The Heavens Declare Your Glory, O God

The Heavens Declare Your Glory, O God

Personalized Scripture Prayer: Psalm 19

The heavens declare your glory, O God; the skies proclaim the work of your hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.

In the heavens you have pitched a tent for the sun. It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, like a champion rejoicing to run his course. It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is deprived of its warmth.

Your law, LORD, is perfect, refreshing the soul. Your statutes are trustworthy, making wise the simple. Your precepts are right,giving joy to the heart. Your commands are radiant, giving light to the eyes. Your fear pure, enduring forever.

Your decrees, LORD, are firm, and all of them are righteous.They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey,than honey from the honeycomb. By them your servants are warned; in keeping them there is great reward.

But who of us can discern our own errors? Forgive our hidden faults. Keep your servants also from willful sins; may they not rule over us.Then we will be blameless, innocent of great transgression.

May these words of our mouths and this meditation of our hearts be pleasing in your sight, LORD, our Rock and our Redeemer.
