Gaining comfort and guidance

A Prayer

Let the peace

with comfort and inspiration.

A Prayer inspired by


Lord of my Life,

You are worthy of my awe and my respect.

You are my Shepherd. You are my safety and security.

You protect me and you guide me as I daily walk with you.

You have rescued me many times.

Some of them were times when you rescued me without me realizing that I was in danger.

Father, rescue me again.

Lord, look down on all my problems with great compassion.

See my problems through my eyes and extend mercy to me.

I call out to you that you would intervene in the works of unrepentant men against me.

Save me from their plans and strategies.

I praise you that you set the righteous on the rock of Jesus.

Father God, you know that my heart is set on pleasing you. Help me to continue to cooperate in your process of purifying me.

Thank you, Lord, that you welcome all my prayers, and that you allow me to pour out - even my complaints - to you.

And thank you that you stir up in me an attitude of thankfulness.

Daily, I will speak out my thankfulness to you and my praises to you.

I pray this prayer in the Comforting name of Jesus and in the Miraculous name of Jesus,

A Song inspired by


Hebrew Translation

In the first two songs,

they chose "pour out my complaints"

as a translation for the Hebrew word "ragaz".

That is not the best translation.

Yet I can see that when you are angry, you have complaints -

and the Bible tells us that God wants us to be open with him.

So I can see how that could fit in with the psalm.

I used that concept in my prayer.

Below is more information

about the Hebrew word


Psalm 4:1 - The King James Version

translates the Hebrew word "ragaz"


"Stand in awe" and sin not -

  yet the NKJV translates it as "Be angry" and sin not.

The AMP translates it as Tremble [with anger or fear], and do not sin.

The last song used the AMP version and chose TREMBLE.
