Day Twenty-two of Thirty Days of Prayers from the Psalms
Confessions of the Heart
Psalms 28, 29, 31, 139
Hear my cry for mercy as I call to you for help, as I lift up my hands toward your Most
Holy Place. Psalm 28:2
Investigate my life, O God. I am an open book to you. You watch me grow through all
stages of my life. I ask that you come close to me today and hear my prayers.
I tell you what I need, calling out for help and lifting my arms toward
your inner sanctum. I am asking you to carry me like a good shepherd carries his
sheep. I run to you, God, for dear life. Free me from the traps I so easily fall in. If I put
my life in your hands, you do not drop me, you never let me down. I ask for your
kindness when I feel hollow inside. My troubles can wear me out. Desperately, I throw
myself on you. You are my God. Hour by hour, I place my days in your hands. You warm
me with your smile, you save me because you love me. Help me to be brave, to be
strong, and not to give up.
