Praying the Psalms: Psalm 7

Psalm 7



The Spiritual Practice of Lectio Divina

Read the text (lectio) 
Meditate on the text (mediatio)
Pray the text (oratio) 
Live the text (contemplatio) 

Will you join Jenny and others each week as we share our prayers, meditations...our heart, as we Pray through the Psalms? Shall we gather to ponder and praise, ask and receive?

1-2: O LORD my God, in thee do I take refuge;
save me from all my pursuers, and deliver me,
lest like a lion they rend me,
dragging me away, with none to rescue.


You Oh Lord are my strength, my salvation, my saving grace.
It is by Your Name , Your Will alone...that I exist...that I am able to stand fast against the Tempter.
Sometimes I fall...but you are there...always with Your most Glorious Cross to lift me up.

You Oh Lord are my protective Shield, my just Judge.
You alone know the thoughts of my mind.
You alone read my heart.

17: I will give to the LORD the thanks due to his righteousness,
and I will sing praise to the name of the LORD, the Most High.


My words of praise, thanksgiving and love,
fall from my mouth to the ground as nothing.
I know not any words capable of giving the honor due you,
my most awesome loving Father.

I look to my Mother the Church to supply me adequate praise for you,
my God.

We adore you oh Christ and we bless you, 
because by your Holy Cross you have redeemed the world.

I love the "Stations" prayer. It is a strong reminder, by His holy cross He Did redeem the world.
