Reading Psalm 139 (from Psalms for Praying) Lynn McDermott, liturgist
O my Beloved,
You have searched me and known me.
You discern my innermost thoughts.
You find me on the journey and
guide my steps;
You know my strengths
and my weaknesses.
Even before my words rise up in prayer,
you have already heard my heart call.
You encompass me with love wherever I go,
and your strength is my shield.
Such sensitivity is too wonderful for me.
Boundless gratitude is my soul's response.
- Nan C. Merrill, Psalms for Praying
