Praying through Psalm 139

Father, thank you that Your hand is not too short to save.
You lay Your invisible hand upon me (v.6).
It is always upon me.
Thank you for being the omniscient LORD
who provides comfort, protection, and accountability (vv.1-6).

Wherever I am and wherever I go,
“even there Your hand shall lead me
and Your right hand shall hold me.”
Your hand leads me in Your paths
for You are the omnipresent LORD (vv.7-12).

Your hand creates and governs all things for Your glory.
Thank you that the skillful hand of a Sovereign Creator
fashioned me in my mother’s womb.
That hand ordained the days of my life
before one of them came to be (vv.13-18).

You are the potter. I am the clay.
Mold me and make me into the image of Your Son.
May I never resist the press of Your hands.
How assuring it is to know
that the days that were formed for me
where written in your book before there was one of them.

Thank You Lord for being a just Judge
who examines the hearts of all men.
Your hand is not partial and always judges justly.
Would You search my heart
and root out any grievous way
and lead me “in the way everlasting?” AMEN (vv.19-24).
