Praying Through: Psalm 77 Confidence

The Psalm

Psalm 77 (CSB)
For the choir director: according to Jeduthun. Of Asaph. A psalm.

1 I cry aloud to God, aloud to God, and he will hear me.

2 I sought the Lord in my day of trouble. My hands were continually lifted up all night long; I refused to be comforted.

3 I think of God; I groan; I meditate; my spirit becomes weak. Selah

4 You have kept me from closing my eyes; I am troubled and cannot speak.

5 I consider days of old, years long past.

6 At night I remember my music; I meditate in my heart, and my spirit ponders.

7 “Will the Lord reject forever and never again show favor?

8 Has his faithful love ceased forever? Is his promise at an end for all generations?

9 Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has he in anger withheld his compassion?” Selah

10 So I say, “I am grieved that the right hand of the Most High has changed.”

11 I will remember the LORD’s works; yes, I will remember your ancient wonders.

12 I will reflect on all you have done and meditate on your actions.

13 God, your way is holy. What god is great like God?

14 You are the God who works wonders; you revealed your strength among the peoples.

15 With power you redeemed your people, the descendants of Jacob and Joseph. Selah

16 The water saw you, God. The water saw you; it trembled. Even the depths shook.

17 The clouds poured down water. The storm clouds thundered; your arrows flashed back and forth.

18 The sound of your thunder was in the whirlwind; lightning lit up the world. The earth shook and quaked.

19 Your way went through the sea and your path through the vast water, but your footprints were unseen.

20 You led your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
