Praying Through: Psalm 30:6-7

The Psalm

Psalm 30:6–7 (CSB) When I was secure, I said, “I will never be shaken.” LORD, when you showed your favor, you made me stand like a strong mountain; when you hid your face, I was terrified.

The Prayer

My God and Lord,

What blessings have you bestowed upon me,

  • my unshakable foundation,
  • my Solid Rock,
  • my cornerstone,
  • the one absolute love that will never be shaken.

But what is my response?

  • I despise you
  • I distrust you
  • I think you will not be there for me. And I turn to other gods,
  • and other comforts,
  • and wallow in my sins,
  • and let despair rest upon my soul But my beautiful Savior,
  • you are the Shepherd who rescues the sheep,
  • you are the Farmer who pulls the ox,
  • you are the Christ that saves his people from their sin. Once and for all times,
  • definitely,
  • completely,
  • perfectly. Blessed be your holy name forever.
