Psalm 141

My Eyes Are Toward You, O God

            8 For my eyes are toward You, O GOD, the Lord;

            In You I take refuge; do not leave me defenseless.

·         We cannot too carefully remember that prayer is a spiritual sacrifice demanding the heart and soul.

·         The more the righteous knows of himself, the more earnestly does he desire and seek the grace of God to restrain, guard and sanctify him.

·         True Christian heroism does not proceed from strong nerves, or brute courage, but from a faith, which against hope believes in hope.
