SCRIPTURE TEXT: “You are my portion, O LORD;
I have promised to obey your Words.
I have sought your face with all my heart; be gracious to me according to your promise.
I have considered my ways and have turned my steps to your statutes.
I will hasten and not delay to obey your commands.
Though the wicked bind me with ropes, I will not forget your law.
At midnight I rise to give you thanks for your righteous laws.
I am a friend to all who fear You, to all who follow Your precepts.
The earth is filled with Your love, O LORD; teach me your decrees.
“(Psalm 119:57-64 NIV)
