-Praying Psalm 57

by Dr. D ~ August 7th, 2015

A Miktam[1] of David, when he fled from Saul, in the cave.

57 Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me,
for in you my soul takes refuge;
in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge,
till the storms of destruction pass by.
2 I cry out to God Most High,
to God who fulfills his purpose for me.
3 He will send from heaven and save me;
he will put to shame him who tramples on me. Selah
God will send out his steadfast love and his faithfulness!

4 My soul is in the midst of lions;
I lie down amid fiery beasts—
the children of man, whose teeth are spears and arrows,
whose tongues are sharp swords.

5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
Let your glory be over all the earth!

6 They set a net for my steps;
my soul was bowed down.
They dug a pit in my way,
but they have fallen into it themselves. Selah
7 My heart is steadfast, O God,
my heart is steadfast!
I will sing and make melody!
8 Awake, my glory![2]
Awake, O harp and lyre!
I will awake the dawn!
9 I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples;
I will sing praises to you among the nations.
10 For your steadfast love is great to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the clouds.

11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
Let your glory be over all the earth!  (ESV)

Our Father,

You are exalted, O God, above the heavens, your glory is over all the earth.  Be merciful to me, O Lord, be merciful to me. I take refuge in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge till the storms of destruction pass me by.

Send down from Heaven your hosts to protect me from the evil one and his minions, from his representatives among the people who pursue me and want to destroy my reputation and life. Who want to still my voice and stop my testimony of your goodness and love.

I dwell in the midst of lions; I lie down amid fiery beasts— the children of humanity, whose teeth are like spears and arrows, whose tongues are sharp with words that destroy and bear false witness. Their nets are set and their pit is dug and my destiny seems to be in their hands.

Save me O Lord from such who are clever through the inspiration of the enemy and sound so true and logical that even my friends have a hard time disbelieving and even my family is among those with doubts.

But you are exalted, O God, above the heavens, your glory is over all the earth. I cry out to you O God Most High, fulfill your purpose in me. Shine your light into the darkness and let the followers of the evil one fall into their own well crafted pit and be ambushed by their own well sounding words. Let the truth prevail and bring down the the false mountain of evidence that seems so formidable. 

But you are exalted, O God, above the heavens, your glory is over all the earth. The enemy cannot stand in your presence and his minions shrink away in the presence of your heavenly hosts. My enemies will not be able to stand before me when the light of the truth is revealed. Let your light shine into the darkness and let truth be a beacon that cannot be ignored.

I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among all who listen, I will sing praises to you wherever I go, and my testimony will continue to go forth to the nations. For your steadfast love is greater than the enemy, your faithfulness beyond the clouds and your salvation is forever. The evil one will not prevail. For you are exalted, O God, above the heavens, and your glory is over all the earth.

In Jesus name, Amen.
