A longing prayer based on Psalm 16
God, engrave this song upon my heart –
Your path leads to pleasant places,
and every good thing that I encounter
as I walk within Your way
is a gift, a treasure from You.
You counsel and correct me.
You whisper words of wisdom to me.
Like star light on a dark night,
You show me what to do next.
You wrap Your presence around me every moment
so that I am assured of Your closeness and availability
and may rest confident in the knowledge
that You will not abandon me to the realm of death.
As this new week unfolds,
may I be open to the continual revelation
of Your resurrection life
and come face-to-face with You –
