I LIFT UP MY EYES – Psalm 4: 1-5

Psalm 4:1 : Answer me when I call to you,  my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress;  have mercy on me and hear my prayer. 

How long will you people turn my glory into shame?      How long will you love delusions and seek false gods?  Know that the Lord has set apart his faithful servant for himself;     the Lord hears when I call to him.

Tremble and do not sin;  when you are on your beds   search your hearts and be silent. Offer the sacrifices of the righteous   and trust in the Lord.

Response : 4:1-5 :  Hear me for thy mercy-sake, O Lord. . Help me as I  ask for  such blessings as pardon, and justifying righteousness, and eternal life. Let me not fall into sin but maintain holy reverence of Your glory and majesty. Please help me examine any sin with  serious self-reflection. Help me  fasten my thoughts  upon that which is good, and keep close to it. Help me to consider my  ways, and before I  turn to sleep at night, examine my conscience with respect to what I have done today; particularly what I  have done amiss, that I may repent of it. When I awake in the night, may I meditate upon You, and the things that belong to  peace. When I am upon my sick-bed, particularly, help me  consider my ways.

Help  me be still. when I have asked conscience a question, be serious, be silent, wait for an answer. Let  me  not open  my  mouth to excuse sin. Search me O Lord and cleanse me. Purify me.  Like the Psalmist may all my confidence be  only: Put my trust in the Lord. Amen.
