Praying through the Psalms: Psalm 70

prayingpsalmsimagePsalm 70

God, deliver me.
Hurry to help me, Lord!

Let those who seek my life
be disgraced and confounded;
let those who wish me harm
be driven back and humiliated.
Let those who say, “Aha, aha!”
retreat because of their shame.

Let all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You;
let those who love Your salvation
continually say, “God is great!”
I am afflicted and needy;
hurry to me, God.
You are my help and my deliverer;
Lord, do not delay.

Read Psalm 70 aloud.

What seems to get in the way, things that distract you or get you “stuck” as you read through the psalm?

What is God highlighting for you to focus upon?

Read through Psalm 70 again, this time, pausing to yield to God, praising who He is and how He provides and giving Him everything that might be holding you back in faith.
