The God-Centred Prayer of an Earth-Bound Man

July 7, 2013 Preacher: Julian Freeman Series: A Summer in the Psalms

Passage: Psalm 5:1–5:12

Lead Me in Your Righteousness

To the choirmaster: for the flutes. A Psalm of David.

Give ear to my words, O Lord;
  consider my ugroaning.
Give attention to the sound of my cry,
  my King and my God,
  for wto you do I pray.
O Lord, in the morning you hear my voice;
  in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch.

For you are not a God who delights in wickedness;
  evil may not dwell with you.
The zboastful shall not astand before your eyes;
  you bhate all evildoers.
You destroy those who speak lies;
  the Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.

But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love,
  will enter your house.
I will bow down toward your holy temple
  in the fear of you.
Lead me, O Lord, in your righteousness
  because of my enemies;
  make your way straight before me.

For there is no truth in their mouth;
  their inmost self is destruction;
their throat is lan open grave;
  they flatter with their tongue.
Make them bear their guilt, O God;
  let them fall by their own counsels;
because of the abundance of their transgressions cast them out,
  for they have rebelled against you.

But let all who ptake refuge in you rejoice;
  let them ever sing for joy,
  and spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may exult in you.
For you sbless the righteous, O Lord;
you cover him with favor as with a shield.

(Psalm 5:1-12, ESV)
