Versatile Psalmist 86.0
I will not covet my neighbors’ possessions, items or things
I can work in my own garden to the glory of the King of Kings,
I have been blessed with a wife and a family of my very own
Carnal knowledge of another woman, I have not since known.
May my report be truthful and grounded in only the facts
May my words follow the Scriptures in the ways that I act,
May I discipline my children in the way that they should go
May my mercy be swift and my rise to anger be very slow.
May I daily pray for others and not give in to malice or hate
Giving the place of vengeance to the Lord while we await,
May I mind my own business, not be throwing fiery darts
May I not keep track of the world with an array of charts.
May my work and my hobbies not for me become an idol
Enslaving me like a pack mule with a sharp bit and a bridle,
May I take a rest on the Sabbath and be taking time to pray
Praising Lord Jesus of Nazareth; the Truth, Life and the Way.
May my yes be yes and my no be no, never speaking a curse
Lest my sinful deeds overtake me, and I in folly do even worse,
Let every day be one that I am found worthy to flee and escape
May my faith in the Lord be a banner, a shield and a flying cape.
