Psalm 61: a commitment to God
The psalmist always robs us of our daily situations and struggles that we face and in Psalm 61 we see the cry and prayer to God so that He will always remain by our side, a praise of exaltation and an affirmation that the Lord is benign and His faithfulness is forever.
The strong words of confidence of Psalm 61
Read the psalm with faith:
1 Hear my cry, O God;
listen to my prayer.
2 From the ends of the earth I call to you,
I call as my heart grows faint;
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For you have been my refuge,
a strong tower against the foe.
4 I long to dwell in your tent forever
and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.
5 For you, God, have heard my vows;
you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
6 Increase the days of the king’s life,
his years for many generations.
7 May he be enthroned in God’s presence forever;
appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.
8 Then I will ever sing in praise of your name
and fulfill my vows day after day.
