Praying the Psalms- Psalm 65-

 9.1.11

Psalm 65

O God of Our Salvation
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. A Song.
Praise is due to you, O God, in Zion,
and to you shall vows be performed.


O you who hear prayer,
to you shall all flesh come.


When iniquities prevail against me,
you atone for our transgressions.


Blessed is the one you choose and bring near,
to dwell in your courts!


We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house,
the holiness of your temple!


By awesome deeds you answer us with righteousness,
O God of our salvation,
the hope of all the ends of the earth
   and of the farthest seas;
the one who by his strength established the mountains,
being girded with might;
who stills the roaring of the seas,
the roaring of their waves,
the tumult of the peoples,
so that those who dwell at the ends of the earth are in awe at your signs.

You make the going out of the morning and the evening to shout for joy.
You visit the earth and water it;
you greatly enrich it;
the river of God is full of water;
you provide their grain,
for so you have prepared it.
You water its furrows abundantly,
settling its ridges,
softening it with showers,
and blessing its growth.


You crown the year with your bounty;
your wagon tracks overflow with abundance.
The pastures of the wilderness overflow,
the hills gird themselves with joy,
the meadows clothe themselves with flocks,
the valleys deck themselves with grain,
they shout and sing together for joy.


**************
Lord, I praise You today. You alone are worthy to be praised!

Lord, I am so grateful because "You hear my prayer"

These four words are so powerful,

and full of meaning.

This statement, should be enough for me

to come to you in prayer day and night,

this statement should encourage me to

pray without ceasing.

Thank you, O LORD, because it pleases You

to hear the prayer of your saints.

LORD, thank you, thank you because you not only hear my prayer,
but you atone for my transgressions which are many.

Father, I am blessed indeed; 

and the greatest blessing

that you have bestowed upon me is that You have called me to dwell in your courts!

You have chosen me and You have brought me near to You,
by bringing me near the Cross.

O, yes, yes Father, let me satisfied with the goodness of your house,

the holiness of your temple,

the sweetness of each word I read on my Bible.

Lord, forgive me when in my foolishness, 

I am deceived and seek satisfaction everywhere else.

Lord, we pray small prayers, and yet You answer us with awesome deeds

with righteousness, 

O God of our Salvation,

You alone are my HOPE;

You alone are my strength.You who has established the mountains,

has established my life on the Rock of Ages.

I shall not be moved, that is my HOPE.

Lord, I am in awe at your deeds, your signs;

Your hand is always orchestrating our lives according to your perfect will. 

Father when a storm comes against me, against my beloved ones, against your church;

help us remember that YOU, You alone has the power to still the roaring seas,

the roaring of the waves, 

the tumult of peoples.

Thank you, for each morning and night,
for rhythms in our lives;

for rain and snow,

and good soil to plant,

and food to eat.

You crown our years, our days, our minutes with your bounty;

you have filled my home with food for us and others; 

You have filled my home with food for the soul too;

good books and Bibles, and beautiful music;

all fill our rooms.

You have rescued us from from the spiritual famine in which we lived

so many years.


I raise my voice today with all the saints whom you have called

to draw near you and we praise Your Name, O Mighty God!

Amen

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
