Psalm Saturday

Today I join with my friend Collette over at Jesus Loves Mums for Psalm Saturday. This is a time when we share a Psalm or portion of, that has spoken to us this week.

Why not join us in sharing your Psalm of the week?!

I am an avid writer in my Bible. I underline, date, make notes...when God really shows me something in His Word....I mark it. Over the years I have reread many things that have been underlined or marked in my Bible and many times, that same Scripture will speak to me again.
This week as I was reading in Psalms, I came across some verses that I had underlined. It's a prayer that David prayed and now, if you'll allow me, I'd like to pray a portion of it over my bloggy friends....

"In times of trouble, may the Lord answer your cry. May the name of the God of Jacob keep you safe from all harm. May He send you help from His sanctuary and strengthen you from Jerusalem. May He remember all your gifts and look favorably on your burnt offerings. May He grant your heart's desires and make all your plans succeed. May we shout for joy when we hear of your victory and raise a victory banner in the name of our God. May the Lord answer all your prayers." Psalm 20:1-5, NLT

I did almost the same thing as you today. I went through the Psalms and looked at ones that I had already highlighted. Today, I chose ones to go together as a prayer for myself, for God to help me "be nicer", radiate His joy and love, and to fulfill His purpose for me.
I love the prayer that you posted for us!
Thank you so much!
