Remove from me the way of lying:
and grant me thy law graciously.
~ Psalm 119:29
He did not seek a void. He wanted lying removed that God’s law might occupy. The request is a very humble one. Graciously here has the thought of bending, or stooping in kindness to an inferior. He acknowledged God superior, yea, even supreme. He bowed low and appealed to God’s goodness and kindness. God delights in this kind of prayer (1 Peter 5:5-7).
