oppression,
   that I may obey your precepts.
135 Make your face shine on your servant
   and teach me your decrees.
136 Streams of tears flow from my eyes,
   for your law is not obeyed. 

Now, look at your list. Which of these do you need to ask God for? Take 5-10 minutes and write a prayer letter to God asking for his help in this area.
