praying today's psalm: psa 54

Save me, O God, by your name;
Vindicate me by your might.
Hear my prayer, O God;
Listen to the words of my mouth.
Strangers are attacking me;
Ruthless men seek my life—
Men without regard for God.

Surely God is my help;
The Lord is the one who sustains me.
Let evil recoil on those who slander me;
In your faithfulness destroy them.
I will sacrifice a freewill offering to you;
I will praise your name, O LORD,
For it is good.
For he has delivered me from all my troubles,
And my eyes have looked in triumph on my foes.

(Psa 54, NIV)

Father, sometimes I do not know how to pray these Psalms because I do not live with the same kind of threats. Nevertheless, you do sustain me through trial. I do beg you that you will hear my prayers. But can I give you praise in my suffering? Lord, I pray that I would. Amen Amen
