A Prayer of David

There are times when you just don’t know how to pray, don’t know what to say or for whatever reason, don’t want to. A good way to kick start is to pray with written prayers that is bibical and applicable with your heart. One good example would be the prayer of David in Psalms.

Hear, O LORD, and answer me, for I am poor and needy.  Guard my life, for I am devoted to you. You are my God; save your servant who trusts in you.  Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I call to you all day long.  Bring joy to your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.

You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love to all who call to you.  Hear my prayer, O LORD; listen to my cry for mercy.  In the day of my trouble I will call to you, for you will answer me.  Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord; no deeds can compare with yours.  All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, O Lord; they will bring glory to your name.  For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God.

Teach me your way, O LORD, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.  I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever.  For great is your love toward me; you have delivered me from the depths of the grave.

The arrogant are attacking me, O God; a band of ruthless men seeks my life— men without regard for you.  But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.  Turn to me and have mercy on me; grant your strength to your servant and save the son of your maidservant.  Give me a sign of your goodness, that my enemies may see it and be put to shame, for you, O LORD, have helped me and comforted me.   Psalms 86

While it is a perfect sample prayer to model from, and desperate measures when you just cannot pray on your own, remember God see your heart, that is all He wants, a relationship.

Casting all your care upon him; for he cares for you.   1 Peter 5:7   Sometimes, you just don’t have to say anything, but to be in His Presence.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.   Matthew 11:28

    how do you go to the Father? I used to know what to do, but 4 years of traveling and being away from family and our home church I seem to have forgotten what to do. I believe in God, but that is like a piece of paper in my heart now. I need help.

    • King David says:

      Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father! So why are you asking me to show him to you? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words I speak are not my own, but my Father who lives in me does his work through me. Just believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me. Or at least believe because of the work you have seen me do. John 14:9-11
