-Praying Psalm 41

by Dr. D ~ July 22nd, 2015

A Psalm of David.

41 Blessed is the one who considers the poor![1]
In the day of trouble the Lord delivers him;
2 the Lord protects him and keeps him alive;
he is called blessed in the land;
you do not give him up to the will of his enemies.
3 The Lord sustains him on his sickbed;
in his illness you restore him to full health.[2]

4 As for me, I said, “O Lord, be gracious to me;
heal me,[3] for I have sinned against you!”
5 My enemies say of me in malice,
“When will he die, and his name perish?”
6 And when one comes to see me, he utters empty words,
while his heart gathers iniquity;
when he goes out, he tells it abroad.
7 All who hate me whisper together about me;
they imagine the worst for me.[4]

8 They say, “A deadly thing is poured out[5] on him;
he will not rise again from where he lies.”
9 Even my close friend in whom I trusted,
who ate my bread, has lifted his heel against me.
10 But you, O Lord, be gracious to me,
and raise me up, that I may repay them!

11 By this I know that you delight in me:
my enemy will not shout in triumph over me.
12 But you have upheld me because of my integrity,
and set me in your presence forever.

13 Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
from everlasting to everlasting!
Amen and Amen.  (ESV)

Our Father,

Thanks for setting us in your presence forever through faith in your Son Jesus and for the Holy Spirit who comforts us daily while we are weak and the enemy gloats over our condition.

You continue to sustain us with hope and with promises of deliverance while the enemy and his minions try to fill us with doubt and insist that you have abandoned us. Our doctors are not encouraging and our family comes before us in tears. Our friends visit us and do not know what to say.

But you have sent your servants to our bed and their prayers have lifted us up and we can see a glimpse of your Kingdom and we are filled with joy even though we cannot lift our hands to heaven. We worship you Lord and ask you to rise us up in strength once more in order to serve you and continue to proclaim your name and Word before an unbelieving world.

Let us be a testimony before those who doubt your goodness and mercy in this life. Let our healing be an example to those who say that your Kingdom has no power in this world. Rise up O Lord with healing in your wings once more.

Nevertheless, we are content to leave our future in your hands in this life and the life to come. Blessed be your name forever and forever.

In Jesus name, Amen.
