Week 1 – Prayer for your personal life

Read Psalm 119:17-20, 33-38 NIV

Be good to your servant while I live,

   that I may obey your word.

Open my eyes that I may see

    wonderful things in your law.

I am a stranger on earth;

    do not hide your commands from me.

My soul is consumed with longing

    for your laws at all times.

Teach me, LORD, the way of your decrees,

    that I may follow it to the end. [b]

Give me understanding, so that I may keep your law

    and obey it with all my heart.

Direct me in the path of your commands,

    for there I find delight.

Turn my heart toward your statutes

    and not toward selfish gain.

Turn my eyes away from worthless things;

    preserve my life according to your word. [c]

Fulfill your promise to your servant,

    so that you may be feared.


Lord, I come to You with a servant’s heart. I want to begin each day longing for You. I pray that You give me direction for the day, speaking to me through Your Word. Holy Spirit, I pray You find a welcoming heart within me that is open to Your leading throughout my day. Teach me how to love others as You do. I want my every word and action to give honor to You and help others to see Your light in me. Amen.
