Daily Psalm for 2/22/2022

Depart from me, all you workers of evil,
for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping.
The LORD has heard my plea;
the LORD accepts my prayer.
All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled;
they shall turn back and be put to shame in a moment. Psalms 6:8-10

The song “Waterloo” talks about the one event that breaks down our will. For David, it was Bathsheba. After Uriah was killed David was given a choice of his punishment and he chose that the destruction is upon himself and his family. Once the pristine image of his family was shattered, David spent the rest of his life dealing with one struggle after another beginning with the death of his son. When we ask the Lord G-d for forgiveness, the “bloodguilt” is atoned for meaning, we will not die a 2nd time. However, that does not stop the enemy of our soul from trying to torment us by reminding us of our failure(s).

Father,

Sin is a blight but it doesn’t present itself as such at first. The Devil uses clever wording to confuse us. For this reason, help me to carefully consider my choices and actions that I do not displease you. You give me full control of my life and my choices, You will never hold me under your thumb like the Devil does because you want me to feel free in Your Holy presence and not be like Adam and Eve or like David or Solomon. Holy Spirit my teacher, counselor, and friend may you never find just cause for removing yourself from my life, and may your teachings be my guiding principles. I pray for your hedge of protection about my family and families, friends, and nation. I pray especially for those enduring illnesses. I pray for the military, law enforcement, and EMT communities that you will be with every one of them and bring them safely home. I pray over our politicians that you will continue to shake them to their core with the message of the Ephod so that they fully understand who they serve. I pray for the city of Stacy, the state of Minnesota, and the USA may your Spirit fall fresh upon us. I pray for the truckers who carry supplies to our communities. I thank you for healing our land by rain that refreshes the land and the storms that shake the heart of mankind. I pray for those who need a special touch from you today. Finally, I pray that my words will always be an encouragement to all who read these words in Jesus’ name I pray. May your peace be upon my family, city, state, nation, and world. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer (Psalms 19:14).
