Praying with Psalm 70
Updated: Oct 17, 2021
“But I am poor and needy, God make haste to me!” -Psalm 70 Adonai Elohim, have I chosen my lungs? Are these hands of my own design, these feet of my own making? Have I ever given myself sight, or created my ears for hearing? Have I held the atmosphere in its place that I may continue to breathe and receive these vibrations dancing across the air that I may hear? Do I keep the sun burning, plants growing, food flowing from table to body? Am I able to say good morning and good night without Your goodness? Am I strong enough to say I love you day in and day out without You loving me? Am I strong enough to love and be love in spite of all my flaws, my selfish life, my fears, my anxieties, my ignorance, and every lie the enemy has echoed or told my soul? O God I am poor and impoverished without You! “Make haste, O God, to deliver me! O Lord make haste to help me!” Amen.
