Today and last Sunday gave me two of my favorite psalms in a row, to my very great joy. This morning's was Psalm 63 which I was taught to recite upon awakening every morning while I was in the convent.
Oh God, you are my God; egerly I seek you;What a wonderful prayer for beginning the day. Truly.
My soul thirsts for you, my flesh faints for you
As in a barren and dry land
Where there is no water.
Here's another part I particularly like:
For your loving-indness is better than life itself;And this one:
My soul clings to you;I was taught many years ago in Sunday School that every prayer I would ever need could be found in the Psalter. It's so true.
Your right hand holds me fast.
