Psalm 61.

We’re reading through, and with intentionality, praying through the Psalms during this school year. There are 150 Psalms, divided into 180 different readings. See this post for more info.

The audio file below is the entire episode for today. The text below is today’s prayer. I’m reading the Contemporary English Version of the Text, copyright 1995, by the American Bible Society.

God. Abba. Father.

Hear our prayer today. Some days we feel hopeless, our heart is weak, and we are down for the count. It can be an effort to get out bed. So, we cry out to you from a place of weariness.  Today we ask you to lead us to a safe place. A spot that is high and away from the noise of the day-to-day busyness. A spot where we can rest in a place of solitude and quiet, where we can be ourselves and just breathe, with no expectations or demands.

This is the place where we feel your love the most. This is the place in which we were born to dwell. This is the place where we come alive. It is here, Father, in your arms where we are blessed. This is our inheritance.

So, we worship you today great King! Please allow us to live long in this land so we might sing your praises, while we dwell here, and while we live with you forever. To you be the glory, oh God!

In Jesus name,
