Journey through the Psalms: Post 1: Psalm 19:13‘’

And Keep me from my secret, selfish sins;
May they never rule over me!

A journey through the Psalms: Post 2: Psalm 22:11-14; 16; 21
I pray for hope restored, strength and a full recovery for all my friends who are battling cancer (the extract from the Psalm and the links to the songs are specially for you)
“ … So don’t’ leave me now, stay close to me!
For trouble is all around me
And there’s no one else to help me.
I’m surrounded by many violent foes;
Mighty forces of evil are swirling around me
That want to break me to bits and destroy me…
They’re like ravenous, roaring lions tearing their prey.
Now, I’m completely exhausted, I’m spent.
Every joint of my body has been pulled apart.
My courage has vanished and
My inward parts have melted away.
I’m so thirsty and parched – dry as a bone.
… Save me from all the power of the enemy;
From this roaring lion raging against me
And the power of this dark horde …”
Psalm 22:11-14; 16; 21 Passion translation
The first two songs express feelings, emotions, worries and hope. The last song is about hope and trust in God and healing.

For he will never disappoint you! …”
