Praying Psalm 30
By Jennifer Day
This Psalm I began to pray, and God has kept bringing me back to it. I have changed some of the words to it to personalize it- but is based off of Psalm 30. It is a testament of what God has done for me.
God I praise you,
I worship you because you lifted me up when I was as low as I could go.
You didn’t let me enemies get their victory over me.
God I called to you for help and you heard me.
You healed me from the inside out.
God you saved me from death itself,
when it was staring me in the eye.
And you saved me from losing my life.
So I will sing praises to your name.
I will continue to Praise your Holy name every day of my life.
God you may be angry for a moment,
but your favor will always surround me.
And I may be suffering right now,
I may be hurt but I know that this too will pass.
That you will bring me out of it and I will be rejoicing.
God, you make me feel secure,
and I know that I will never be shaken because I trust in you.
God you have shown me favor,
you always surround me and you help me stand firm.
God I will call out to you and to you alone.
God do not turn away from me, because I need you.
Help me God to not be silent,
but to speak out in boldness and in confidence.
God I need your help!
Show me mercy, show me grace,
Hear my cry for help.
God You have turned my wailing into dancing
My sorrow into joy
My tears of sadness into tears of happiness
My fear into confidence
My timidness into boldness
My anger into love
My brokenness into wholeness
So I will not remain silent.
God I will worship you and sing your praises all the days of my life.
Lord you are my God.
