A Psalm and A Prayer
Psalm 109

L.G. Parkhurst, Jr.
Teaching the Truth in Love

Psalm 109

Leader:  Do not be silent, O God of my praise. For wicked and deceitful mouths are opened against me, speaking against me with lying tongues.

People: They beset me with words of hate, and attack me without cause. In return for my love they accuse me, even while I pray for them.

Leader: So they reward me evil for good, and hatred for my love.

People: But you, O Lord my Lord, act on my behalf for your name’s sake. Because your steadfast love is good, deliver me.

Leader:  Help me, O Lord my God! Save me according to your steadfast love.

People: With my mouth I will give great thanks to the Lord; I will praise him in the midst of the throng.

Heavenly Father, from time to time, we have suffered the type of rejection that the Psalmist felt when he wrote this Psalm. We know that Your only Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, experienced the same rejection when He came to Earth to demonstrate Your love and truth. O Father, You honored Your Son and affirmed His work when You raised Him from the dead. And we know that You will bestow Your steadfast love upon us, and deliver us from evil, because we trust in the One who taught us pray: “Our Father. . .”
