Praying Through: Psalm 32:6

The Psalm

Psalm 32:6 (CSB) Therefore let everyone who is faithful pray to you immediately. When great floodwaters come, they will not reach him.

The Prayer

God of my little belief

Oh how many times, O Lord,

  • have I whispered nothings
  • gave half-hearted thanks
  • prayed and did not believe
  • spoke and did not think it was real.

When I was an ungodly husband

  • and my weak non-prayers were unanswered
  • When I was a sinful subject
  • and any other king would ignore me
  • or worse yet
  • have me executed
  • for high treason?

But that is not you.

You are the King who sends his heralds

  • to tell the nations
  • about the good news
  • that the God of the universe
  • relentlessly
  • passionately
  • persistently
  • wonderfully
  • goes after us.
  • Even those of us
  • who are the most vile
  • most wicked
  • the chief of sinners
  • like me.

You rescued me

  • you called on me
  • I call on you.
  • You turn your ear to me
  • because I am your son
  • because of Your Son
  • because of Your Spirit within me
  • becasue you love me.

Be exalted, O Lord. Be exalted higher and higher.
