Sister Benedicta from the Red Plains Monastery told me to change the pronouns around in Psalm 139 and insert my name as if God was speaking directly to me. Praying the psalm this way can have a profound effect on ones orientation to grace. I recommend that you pray it by placing your name in it.
O Mark, I have searched you and known you.
Mark, I know when you sit down and when you rise up;
I discern your thoughts from far away.
I search out your path Mark, and your lying down,
and am acquainted with all your ways.
Even before a word is on your tongue,
Mark, I know it completely.
I hem you in, behind and before,
and lay my hand upon you.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for you;
it is so high that you cannot attain it.
Where can you go Mark from my spirit?
Or where can you flee from my presence?
If you ascend to the sky, I am there;
if you make your bed in darkness, I am there.
If you take wings of the morning
and settle at the farthest limits of the sea,
even there my hand shall lead you Mark,
and my right hand of mercy shall hold you fast.
If you say, “Surly the darkness shall cover me,
and the light around me become night,”
even the darkness is not dark to me Mark;
the night is as bright as the day,
for the darkness is as light to me.
For it was I who formed your inward parts;
I knit you together Mark in your mother’s womb,
You praise me, for you are awesomely and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are my works;
that you know very well.
Your form Mark was not hidden from me,
when you were being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
My eyes beheld your unformed substance.
In my book were written
all the days that were formed for you Mark,
when none of them as yet existed.
How weighty to you are my thoughts, Mark!
How vast is the sum of them!
You try to count them—they are more than the grains of sand;
You come to the end—You are still with me Mark.
I ask for the gift of trust and confidence in Your love for me, Lord.
