A New Zealand Prayer Book

A Psalm for Tuesday

Your hands have made me and fashioned me:
give me understanding that I may know your mind.

Those who fear you will be glad when they see me,
because I have put my trust in your word.

I know that your judgments are right,
that in your faithfulness you have caused me to be troubled.

Let your merciful kindness be my comfort,
according to your promise to your servant.

Let your loving mercies come to me, that I may live,
for your law is my delight.

Let the proud be confounded, who twist us with deceit,
and I will meditate on your wisdom.

Let those who fear you turn to me,
that they may know your truth.

—Psalm 119:73-79 -- A New Zealand Prayer Book, p. 149.

In peace,
The Rev. Linda McCloud
The Episcopal Church of Our Savior at Honey Creek
