daily reading 11.1 (Psalm 144:9-15)

5-days-a-week through the Psalms in 2018

First pray to God, like David:

Will you sit aloof and silent while the nations rage and fight?
Will you tolerate injustice, God whose ways are truth and light?
Will your mercy not deliver those who turn to you in prayer?
Will there not be new songs written songs to thank you for you care?

When at last the conflict eases, when these days of battle end,
May we share with all the nations the abundant gifts you send,
Then shall all our children flourish; then our homes will be secured;
But our greatest joy and honor will be knowing you, our Lord. Amen.

Psalm 144:9-15

      • God, I will sing a new song to you; I will play on a ten-stringed harp for you–
        10 the one who gives victory to kings, who frees his servant David from the deadly sword.
      • 11 Set me free and rescue me from foreigners whose mouths speak lies, whose right hands are deceptive.
      • 12 Then our sons will be like plants nurtured in their youth, our daughters, like corner pillars that are carved in the palace style. 13 Our storehouses will be full, supplying all kinds of produce; our flocks will increase by thousands and tens of thousands in our open fields. 14 Our cattle will be well fed. There will be no breach in the walls, no going into captivity, and no cry of lament in our public squares.
      • 15 Happy are the people with such blessings. Happy are the people whose God is the LORD.

For yourself pray:

  • For freedom from the deceptive

Other people to pray for:

  • For young people making school decisions for next year
