Pray in this moment (Psalm 34)

pray_in_this_momentThis I pray:

I bless you, LORD,
          in your presence
                    in this moment
My soul magnifies the exalted I AM.                                       
PSALM 34:1-3


This is me: 
                         Yesterday, I sinned.
                    Today, I sin.
               Tomorrow, I will sin.
Oh, how I need your deliverance.
Oh, how you hear and save me!
                 Every day. Every minute.                                              PSALM 34:4-7

                I’m hungry. You fill.
   I’m afraid. You encourage.
                I lack no good thing.                                                         PSALM 34:8-10

To fear you – keep my lips from deceit.
To do good – turn me away from evil.
To be near you – heal my broken spirit.                                  PSALM 34:11-18


You are my Keeper and my Savior and my Redeemer.
          Because of you, this servant stands…uncondemned.
                    I take refuge in you.
In your presence.
In this moment.                                                                                  PSALM 34:19-22

So be it.

Will you stop—for a moment—and pray in this one?
