To day in a National Day of Prayer. I thought Psalms 32 would be perfect.
1Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.
2Blessed is the man whose sis the Lord does not count against him and in whose spirit is not deceit.
3When I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long.
4For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer.
5Then I acknowledged my sis to you and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the Lord"-- and you forgave the guilt of my sin.
6Therefore let everyone who is godly pray to you while you may be found; surely when the might waters rise, they will not reach him.
7You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.
8I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.
9Do not be like the horse of the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you.
10Many are the woes of the wicket, but the Lord's unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in him.
11Rejoice in the Lord and be glad, you righteous; sing. all you who are upright in heart!
