Scripture

Psalms 70-71

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Psalm 70: What does David ask of God? What should those who seek God do?

Psalm 71: What does the psalmist declare he will do as life goes on (14,17-18)? Why (16,19,23)?

Application

Do I go to God first when I am in need? Do I rejoice in Him and praise Him? Do I offer God the praise that is rightfully His? Do I continue to do so more and more as I go through life?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father in Heaven, When I am in need and facing opposition and persecution, may i always seek Your help first, rather than trying to handle things myself. I join with David in praying that all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; let those who love Your salvation continually say, “God is great!” You are my hope, Lord GOD, my confidence from my youth. I have leaned on You from birth; You took me from my mother’s womb. My praise is always about You. My mouth is full of praise and honor to You all day long. I will hope continually and will praise You more and more. My mouth will tell about Your righteousness and Your salvation all day long, though I cannot sum them up. I come because of the mighty acts of the Lord GOD; I will proclaim Your righteousness, Yours alone. God, You have taught me from my youth, and I still proclaim Your wonderful works. Even when I am old and gray, God, I will proclaim Your power to another generation, Your strength to all who are to come. Your righteousness reaches heaven, God, You who have done great things; God, who is like You? I will praise You for Your faithfulness, my God; I will sing to You, Holy One of Israel. My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to You, because You have redeemed me. Therefore, my tongue will proclaim Your righteousness all day long. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
