Praying the Psalms- Psalm 65

Jenny is on a journey of praying her way through the Psalms.  I was fortunate enough to join at the start.  Each weekend, we 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.

Psalm 65
"O you who hear prayer,
   to you all men will come."  Psalm 65:2
"You answer us with awesome deeds of righteousness,
   O God our Savior,
the hope of all the ends of the earth
   and of the farthest seas"  Psalm 65: 5
Lord, I am so thankful today that You hear our prayers.  Thank You for the awesome deeds of righteousness You have performed among Your people, my loved ones.  You answered many of our prayers for healing already this week, O God.  As we wait for two more answers right now, O God our Savior, I remember that You are the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas.  Show Yourself mighty and strong in our situations and in us as we wait, Father God.  In Jesus' name, amen.
"Only in the whole Christ does the whole Psalter become a reality,  a whole which the individual can never fully comprehend and call his own.  That is why the prayer of the psalms belongs in a peculiar way to the fellowship.  Even if a verse or a psalm is not one's own prayer, it is nevertheless the prayer of another member of the fellowship; so it is quite certainly the prayer of the true Man Jesus Christ and His Body on earth."   Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together, p. 47, emphasis added
