I bundle up my entire being and offer it to You, my loving God.

I trust in You for everything, Father.  Don’t let me down; don’t let sin win out over me.   I know You won’t fail anyone who clings close to You.

The wicked ones will hang their heads in shame for the evil things they do.  Let me see your character, Father; teach me more of You.

Gently surround me as You disclose the reality of Your being,
for You’re the One and only God. I linger always for Your presence.

Father, remember me with Your gentle mercies of love, for they go way back to my beginnings.

Wipe away the foolish evil things I did when I was young, and with a loving heart, break bread with me, for You are all good and righteous.

Almighty God is upstanding and the mighty One; He will show people their sinful ways.  He will show mercy to those who are sorry for their wrongs. He will instill in them the good things of life. God is loving, kind and steadfast to those who live righteously.

For Your sake, Father, forgive my sins, for they are numerous.

Who doesn’t stand in awe of God? He knows how to lead everyone in His ways to instill in them a peaceful spirit.

His heirs will be blessed with the land. God remains with those who honor him. He will let them know what he expects of them.

My focus lies on my God, for He will rescue me from the pit.

Look on me and have mercy, for I am desolate and ill at heart.

My problems are getting worse. Oh, save my life!

See how sinful I am. Forgive my sins!

Many people seek to harm me; see how they despise me and are cruel.

Protect me and rescue my life. Don’t forsake me, for I trust You.

Wrap me in Your integrity and uprightness, for I wait for You.

Ransom Your people Israel, Lord, and free them of their burdens.
