Psalm 144, "Prayer for Victory and Prosperity"
1. Blessed be you O God, my rock,
2. God, what are we, that you care for us
1. Yahweh, you are just in all your ways
2. You fulfill the desire of those who fear you,
1. May my mouth speak your praise, Yahweh,
(recite psalm, alternating between two
I am poised, strengthened, and at peace.
There is a common expression that experience is the best teacher. I see the experiences of my past as resources that will help me make wise choices in the future. Even an experience that I consider a mistake shows me what not to do . Seeming mistakes help me learn to trust my resilience and they contribute to my wisdom.
Devoting time to meditation, prayer, and
contemplation, I make choices from an inner place of wisdom and peace.
These are spiritual experiences that help me obtain a deep awareness of
God that cannot be undone by any outer condition. In conscious communion
with God, I understand my relationship with God and my relationships with
the people in my life.
“Talk no more so very proudly…for the Lord is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed.”
