Prayer & Praise
Say to my soul: “I am your salvation.”
So speak that I may hear, O Lord; my heart is listening; open it that it may hear you, and say to my soul: “I am your salvation.”
After hearing this word, may I come in haste to take hold of you.
Hide not your face from me.
Let me see your face even if I die, lest I die with longing to see it.
The house of my soul is too small to receive you; let it be enlarged by you.
It is all in ruins; do you repair it.
There are thing in it – I confess and I know – that must offend your sight. But who shall cleanse it? Or to what others besides you shall I cry out?
From my secret sins cleanse me, O Lord, and from those of others spare your servant.
