You deliver me from my illusions, and, through Love, my heart opens to Wisdom.


A Lectio Divina meditation on Psalm 54 from Nan Merrill’s book Psalms for Praying

Experience stillness and in the quiet hear what God is offering from these rich and hope-filled words.

Awaken me, O Blessed Healer with

your holy mercy,

that I might be free of fear.

Hear my prayer, O Holy One;

give ear to the words of

my mouth.

For nagging doubts assail me,

bringing loneliness and pain;

I remember not the Beloved, so

overwhelming are my fears.

Yet behold, You are my helper,

the upholder of my life.

With you I have strength to

face my fears;

Your faithfulness will help me

transform them into love.

With boundless confidence, I

abandon myself into your Heart;

I give praise to your Holy Name,

O Beloved,

With gratitude and joy.

for You deliver me from my illusions,

And, through Love, my heart

opens to Wisdom.
