Praying Through: Psalm 22:25-31

The Psalm

Psalm 22:25–31 (CSB)
25 I will give praise in the great assembly because of you; I will fulfill my vows before those who fear you.

26 The humble will eat and be satisfied; those who seek the LORD will praise him. May your hearts live forever!

27 All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the LORD. All the families of the nations will bow down before you,

28 for kingship belongs to the LORD; he rules the nations.

29 All who prosper on earth will eat and bow down; all those who go down to the dust will kneel before him— even the one who cannot preserve his life.

30 Their descendants will serve him; the next generation will be told about the Lord.

31 They will come and declare his righteousness; to a people yet to be born they will declare what he has done.

The Prayer

My Worthy Lord,

Let my words

  • and my songs be a sweetness to your ears.

For I know

  • that you sit on the throne of our praises
  • because you are the God who alone saves.

I know

  • that not only are you willing
  • and able to save,
  • you
  • and you alone are the only one who is mighty to save.

So I praise you with all of my breath

  • and strength
  • and life.

And you have commissioned me

  • to go tell everyone
  • everywhere of everything
  • that you have done.
  • That if they turn to you,
  • you will save them,
  • even in their deepest,
  • darkest despair.

So I preach of you

  • and your great gospel.

Until every knee bows

  • and every tongue confess
  • that Jesus Christ is Lord,
  • my Rock,
  • and my Redeemer forever.
