Prayer from the Psalms

Today I would like to share a Psalm that really spoke to me. This Psalm is my prayer. I encourage y’all to stop for a minute and pray this Psalm with me. All praise and glory to God!

Psalm 30 (With added emphasis)

1
I will exalt you, Lord,
for you lifted me out of the depths
and did not let my enemies gloat over me.
2
Lord my God, I called to you for help,
and you healed me.
3
You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead;
you spared me from going down to the pit.
4
Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people;
praise his holy name.
5
For his anger lasts only a moment,
but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may stay for the night,
but rejoicing comes in the morning.
6
When I felt secure, I said,
“I will NEVER be shaken.”
7
Lord, when you favored me,
you made my royal mountain stand firm;
but when you hid your face,
I was dismayed.
8
To you, Lord, I called;
to the Lord I cried for mercy:
9
“What is gained if I am silenced,
if I go down to the pit?
Will the dust praise you?
Will it proclaim your faithfulness?
10
Hear, Lord, and be merciful to me;
Lord, be my help.”
11
You turned my wailing into dancing;
you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
12
that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.
Lord my God, I will praise you forever.

AMEN.
