Psalm 119:129-136 Break open Your Word within me

129 Lord God, every word You speak is a living miracle! Your laws are so wonderful and I long to obey everything You say. 130 Break open Your Word within me. Unfold Your revelation-light so that it shines bright. Open my heart and grant me childlike faith so that I can obtain more insight into Your glorious plans. 131 Just like the deer pants for water, my soul longs for You and more of Your Word. I open wide my mouth so that I can inhale and absorb more of Your precious Word. I wait with eager expectation for You to grant me revelation of Your commands. 132 Lord, turn Your heart towards me, please reveal Your amazing grace; Your kind favor; and endless love because that is what You promise to do for those who love You and follow Your ways. 133 Establish each one of my steps so that I walk upon Your path of promises, guide me by Your Word. Do not let my weakness have dominion over me, I never want to stray from You and Your ways Lord. 134 Redeem me from the oppressive grip of ungodly men and women so that I can keep Your precepts. 135 Let Your shining face shine with pleasure as You look at me. Instruct me to walk out each of Your decrees. 136 Rivers of grief pour from my eyes when I see the rebellious people break Your laws and ignore Your precious instructions. Lord, help even the simplest of minds to grasp the wonders of Your Word.

My paraphrased version is from the New Living Translation; the Amplified; the Message; and The Passion Translation.

Praying Psalm 119:129-136 Break open Your Word within me: Oh Lord God, how I long to hear more from You, for every Word You speak is a living miracle! Your laws are so wonderful, help me to obey everything You say. Holy Spirit, please break open Your Word within me, unfold Your revelation-light so that it shines bright. Please come and open my heart, grant me childlike faith so that I obtain more insight into Your glorious plans. Lord, just like the deer pants for water my soul cries out with longing for more of You and Your ways. I know that I become so dry and weary without You. I open my mouth wide so that I can inhale more of Your precious life-giving Word. I wait with eager expectation, Lord please grant me more revelation of Your commands. Almighty God, please turn Your heart towards me. Jesus, please reveal more of Your amazing grace. Holy Spirit, pour out Your kind favor and endless love upon me.

I never ever want to stray from You and Your ways. God, please deliver and redeem me from the oppressive grip of ungodly men and women. Empower me to live out and keep to Your precepts. Abba Father, let Your glorious shining face shine upon me with pleasure as Your gaze falls upon me. How I long to see You face to face. Holy Spirit, come and breathe Your words of life into me, instruct me to walk out each one of Your decrees. Jesus, rivers of grief pour from my eyes when I see the rebellious people break Your laws and ignore Your precious instructions.
