Psalm 144 reimagined

A Psalm of David

  1. The Lord is completely reliable and trustworthy.  He / she gives me the right words to say and enables me to exert my influence.  
  2. He / she cares about how well I do and steers me through challenging interactions.  He / she listens to my frustrations and gives me support when I fail.  With his / her guidance my advice wins the day.
  1. Why do you pay attention to people, Lord?  Why do you bother with them – flawed as they are?
  2. Their lives are held by a thin thread and are over in a flash.
  1. Lord, you could hide away in the comfort of your own place, but I beg you, tear open your door and show yourself.  Make an entrance that captures everyone’s attention.
  2. Shine your light where it is not wanted so injustice and hatred retreat.  Confuse those who perpetrate them with the strength of your opposition.
  3. Come from your home and draw alongside me.  Lift me out of my troubles and protect me from those who are attacking me.  
  4. Your presence will challenge those who claim to say what is right but twist the truth to their own ends.
  1. My heart is full of gratitude because of your love for me.  I will sing, shout and whisper new words of love to you, my Creator.
  2. You turn my failings into new opportunities to work for you.  You brought me through when all hope was lost.
  3. Protect me from those who are attacking me.  Your presence will challenge those who claim to say what is right but twist the truth to their own ends.
  1. May our children learn all they can whilst their minds are still developing. May they gain experience, which helps them to lead and serve with humility.  
  2. May we have all that we need to live and to provide for the needs of others.
  3. May our work be fulfilling and successful.  May we live in your presence, free from physical attack, security fears and anxieties for the future.
  4. Those for whom the Lord cares will be thrilled with all that he / she does.  Those who want to follow the Lord, their Creator, above all else, will be delighted.
