Praying Through: Psalm 31:6-8

The Psalm

Psalm 31:6–8 (CSB)
6 I hate those who are devoted to worthless idols, but I trust in the LORD.

7 I will rejoice and be glad in your faithful love because you have seen my affliction. You know the troubles of my soul

8 and have not handed me over to the enemy. You have set my feet in a spacious place.

The Prayer

Lover of my soul

I cry and grieve for those

  • who do not know you.
  • I pray that their hearts
  • would be turned towards you.

You have rescued me countless times.

  • And all I have ever found
  • was your loving grace.

Lord, you did not abandon me

  • Not to hell
  • Not to sin
  • Not to this world
  • Not to Satan
  • Not to demons
  • Not to death

You rescued me

  • with your compassion.
  • You restored my soul
  • for the sake of your Son.
  • You gave me life
  • by the power of your Spirit. I will love you
  • for all of my days.
