“Let the words of my mouth,
and the meditation of my heart,
be acceptable in thy sight,
my strength, and my redeemer.”
Our Father in heaven;
“Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.
Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God;
for unto thee will I pray.
My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD;
in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.”
Let the words of my mouth…be acceptable in thy sight –
”O Lord, open thou my lips;
and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.”
Let the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight –
“The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever:
the LORD shall rejoice in his works.
He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth:
he toucheth the hills, and they smoke.
I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live:
I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
My meditation of him shall be sweet:
I will be glad in the LORD.”
O LORD my strength –
“I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.
The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;
my God, my strength, in whom I will trust;
my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
I will call upon the LORD,
who is worthy to be praised:
so shall I be saved from mine enemies.”
And my redeemer –
“For I know that my redeemer liveth,
and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:
And though after my skin worms destroy this body,
yet in my flesh shall I see God:
Whom I shall see for my self,
and mine eyes shall behold, and not another;
though my reins be consumed within me.”
“I am he that liveth, and was dead;
and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen;
and have the keys of hell and of death.”
Father for all you are; my God, my King, my Lord, my Redeemer who lives –
”I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart;
I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.
I will be glad and rejoice in thee;
I will sing praise to thy name,
O thou most High.”
What is your prayer and praise, your heart’s meditation of the Lord? Offer it to him with thanksgiving. He will hear and your meditation will be sweet.
