I cry out with my whole heart; Hear me, O LORD! I will keep Your statutes. Psalms 119:145-152

I cry out with my whole heart; Hear me, O LORD! I will keep Your statutes. I cry out to You; Save me, and I will keep Your testimonies. I rise before the dawning of the morning, And cry for help; I hope in Your word. My eyes are awake through the night watches, That I may meditate on Your word.

Hear my voice according to Your lovingkindness; O LORD, revive me according to Your justice. They draw near who follow after wickedness; They are far from Your law. You are near, O LORD, And all Your commandments are truth. Concerning Your testimonies, I have known of old that You have founded them forever.

Crying out to the LORD! Hear me! Save me! I hope! I meditate! Revive me! Other Psalms speak of singing His praises or bowing down before Him. All are forms of Worship. All bring joy to the LORD, God the Almighty. But what is called for is not a casual approach, but a resolute intention to come together to worship. Or if alone, an intentional period of worship.

And it is a two-way street. As my being is filled with praise to the Almighty, there is an up-welling of praise and joy that bubbles in my system. What a Joy to Praise the LORD, God, the Almighty.


Morning Psalm 32, Noon Psalm 119:65-72, Evening Psalm 121,

Alternate Reading Plan based on 7 chapters/day from 7 sections of the Scriptures.

Genesis 21, Judges 21,Job 21, Psalm 21, Isaiah 21, Matthew 21, Romans 21

My groupings are: Genesis-Joshua, Judges to Esther, Job to Song of Solomon, Psalms breaking 119 into convenient sets, Isaiah to Malachi, Matthew to Acts, Romans to Revelation. Set your own up in convenient groupings as fits your study habits.

I suggest either setting aside a period of the day to read all, or break the readings up into morning, mid-day, and evening series. Both approaches have their advantages, and both will build an awareness of the Bible as a whole over time.
