Praying the Psalms

Archive for January, 2012

Tehillim/Psalms 147.1

Hallelujah.

It is good to chant hymns to our G-d;

it is pleasant to sing glorious praise.

Tehillim/Psalms 147.1

***I love posting to this blog. Singing the Psalms is a powerful prayer and sustainer of one’s spirit. Even though there are few visitors to this site, it is special to me. I will, however, have to take a hiatus due to the mounting demands of graduate school. I will most probably not be back with any regularity till the latter part of April.  Keep praying and singing the Palms and if you like, check in on my primary blog (Inspired Vision) from time to time. I will continue posting there but on a very reduced schedule. Enjoy the remainder of winter and I will see you again in the spring. 🙂


Tehillim/Psalms 147.12-18

Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem!

Praise your God, O Zion!…

He gives snow like wool;

He scatters the frost like ashes.

He casts forth His ice as fragments,

Who can stand before His cold?

He sends forth His word and melts them

He causes His wind to blow and the waters to flow.

Tehillim/Psalm 147:12-18


Tehillim/Psalms 20.2-6

 

May the Lord answer you in time of trouble,

the name of Jacob’s G-d keep you safe.

May He send you help from the sanctuary,

and sustain you from Zion.

May He receive the tokens of all your meal offerings,

and approve your burnt offerings.  Selah

May He grant you your desire,

and fulfill your every plan.

May we shout for joy in your victory,

arrayed by standards in the name of our G-d.

May the Lord fulfill your every wish.

Tehillim/Psalms 20.2-6


Tehillim/Psalms 25.20-22

 

Protect me and save me;

let me not be disappointed,

for I have sought refuge in You.

May integrity and uprightness watch over me,

for I look to You.

O G-d, redeem Israel from all its distress.

Tehillim/Psalms 25.20-22


Tehillim/Psalms 107.12-15a

He humbled their hearts through suffering;

they stumbled with no one to help.

In their adversity they cried to the Lord,

and He rescued them from their troubles.

He brought them out of deepest darkness,

broke their bonds asunder.

Let them praise the Lord for His steadfast love.

Tehillim/Psalms 107.12-15a


Tehillim/Psalms 22.4-6

You are the Holy One enthroned,

the Praise of Israel.

In You our fathers trusted;

They trusted and You rescued them.

To You they cried out and they escaped;

in You they trusted and were not disappointed.

Tehillim/Psalms 22.4-6
