Ronald Knox Psalm 139

prayerAll knowing Father, I lie open to Your scrutiny. You know me as no one else knows me. You know when I sit down and when I stand up. Night or day, near or far; You can read my mind. You know all my thoughts and even before I articulate a word, You know what the word is going to be; such knowledge is more than my little mind can fathom. Father, You are my rear guard and my vanguard and you also have me flanked. Where could I go to escape Your presence, not that I want to. You are greater than Your creation; You are beyond it and You inhabit it–Wherever I go, You are there. Nothing can be hidden from You; You see through the deepest darkness and the most┬ásubtle pretense. You fashioned me in the sanctity of my Mother’s womb; You made me some complicated and complex that the brightest minds cannot comprehend my ways. You know me Father and You can help me know myself. Please reveal me to me so that I can be what pleases You and glorifies Your Son Jesus Christ.
