A Evening Prayer of a Woman of Faith
As the deer desires rivers of water, so my soul desires You.
When I come in desperate need and meet with You, tears have been my food day and night. It is in You, Lord, that I find hope. I will praise You again for being near me. When my soul is troubled within me, You send Your loving kindness. You have given me a heavenly song that stays with me through the night. I will praise You, my help and my God.
O my Strength, I will sing praises to You. For You are my strong place.
O Lord, continue to stand by me for I have lived my life without blame. I have trusted in You without changing. Continue to test me and try me. Test my mind and my heart. For Your loving kindness is always in front of my eyes and I have walked in Your truth. I will wash my hands of any guilt and will humbly approach Your altar.
O Lord. I will speak with the voice of thanks and tell of all Your great works. For You are my strong place.
I love the house where You live, the place where Your shining greatness lives. As for me, I will live a life without blame. Make me free and show me loving kindness. My foot stands on a good place. I will give honor to You in the meeting of worship. In Your loving kindness, You will meet me. I will sing of Your strength. Yes, I will sing with joy of Your loving kindness in the morning. For You have been a safe place for me in times of trouble.
