Psalm 6:6-10 – A Prayer for the Coming Glory of God
6 I am weary with my moaning; every night I flood my bed with tears; I drench my couch with my weeping. 7 My eye wastes away because of grief; it grows weak because of all my foes. 8 Depart from me, all you workers of evil, for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping. 9 The LORD has heard my plea; the LORD accepts my prayer. 10 All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled; they shall turn back and be put to shame in a moment.
For 21 days now, we have been praying through psalms and asking God to hear our prayer for our family, church, and community. Today we end our time together on these beautiful verses that give us reason to pause and process what God has been saying to us in these last three weeks. Instead of providing a prayer for you to pray, take some time to answer the following questions and write out your own prayer to God. After writing out your prayer, pray this prayer out loud for every member of your family, the ministries of the church that you participate in, and for our community.
1. What is one truth about the Gospel that you have learned more about over the past 21 days?
2. What is a characteristic of God that stood out to you in these verses over the past 21 days?
3. Based on these psalms, what would you want to see God do most in your family? In your church? In your community?
Now, write out your answers to the questions above and turn them into a prayer to God!
