Praying the Psalms with Luther

READ: Ezekiel 41 Psalm 123 Hebrews 10:19-31

The 123rd Psalm is a Psalm of prayer against the arrogant and the proud who despise and scorn God’s Word and His little ones. Not only the nations considered the God and worship of the children of Israel to be a work of foolishness, yes, they even thought it to be error and sedition. Even among the Israelites themselves, the worship of idols and false gods, the false teachers with their multitudes, also arrogantly and securely despised and scorned the little land and the true teaching, as Psalm 12 and 14 lament. What a sad time in Israel – how sad that is repeated in every generation.

PRAY: Lord Jesus, seated at the right hand of Your Father, and Lord of heaven and earth, restrain the enemies of Your Church, and uphold Your faithful followers. Let not the scorn of the world and the mockery of he proud cause us to fall away from You, but grant us courage to confess Your name unto our end, and cause the wicked to see Your power, and the upright to see Your truth. Amen.
