Praying to Give Thanks | Prayer on Psalm 9
Psalm 9 has been a go-to psalm for me over the years because it reminds me of what I usually forget, and that’s to give thanks to Yahweh (Hebrew: “HE IS”). Giving thanks is when we recognize and give voice to our appreciation to God. Giving thanks to God is an act that wakes us a little bit more from the spell of self-sufficiency and autonomy, and reminds us of the real world we live in as created and controlled by God forever. Something important happens in our heart and soul when we express thanks to God. Let me help you do that in this episode on Psalm 9.
Psalm 9 ESV
...A Psalm of David.
1 I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds. 2 I will be glad and exult in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.
7 But the LORD sits enthroned forever; he has established his throne for justice,
8 and he judges the world with righteousness; he judges the peoples with uprightness.
9 The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
10 And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you.
11 Sing praises to the LORD, who sits enthroned in Zion! Tell among the peoples his deeds!
13 Be gracious to me, O LORD! See my affliction from those who hate me, O you who lift me up from the gates of death,
14 that I may recount all your praises, that in the gates of the daughter of Zion I may rejoice in your salvation.
