Psalm 32 - praying the psalms

Daily Bread:  Thoughts & Prayers
from the Psalms

~ Psalm 32 ~


BLESSED are we !

Our sins are
FORGIVEN !

WHY
do we go about
heavy hearted and weak
silent in our guilt ?

LET US ALL
come to you
and
confess our faults !

For you alone
FORGIVE our guilt
PROTECT us from trouble
SURROUND us with songs of deliverance
TEACH us the way we should go
and
WATCH over us.

The LORD’s
UNFAILING LOVE
surrounds
those who
TRUST in Him.

REJOICE and SING
all who are upright in heart !

BE GLAD
because of what
the LORD has done !

A beautiful testimony of the love of a father.  I thought this song and Mr. Bell’s words fit perfectly with our prayer from Psalm 32 today.

Daily Bread:  Thoughts & Prayers
from the Psalms

~ Psalm 29 ~

“The LORD blesses His People with peace.”

Have you ever wondered what the Psalms must have sounded like being sung by the voices of His People, our people, so long ago?
A few days ago I came across a song that took these ancient words and brought them to life.  I think it is a perfect prayer we can sing together today.
It is offered (truly an offering) to us by Shelby Hughey (lyrics) and Elijah Ogden (music).
I found it while reading some of the most genuine thoughts on real life in Christ, by Sarah Sandel.   I highly recommend her blog (HERE) .  You’ll find her writing to be brave and true and inspiring.   Thank you Sarah, Shelby, and Elijah for letting me share !

Oh, Your voice like thunder cracks,
And oh, Your voice, like heavy rain beating on my back.
With a word the hills start shaking and the fire splits in two.
What is this? How is it the voice that thunder speaks to you

Rest my dear one, to My love run,
Lay these burdens down.
Surely you were made for more than this.
Pretty pictures, trophies centered
On your highest shelf come crashing down,
Come crashing down.

from the Book of Psalms

~  Psalm 22  ~

You LORD,
Are the Praise of Israel,
The HOLY ONE,
The God in whom our fathers
TRUSTED
and were
not DISAPPOINTED !

This is right and true.

WHY then are you so FAR ?
I cry out to you 
but you don’t 
ANSWER.

Have you forsaken me?

I am mocked and scorned
TROUBLE
is near.
My heart is melting away
and
My strength is dried up !

DELIVER my life !

But to You,
who brought me out of the womb,
I will DECLARE your name 
and I will PRAISE you 

BECAUSE

You have not DESPISED or DISDAINED
the suffering of the Afflicted One.
You did not hide Your face.
You heard.

May all of us who fear you,
PRAISE YOUR NAME 
TOGETHER !

For one day soon 
ALL the ENDS OF THE EARTH
will
REMEMBER 
and 
TURN to You.

They will 
PROCLAIM 
Your righteousness 
To a people yet unborn.

For
DOMINION 
belongs to the LORD !

For He has done it !
