Praying Through: Psalm 18:46–50

The Psalm

Psalm 18:46–50 (CSB)
46 The LORD lives—blessed be my rock! The God of my salvation is exalted.

47 God—he grants me vengeance and subdues peoples under me.

48 He frees me from my enemies. You exalt me above my adversaries; you rescue me from violent men.

49 Therefore I will give thanks to you among the nations, LORD; I will sing praises about your name.

50 He gives great victories to his king; he shows loyalty to his anointed, to David and his descendants forever.

The Prayer

I was once so far from you. I was once lost. I was once your sworn enemy. Instead of casting me out, you sought me out. Instead of leaving me lost, you found me. Instead of leaving me to die, you found me and gave me life. Instead being at war with me, you call me friend.

You are my only hope. You are my life. You are my salvation. You alone hold the words of eternal life.

Now my enemies are not whom I see but whom I do not see.  And you have handled my enemies. You slew them and you conquered them—once and for all.

You are the champion. You are the conqueror.

Now I walk firmly in your freedom.

Now I am free to see you, hear you, be with you, talk with you, love you and worship you all the days of my life.

All of this was made possible from your sovereign grace by the power of Your Spirit through Your Son whom poured his life out for us.

My God, I love you. My Spirit, I love you. My Lord, I love you.
