Psalm 5: Hear My Cry for Help, Lord
“Listen to my words, Lord,
consider my lament.
Hear my cry for help,
my King and my God,
for to You I pray.
In the morning, Lord, You hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before You
and wait expectantly.
For You are not a God Who is pleased with wickedness;
with You, evil people are not welcome.
The arrogant cannot stand
in Your presence.
You hate all who do wrong;
you destroy those who tell lies.
The bloodthirsty and deceitful
You, Lord, detest.
But I, by Your great love,
can come into Your house;
in reverence I bow down
toward Your Holy temple.
King David knew how to pray. He came before the throne of Grace with extreme reverence and humble confidence. He laid his requests before God and then waited expectantly on Him. Today, God is waiting for us to do the same.
As you meditate on this psalm, humbly get on your knees and tell Him how much you love Him, all that you need, and then believe Him for it.
