Praying Through: Psalm 30:1-3

The Psalm

Psalm 30:1–3 (CSB) I will exalt you, LORD, because you have lifted me up and have not allowed my enemies to triumph over me. LORD my God, I cried to you for help, and you healed me. LORD, you brought me up from Sheol; you spared me from among those going down to the Pit.

The Prayer

O LORD my God,

I sing praises to your name, for you are worthy and worthy to be praised.

I have cried for help, too many times to recall How many times have you responded? All of them plus one more.

I know I am with you, and because of that I am being healed by your loving grace My soul has been afflicted My heart has been scorched My body has been abused But you are my everlasting joy and the healer of all iniquity and sin.

For the sin that has affected me, you have picked me up set me on your Rock cleansed my wounds gave me a new heart with your desires and called me your own.

For all of my treacherous sins, you set your affections upon me you chased after me with your full Might and because you loved me so much you sent your Son to live for me to die in my place to resurrect so that I would be fully alive and then rose to glory All because you are glorious.

There is none like you.
