Praying the Psalms with Luther

READ: Ezekiel 29 Psalm 121 Hebrews 3:12-29

The 121st Psalm is a Psalm of comfort in which the psalmist comforts us by His example, so that we may remain strong in faith and wait for God’s help and protection. Although it appears as though He sleeps or slumbers so that we are struck down the sun by day and the moon by night, yet it is not so, though we may think and feel it. For God watches and keeps us secure and does not let the sun strike us dead. This we will come to know for certain at last, though we can now only look forward to it.

PRAY: To You, O God, who has been our Father and Patron, do we lift up our eyes, knowing that from You alone can come our help and our salvation. Grant us a living trust in Your mercy and truth that hearts do not fear when we must pass through the fire or trials, or must wade through the waters of affliction, but always maintain a cheerful trust in Your help, through Jesus Christ. Amen.
