Praying the Psalms: Wed, 01 Aug – Psalm 28 ~ Help us Lord !

Praying the Psalms

+ In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen!

Opening – (Northumbria Community)

One thing I have asked of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life; to behold the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple.

Praise to You, Lord Jesus Christ, King of endless glory.

Morning Reading: Psalm 28 (NLT)

I pray to you, O Lord, my rock. Do not turn a deaf ear to me. For if you are silent, I might as well give up and die. Listen to my prayer for mercy as I cry out to you for help, as I lift my hands toward your holy sanctuary.

Do not drag me away with the wicked—with those who do evil—those who speak friendly words to their neighbors while planning evil in their hearts.

  • Give them the punishment they so richly deserve!
  • Measure it out in proportion to their wickedness.
  • Pay them back for all their evil deeds!
  • Give them a taste of what they have done to others.

They care nothing for what the Lord has done or for what his hands have made. So he will tear them down, and they will never be rebuilt!

Praise the Lord! For he has heard my cry for mercy. The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.

The Lord gives his people strength. He is a safe fortress for his anointed king. Save your people! Bless Israel, your special possession. Lead them like a shepherd, and carry them in your arms forever.

Morning Prayer

O Lord our God: You are our Rock; we depend on you for strength and safety. Draw close to us now and hear our prayers –

+ Without you, Lord, we are hopeless and helpless
+ With you, Lord, we receive mercy and help

O Lord our God: You are Just and Good; we depend on you for deliverance and retribution.

+ Thank you for answering our prayers
+ Thank you for helping us when we need it
+ Thank you for assuring us of justice

O Lord our God: we rejoice in your saving strength and trust in your ultimate triumph – through your Son, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen.

Blessing – (Northumbrian Community)

May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you, wherever He may send you. May He guide you through the wilderness, protect you through the storm. May He bring you home rejoicing at the wonders He has shown you. May He bring you home rejoicing once again into our doors.
