Strength and Encouragement
you feel overwhelmed.
We've all been in overwhelming situations.
when we need
God's Overcoming Strength!
I am using
The Living Bible translation -
and I am using selected verses for the prayer.
Save me, O my God.
The floods have risen.
Deeper and deeper
I sink in the mire,
the waters rise around me.
But I keep right on praying to you, Lord.
For now is the time -
you are bending down to hear!
You are ready
with a plentiful supply of love and kindness.
Now answer my prayer and rescue me
as you promised.
Pull me out of this mire.
Don't let me sink in.
Rescue me from those who hate me,
these deep waters I am in.
O Jehovah, answer my prayers,
for your lovingkindness is wonderful;
your mercy is so plentiful,
so tender and so kind.
Don't hide from me,
for I am in deep trouble.
Come and save me.
Come, Lord, and rescue me.
Ransom me from all my enemies.
Their contempt has broken my heart;
my spirit is heavy within me.
(v 20 a)
But rescue me, O God,
from my poverty and pain.
Then I will praise God with my singing!
My thanks will be his praise.
The humble shall see
their God at work for them.
No wonder they will be glad!
All who seek for God shall live in joy!
For Jehovah hears
the cries of his needy ones,
and does not look the other way.
( v 32-33)
Praise him all heaven and earth!
Praise him, all the seas and everything in them!
( v 34)
Consider the words:
those who hate me (verse 14).... my enemies (verse 18) ....
Those references are frequently defined as
the devil and our demonic spiritual enemies
and not necessarily human people.
