Appeal to God for open eyes


Open my eyes, that I may behold
        wondrous things out of your law.
    I am a sojourner on the earth;
        hide not your commandments from me!
Psalm 119:18-19 ESV

Spurgeon comments on Psalm 119:17-24, our passage for today:

In this section the trials of the way appear to be manifest to the Psalmist’s mind, and he prays accordingly for the help which will meet his case. As in the last eight verses he prayed as a youth newly come into the world, so here he pleads as a servant and a pilgrim, who growingly finds himself to be a stranger in an enemy’s country. His appeal is to God alone, and his prayer is specially direct and personal. He speaks with the Lord as a man speaketh with his friend.
