Hear My Cry: Listen to My Prayer

February 15, 2022

Psalm 61 (KJV)

1 "{To the chief Musician upon Neginah, A Psalm of David.}  Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.

2 "From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

3 "For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.

4 "I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.

5 "For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name.

6 "Thou wilt prolong the king's life: and his years as many generations.

7 "He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him.

8 "So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.

Matthew Henry: Commentary on Psalms 61

"David, in this psalm, as in many others, begins with a sad heart, but concludes with an air of pleasantness-begins with prayers and tears, but ends with songs of praise. Thus the soul, by being lifted up to God, returns to the enjoyment of itself. It should seem David was driven out and banished when he penned this psalm, wether by Saul or Absalom is uncertain: some think by Absalom, because he calls himself "the king" (v. 6), but that refers to the King Messiah. David, in this psalm, resolves to persevere in his duty, encouraged thereto both by his experience an by his expectations."

Thank You, Father, for Your protection, Your provision, and for Your continued favor. In Jesus's name, Amen.

Blessings on the journey, and remember the best is yet to come.
