Psalm 119 v. 25-49

Touch my heart, O God,
  for I feel defeated.
Overcome by sorrow, bewildered
  by the world and its ways.
I don’t know how to be good.
  I’m not sure which way to go.
I turn to you.
  Teach my heart.
I will listen.
  I will follow my desire for you.
Keep me focused, O God—
  not chasing after security or fleeting pleasures.
Help me desire what is deep and abiding—
  And find joy and satisfaction in You.
