Psalm 61

In the midst of this week of prayer and fasting that we’re taking part in as a church, let these words of the psalmist David be an encouragement to you as you pray.

Psalm 61
To the Chief Musician. On a stringed instrument. A Psalm of David.

1  Hear my cry, O God;
Attend to my prayer.
2  From the end of the earth I will cry to You,
When my heart is overwhelmed;
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

3  For You have been a shelter for me,
A strong tower from the enemy.
4  I will abide in Your tabernacle forever;
I will trust in the shelter of Your wings.  Selah

5  For You, O God, have heard my vows;
You have given me the heritage of those who fear Your name.
6  You will prolong the king’s life,
His years as many generations.
7  He shall abide before God forever.
Oh, prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him!

8  So I will sing praise to Your name forever,
That I may daily perform my vows.
