Psalm 21--part B

Obviously I am getting further and further from reading just one psalm
a day let alone five. Dietrich Bonhoeffer would not only have his
students read five psalms a day but also meditate on a verse of 
scripture for 30 minutes--the same verse for five days running!

Ps 21:2
You have given Him his heart’s desire
and not withheld the request of his lips.

Papa, You see my heart’s desires, deeper than I can know,
and You set up circumstances, allow me to fail, lose 
control, be adrift, so that You can answer the deepest desires
of my heart. In the midst of the deep yearnings of my heart, 
You pay attention to the little things that I bring to You throughout 
the day. No request is too small for You.
