Scripture

Psalm 64

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What does David ask of God? What is his motive for this request (9-10)?

Application

Do I trust in God for my protection and safety? Do I ask Him to work for my own convenience or for His glory?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father in Heaven, I ask that You would keep me safe and protect and shield me from evildoers. I leave the battle in Your Almighty hands. I ask this, not just so that I will have relief and safety, but so that everyone will fear and will tell about Your work, for they will understand what You have done. May I ever rejoice in You, LORD, and take refuge in You and offer praise. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
