Psalm 119:81-88 (Kaph)

My soul longs for your salvation;
I hope in your word.
My eyes long for your promise;
I ask. “When will you comfort me?”
For I have become like a wineskin in the smoke,
yet I have not forgotten your statutes.
How long must your servant endure?
When will you judge those who persecute me?
The insolent have dug pitfalls for me;
they do not live according to your law.
All the commandments are sure;
they persecute me with falsehood; help me!
They have almost made an end of me on earth.
but I may keep the testimonies of your mouth. (ESV)


Listen

16 Thus says the Lord:
“Stand by the roads, and look,
and ask for the ancient paths,
where the good way is; and walk in it,
and find rest for your souls.
But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’ (ESV)


Listen

19 My brothers, if anyone among you wanders from the truth and someone brings him back, 20 let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins. (ESV)


Listen

My soul longs, yes, faints
for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and flesh sing for joy
to the living God. (ESV)


Listen

11 My eyes are spent with weeping;
my stomach churns;
my bile is poured out to the ground
because of the destruction of the daughter of my people,
because infants and babies faint
in the streets of the city. (ESV)


Listen

I am weary with my crying out;
my throat is parched.
My eyes grow dim
with waiting for my God. (ESV)


Listen

28 I go about darkened, but not by the sun;
I stand up in the assembly and cry for help. (ESV)


Listen

26 Help me, O Lord my God!
Save me according to your steadfast love!
27 Let them know that this is your hand;
you, O Lord, have done it! (ESV)


Listen

51:1 Have mercy on me, [1] O God,
according to your steadfast love;
according to your abundant mercy
blot out my transgressions. (ESV)

Footnotes

[1] 51:1 Or Be gracious to me


Listen

Why should I fear in times of trouble,
when the iniquity of those who cheat me surrounds me,
those who trust in their wealth
and boast of the abundance of their riches?
Truly no man can ransom another,
or give to God the price of his life,
for the ransom of their life is costly
and can never suffice, (ESV)


Listen

We have thought on your steadfast love, O God,
in the midst of your temple.
10 As your name, O God,
so your praise reaches to the ends of the earth.
Your right hand is filled with righteousness. (ESV)


Listen

Count it all joy, my brothers, [1] when you meet trials of various kinds, (ESV)

Footnotes

[1] 1:2 Or brothers and sisters. The plural Greek word adelphoi (translated “brothers”) refers to siblings in a family. In New Testament usage, depending on the context, adelphoi may refer either to men or to both men and women who are siblings (brothers and sisters) in God’s family, the church; also verses 16, 19


Listen

88 In your steadfast love give me life,
that I may keep the testimonies of your mouth. (ESV)

On Wednesday night (Nov 12) I received an Urgent Prayer Request from friends with YWAM. I have copied it here for all to read and to add their prayers. THIS IS NOT A HOAX, THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING.

Greetings from the Philippines. we have just received this prayer request dated November 4…JC. Mila &JCir, ISOM, WOW &Youth Center…READ and Pray! …a letter from Chip & Sandy Wanner, Team Facilitators to YWAM frontline.

Dear beloved sponsors and friends of Good News India.

We have never seen anything like this. We knew that Orissa was the most resistant and hostile State in India as far as the Gospel is concerned. And we brushed off the continuous threats and harassment we faced as we went about His work. But none of our staff imagined that they would see this kind of carnage…And it seems to be under the radar of the Western Media…

Let me explain… A Militant Hindu priest and 4 of his attendants who were zealously going around the villages of Orissa and ‘reconverting’ people back to Hinduism, were gunned down by unknown assailants in Central Orissa last weekend.

Immediately the Christians were blamed. The cry rose up…”kill the Christians!” And the horror began… In the past 4 days, we have first hand witness to hundreds of churches being blown up or burned and many, many dozens of christian tribals have been slaughtered. For no other reason than they bear the name of Christ.
