Saturday Psalm & Praise – Unto Thee O Lord!

For the past few months I have really enjoyed getting to know and reacquaint myself with old friends and family members through my Facebook ! This past week a friend from school asked for prayer.  Even though I don’t know the circumstances she is going through right now or the reasons she needs prayer, I know God our Heavenly Father knows every detail!  I like to add scripture to my FBook wall and the other day this same friend said she enjoyed reading the scripture and told me that a certain scripture really touched her heart!  That passage is below from Psalm 25.

Psalm 25

1 Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul. 2 O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.3 Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.4 Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.5 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day. 6 Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old. 7 Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness’ sake, O LORD. 8 Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way. 9 The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way. 10 All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies. 11 For thy name’s sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great. 12 What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose. 13 His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth. 14 The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant. 15 Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.  16 Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.  17 The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses. 18 Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins. 19 Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred. 20 O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee. 21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.  22 Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.

I read this passage and prayed again for my friend and I believe God is doing a work in her, drawing her closer to Him.  The first couple verses remind me of a song I learned many years ago.  Which as you can tell comes straight from scripture.


Unto Thee O Lord

Unto Thee O Lord (Unto Thee O Lord), do I lift up my soul (do I lift up my soul)

Unto Thee O Lord (Unto Thee O Lord), do I lift up my soul (do I lift up my soul)

O my God (O my God) I trust in Thee (I trust in Thee)

I will not be ashamed,  don’t let my enemies triumph over me!

That is my prayer today ~ Whatever I do….in all things, Lord I do them Unto You, for your glory that you may be exalted!  My God I put my trust in YOU!  I am NOT ashamed and my enemies will NOT triumph over me!

That is my prayer for you friends, brothers and sisters in Christ that in all things you do…do them Unto the Lord, putting your faith, your trust in HIM, not being ashamed and letting God crush your enemies!

Blessings, grace and peace to you!
