Hurry God

Psalm 141 (paraphrased by David Haas) 

Hurry God!


do not delay--

I need you now! 

My prayer right now is like smoke rising. 

My hands reach high for you. 

God, look out for me, 

watch what comes out of my mouth. 

I don't ever want to say anything

that would hurt someone else. 

I don't ever want to participate

in anything

that is intended to cause harm. 

If my good friends correct me, 

I accept it with thanks. 

But I do not want to accept 

any gift from someone

who would harm me or someone else. 

I pray that I never become like them. 


I need you --

don't run from me, 

don't trick me. 

Let me escape the test.

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your
articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
But just imagine if you added some great graphics or video clips to
give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this website could undeniably
be one of the greatest in its field. Superb blog!

Good post. I learn something new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon every day.
It's always exciting to read through content from
other authors and practice a little something from their sites.

I am really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do
you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues?
A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer
but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?

I've been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any
interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough
for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
the net will be a lot more useful than ever

Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long)
so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly
enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer
but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for novice blog writers?
I'd really appreciate it.
