Prayer for God’s intervention

Troubled times now, troubled times in Bible days…. This prayer from God’s Word can be prayed appropriately now and any time we place our praise, trust, and concerns before the Lord. Psalm 71:1-12 paraphrased into everyday English I put my trust in You, O Lord. Help me never to be confused about that. Rescue me. Free me for You do what’s right. Stay inclined to listen to me and deliver me. Be to me a Rock where I can safely hide. Give Your command to rescue me, for You are my high ridge and fortress. Rescue me, my God, from the power of evil, from the clutches of cruel oppressors. O Lord, my only hope is in You. From childhood I have trusted You, Lord. Yes, from the moment of my birth and even in my mother’s womb, You have tended me. No wonder I’m always praising You. No wonder my life provides an example to many, because You have been my strength and protection. No wonder I daily declare Your praise and glory! Now that I’m old

Praying Psalm 70 in turbulent times

During his lifetime, King David often found himself surrounded by hate and ill will. In physical, mental, and spiritual danger – as we are today – this beloved man of faith turned to God, seeking protection, deliverance, and peace.  In the midst of his own troubles, however, David prayed for others who sought God’s help. Like Christ, King David prayed for us. Psalm 70 – prayer of David from King James Version  Make haste, O God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O Lord. Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt. Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha. Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified. But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying. F
