Morning or Anytime meditation: Psalm 119:25-32

Meditation and Prayer on Psalm 119:25-32

O Precious Father, it is not enough for me to crawl and creep in the way of Your commandments. I would 
run in the way, but my heart is so dull and heavy. My soul clings to the dust, and I must be enlivened by thy 
Word. I have cried to You, and You have heard me. O Precious Father, teach me Your statutes.

I confess my sins; I confess that my ways are sinful and come short of thy glory. But I would rather speak of 
Your wondrous works; how different they are from mine. I know that I am created in Your image, but my 
works fall so far short of Your glory.

When I think of such things, my heart melts within me and I have no strength. O Father, strengthen me with 
might in the inner man. Fortify my heart to be valiant and faithful.

Lies are the work of the devil, and there is nothing more deadly for my soul than false doctrine and lying 
tongues. Your Law is the truth and it is taught to me by Your only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, the 
light of the world. I choose the way of obedience, dear Lord, because Your Spirit has taught me to lay Your 
truth always before me.

I cling to Your testimonies and they are my necessary food and drink. Do not put me to shame for loving 
Your and holding to Your commandments in a harsh and unbelieving world.

Enlarge my heart, O Precious Father, that I might run in the way of Your commandments.


“25 My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou me according to thy word. 
26 I have declared my ways, and thou heardest me: teach me thy statutes. 
27 Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.
28 My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me according unto thy word. 
29 Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me thy law graciously. 
30 I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid before me. 
31 I have stuck unto thy testimonies: O LORD, put me not to shame. 
32 I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart.” 
(Psalms 119:25-32 AV)
