Praying Through: Psalm 110 Conquerer

The Psalm

Psalm 110 (CSB)
A psalm of David.

1 This is the declaration of the LORD to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies your footstool.”

2 The LORD will extend your mighty scepter from Zion. Rule over your surrounding enemies.

3 Your people will volunteer on your day of battle. In holy splendor, from the womb of the dawn, the dew of your youth belongs to you.

4 The LORD has sworn an oath and will not take it back: “You are a priest forever according to the pattern of Melchizedek.”

5 The Lord is at your right hand; he will crush kings on the day of his anger.

6 He will judge the nations, heaping up corpses; he will crush leaders over the entire world.

7 He will drink from the brook by the road; therefore, he will lift up his head.

The Prayer


I was a long rejector

  • of your great gospel
  • a treason traitor
  • of your great rule
  • a magnificient hater
  • of your great love
  • a terrible sinner
  • of your great holiness.

But you have conquered

  • my greatest and only enemy
  • my own sin
  • and have put my sin to open shame
  • because you have taken my sin upon yourself
  • and exposed yourself to open shame
  • for my sake
  • for my sake
  • you died
  • so I might live to you forever.

Be glorified

  • in my life
  • today.
