The Psalm

Psalm 48 (CSB)
A song. A psalm of the sons of Korah.

1 The LORD is great and highly praised in the city of our God. His holy mountain,

2 rising splendidly, is the joy of the whole earth. Mount Zion—the summit of Zaphon— is the city of the great King.

3 God is known as a stronghold in its citadels.

4 Look! The kings assembled; they advanced together.

5 They looked and froze with fear; they fled in terror.

6 Trembling seized them there, agony like that of a woman in labor,

7 as you wrecked the ships of Tarshish with the east wind.

8 Just as we heard, so we have seen in the city of the LORD of Armies, in the city of our God; God will establish it forever. Selah

9 God, within your temple, we contemplate your faithful love.

10 Like your name, God, so your praise reaches to the ends of the earth; your right hand is filled with justice.

11 Mount Zion is glad. Judah’s villages rejoice because of your judgments.

12 Go around Zion, encircle it; count its towers,

13 note its ramparts; tour its citadels so that you can tell a future generation:

14 “This God, our God forever and ever— he will always lead us.”

The Prayer

You Are My Dwelling
I have been surrounded
  by all iniquity
  temptation waits for me
  sin is drawing ever so closely.

The demons seek
  and wait for my moments of weakness
  which I am continuously frail
  surely I will be devoured.

Satan attempts one last time
  to destroy your son
  to crush me
  with the weight of my own sin
  surely I will be buried.

But you have appeared
  not just one time rescuer
  but the all-time destroyer of evil
  the everlasting protector
  the risen conquerer.

When I have fallen
  you have lifted my head
  when I am faithless
  you have been faithful
  when I am weak
  you are the Almighty God.

I will give you praise
  for all of my days
  because you alone
  are worthy of my praise.

King Jesus
