Psalm of David. To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul. Psalm 25:1 God looks not at the elegancy of your prayers, to see how neat they are; nor yet at the geometry of your prayers, to see how long they are; nor yet at the arithmetic of your prayers, to see how many they are; nor yet at the music of your prayers, nor yet at the sweetness of your voice, nor yet at the logic of your prayers; but at the sincerity of your prayers, how hearty they are. Thomas Brooks, 1608-81
O my God, I trust in You; do not let me be ashamed; let not my enemies triumph over me. Psalm 25:2 Lord, give me the best response when I'm pushed beyond my limits. Anon
No one whose hope is in You will ever be put to shame. Psalm 25:3a Faith's way of walking is to cast all care upon the Lord, and then to anticipate good results from the worst of calamities. Charles Haddon Spurgeon, 1834-92
.but they will be put to shame who are treacherous without excuse. Psalm 25:3b The wounded and misguided are afforded more mercy from God than those who spring forth with premeditated venom.
Show me your ways, O Lord.. Psalm 25:4a Spending time with the Master will elevate your thinking. The more you pray, the more will be revealed. You will understand. You will smile and nod your head as you identify with others who fight long battles and find great joy on their knees. Joni Eareckson Tada
