-Praying Psalm 71

by Request ~ August 21st, 2015

71 In you, O Lord, do I take refuge;
let me never be put to shame!
2 In your righteousness deliver me and rescue me;
incline your ear to me, and save me!
3 Be to me a rock of refuge,
to which I may continually come;
you have given the command to save me,
for you are my rock and my fortress.

4 Rescue me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked,
from the grasp of the unjust and cruel man.
5 For you, O Lord, are my hope,
my trust, O Lord, from my youth.
6 Upon you I have leaned from before my birth;
you are he who took me from my mother’s womb.
My praise is continually of you.

7 I have been as a portent to many,
but you are my strong refuge.
8 My mouth is filled with your praise,
and with your glory all the day.
9 Do not cast me off in the time of old age;
forsake me not when my strength is spent.
10 For my enemies speak concerning me;
those who watch for my life consult together
11 and say, “God has forsaken him;
pursue and seize him,
for there is none to deliver him.”

12 O God, be not far from me;
O my God, make haste to help me!
13 May my accusers be put to shame and consumed;
with scorn and disgrace may they be covered
who seek my hurt.
14 But I will hope continually
and will praise you yet more and more.
15 My mouth will tell of your righteous acts,
of your deeds of salvation all the day,
for their number is past my knowledge.
16 With the mighty deeds of the Lord God I will come;
I will remind them of your righteousness, yours alone.

17 O God, from my youth you have taught me,
and I still proclaim your wondrous deeds.
18 So even to old age and gray hairs,
O God, do not forsake me,
until I proclaim your might to another generation,
your power to all those to come.
19 Your righteousness, O God,
reaches the high heavens.
You who have done great things,
O God, who is like you?
20 You who have made me see many troubles and calamities
will revive me again;
from the depths of the earth
you will bring me up again.
21 You will increase my greatness
and comfort me again.

22 I will also praise you with the harp
for your faithfulness, O my God;
I will sing praises to you with the lyre,
O Holy One of Israel.
23 My lips will shout for joy,
when I sing praises to you;
my soul also, which you have redeemed.
24 And my tongue will talk of your righteous help all the day long,
for they have been put to shame and disappointed
who sought to do me hurt.  (ESV)


Our Father,

You have been there for us from the very start, we have leaned on you from before our birth; you are he who called us from our mother’s womb. We continually praise your name and the name of your Son Jesus.

You have been there with us through many trials, troubles and calamities, you were faithful through them all and revived us again and again. You are our hope in this life and our salvation in the next.

Our lips will shout for joy and sing praises to you; our soul also rejoices for you have redeemed us forever. Our voices will tell of your righteous acts, of your deeds of salvation while there is yet day. With your mighty power  we will take the good news of your coming Kingdom to every nation, we will sing of your praises and the salvation of your Son Jesus in every tongue.

The enemy comes against us and his minions try to bring us down. His followers make fun of us and discount your words and deeds of past generations. Put them to shame and demonstrate your power in this generation to an unbelieving people. Let them be surprised and let the nation be revived.

Strengthen us for the task even now when our heads are grey and we are called old and dismissed as those who history has past by; they call your Word- ‘irrelevant teachings of a bygone era;’ and your mighty deeds- ‘nothing but myths and superstitions from the past.’

Through signs and wonders confound the evil one and help us bring the good news to a new generation that has not heard nor seen your mighty works. Let your word be demonstrated in power and let the church rise up from the dust and become an ensign of your Kingdom that people will gather to from every nation to sing your praises in every language.

In Jesus name, Amen.
