Vs. 43 — And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, For I have hoped in Your ordinances.

John Calvin:

Whence we may learn, that the faculty of speaking freely is no more in our power than are the affections of the heart.

Prayer:

God of salvation, my God, take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, for I have hoped in Your ordinances. The word of truth, which You have poured in and established in my heart, let it ever flow, yes with boldness and confidence from my lips. Let the hope that I have in Your ways fuel the zeal to speak of Your goodness and greatness. By the strength and power of Your Spirit, and not my own, may the Gospel of Jesus Christ be spoken through me and all the saints. And, I ask, that by the hearing of the Gospel, that many would come to repentance and saving faith.
