Praying Some Favorite Verses in Psalms

 I’ve been praying through the Psalms for over 40 years now. So inevitably there have been some verses in the Psalms that I’ve personally found particularly powerful for prayer. I come back to them over and over, which means eventually I had them memorized and easily accessible to me anywhere in whatever circumstance. That’s how we know Jesus meditated on and prayed the Psalms over the years of his life -- by the way he so quickly quoted from them (more than from any other Old Testament book) and prayed them at key times in his life (the last words of Jesus on the cross were prayers from the Psalms, from 22:1 and 31:5). In this podcast episode, I read some of my favorite, go-to verses from the Psalms that I pray more often than any other passage of Scripture. They have been powerfully used by God in my own life and at key times in my life. Let me lead you in prayer through them as well in this episode. Psalm 16:1–2 ESV Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge. I say to the LORD, “You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you.” Psalm 16:11 ESV You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 118:1 ESV Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever! Psalm 27:1 ESV The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:4 ESV One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in his temple. Psalm 27:13–14 ESV I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living! Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the LORD! Psalm 31:14–15 ESV But I trust in you, O LORD; I say, “You are my God.” My times are in your hand; Follow Dave Cover on Twitter @davecover.  Like this content?
