What to Pray When the Year is not Easy on the Resolutions!
Pray this prayer and make it your song just as David did!
4:1 For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A psalm of David.
|Praying for Self||Praying for Friends||Praying for Foes|
|1b. Answer me when I call to you, O my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; be merciful to me and hear my prayer.
3 Know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself; the LORD will hear when I call to him.
7 You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound.
8 I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
6 Many are asking, “Who can show us any good?” Let the light of your face shine upon us, O LORD.
|2 How long, O men, will you turn my glory into shame? How long will you love delusions and seek false gods? <Selah>
4 In your anger do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent. <Selah>
5 Offer right sacrifices and trust in the LORD.
