  • Praise The Lord our God amen.
  • MockongBird for verse 2
    This verse is not to be taken lightly. To ask the Lord to examine me and try my heart is very serious I must be prepared for the revealing of things that need to be taken out of my life and replaced with new from the Lord !! To receive correction and possible chastisement . I must depend on my Lord to help me to rid myself of unclean actions and words in my life. The grace of my Lord God is sufficient . I will and can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. Amen !!!! Examine Prove Try Am I ready for this !!!!!
