With my whole heart I cry; answer me, O LORD! I will keep your statutes. I call to you; save me, that I may observe your testimonies. I rise before dawn and cry for help; I hope in your words. My eyes are awake before the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promise. Hear my voice according to your steadfast love; O LORD, according to your justice give me life.
Lord, as I begin a time of meditation on Your Psalms, open them up to me, clear my mind of distractions, help me to focus upon them as vehicles of praise, as worship leaders, as Your way of teaching me to praise and worship You in Spirit and in Truth.
