Praying the Psalms- Psalm 40

Jenny has begun a journey of praying her way through the Psalms that I have decided to join. Each weekend, we will pray through one psalm and post our prayer and/or meditations on that psalm as the Lord leads. Check out her journey and join us in Praying the Psalms.

"For troubles without number surround me;
       my sins have overtaken me, and I cannot see.
       They are more than the hairs of my head,
       and my heart fails within me.

 Be pleased, O LORD, to save me;
       O LORD, come quickly to help me."  Psalm 40:12-13
"I desire to do your will, O my God;
       your law is within my heart."  Psalm 40: 8
"Yet I am poor and needy;
       may the Lord think of me.
       You are my help and my deliverer;
       O my God, do not delay."  Psalm 40: 17
Lord, Your Word gives word to my heart's cry.  In Jesus' name, amen.
