Psalm 141 Three Prayers for Your Saturday

Psalm 141

Three prayers for today.

  1. A Prayer for My Mouth

Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth, keep watch over the door of my lips (v 3).

  1. A Prayer for My Heart

Do not let my heart incline to any evil, to busy myself with wicked deeds in company with evil men (v 4).

  1. A Prayer for My Eyes

But my eyes are toward you, O God, my Lord (v 8 ).

Psalm 140 Three Promises

Psalm 140

David addressed two types of harm in this psalm.

👉 verbal attacks (v 3)
👉 physical attacks (v 4)

And he asked for protection from both. The enemy had violent hands and a sharp tongue. Just another reminder that words cause wounds.

We also have three beautiful promises.

  1. The Lord will maintain the cause of the afflicted (v 12).
  2. The Lord will execute justice for the needy (v 12).
  3. The upright shall dwell in the presence of the Lord (v 13).

Psalm 139 A Love That Won’t Leave

Psalm 139

I love this psalm so much. Just listen to the things David knew to be true of God.

• You have searched me (v 1).
• You have known me (v 1).
• You know my thoughts (v 2).
• You know my path (v 3).
• You know my words (v 4).
• You know where I am at all times (v 7-12).
• You created me with intentionality and you know me intimately (v 13-16).

And, then, my favorite – knowing me like you do, Lord – seeing where I am, Lord…

• You will never abandon me (v 18).

The Lord is faithful and constant. His love doesn’t come and go and neither does his presence. When others walk away – he does not. When the world gives you the cold shoulder – he says, “Come to me.”

Psalm 138 What am I to do on hard days?

Psalm 138

What are we to do when the world seems out of control? When people hurt us? When disappointment comes?

Our lives should still be marked by:

• whole hearted gratitude (v 1)
• public praise (v 1)
• humility and adoration (v 2)
• a love for his name and word (v 2)

Why? Because:

• God still answers (v 3)
• God strengthens us (v 3)
• God gazes upon the lowly (v 6)
• God preserves us (v 7)
• God defends & delivers (v 7)
• God will fulfill his purposes for us (v 8)
• God’s love is forever (v 8)
• we are the work of his hands (v 8)

Psalm 137 Far From Home

Psalm 137

Babylon – the place of exile

Zion – the ultimate destination

Jerusalem – a reminder of the covenant between God and his people

The people are far from home. They long for the promised land. And they are refusing to forget that they belong to the Lord.

Lord, help us to remember you (v 5) and to hold you as our highest joy (v 6) even while living far from home (v 1).
