Praying Through: Psalm 27:11-12

The Psalm

Psalm 27 (CSB)

11 Because of my adversaries, show me your way, LORD, and lead me on a level path.

12 Do not give me over to the will of my foes, for false witnesses rise up against me, breathing violence.

The Prayer

O Lord

My enemies have been numerous,

  • and they attack me relentless. They do not rest when I am sleeping,
  • they even attack me in my dreams.

My scars run deep,

  • my bones break. But you, O Lord, are my healer and my restorer.
  • You sent your Son
  • to care for the sick and wounded.
  • Be attentive to my pain
  • and I will rejoice before you. You are the sweet love of my life forever.
