-Praying Psalm 40

by Request ~ July 21st, 2015

A Psalm of David.

40 I waited patiently for the Lord;
he inclined to me and heard my cry.
2 He drew me up from the pit of destruction,
out of the miry bog,
and set my feet upon a rock,
making my steps secure.
3 He put a new song in my mouth,
a song of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear,
and put their trust in the Lord.

4 Blessed is the man who makes
the Lord his trust,
who does not turn to the proud,
to those who go astray after a lie!
5 You have multiplied, O Lord my God,
your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us;
none can compare with you!
I will proclaim and tell of them,
yet they are more than can be told.

6 In sacrifice and offering you have not delighted,
but you have given me an open ear.[1]
Burnt offering and sin offering
you have not required.
7 Then I said, “Behold, I have come;
in the scroll of the book it is written of me:
8 I delight to do your will, O my God;
your law is within my heart.”

9 I have told the glad news of deliverance[2]
in the great congregation;
behold, I have not restrained my lips,
as you know, O Lord.
10 I have not hidden your deliverance within my heart;
I have spoken of your faithfulness and your salvation;
I have not concealed your steadfast love and your faithfulness
from the great congregation.

11 As for you, O Lord, you will not restrain
your mercy from me;
your steadfast love and your faithfulness will
ever preserve me!
12 For evils have encompassed me
beyond number;
my iniquities have overtaken me,
and I cannot see;
they are more than the hairs of my head;
my heart fails me.

13 Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me!
O Lord, make haste to help me!
14 Let those be put to shame and disappointed altogether
who seek to snatch away my life;
let those be turned back and brought to dishonor
who delight in my hurt!
15 Let those be appalled because of their shame
who say to me, “Aha, Aha!”

16 But may all who seek you
rejoice and be glad in you;
may those who love your salvation
say continually, “Great is the Lord!”
17 As for me, I am poor and needy,
but the Lord takes thought for me.
You are my help and my deliverer;
do not delay, O my God!  (ESV)

Our Father,

Praise you name Lord, for you have heard our cry and you have set our feet upon the rock. You have delivered us from evil and from our own iniquities. You have placed a new song in our hearts and we lift our hands in joy. For your Son Jesus has come into our lives and has given us purpose and salvation.

By your Holy Spirit, you have written your laws and teachings upon our hearts and we cannot be still but we tell others of your great deeds for us and the blessings that you are faithful to give to all believers.

The evil one tries to surround us with his minions and bring us down in this life but you are greater than him and your angels surround our families providing protection.

Those who who follow the world and the master of culture do not comprehend the confidence you have given us nor the hope that we have received. We pray for those who do not know you and have no purpose in this life nor any assurance of the life to come. Without your Son Jesus, all have built their lives on sifting sands without hope or direction.

Inspire our voices and give us words to speak to those who do not know you or your Son. Let our words be blessed with your Spirit and have affect upon their hearts. May all who seek you find the truth and rejoice and be glad.

Let our lips continually praise you and declare your goodness and greatness. For you are our help and our deliverer; you bless us in good times and in bad. Praise your name Lord and the name of your Son.

In Jesus name, Amen.
