What is Psalm 109 used for?

This psalm is one of the Imprecatory Psalms against deceitful enemy, according to the New Oxford Annotated Bible, and is titled “Prayer for rescue from enemies.” It begins with the psalmist's plea in verses 1–5, then moves on to a lengthy imprecation (verses 6–19, concluding or summarizing in verse 20). The resumed pleading in verse 21 includes appeals to Yahweh's steadfast love, specifics of the psalmist's own misery, and a prayer for revenge against the adversaries, but the lament concludes with the promise to praise (verses 30–31), which is so typical in this style of psalm. The psalmist's curse ‘extends through three generations' in verses 8–14: on the person (verse 8), the person's children (verses 9–13), and the person's parents (verse 14). Psalm 55 reflects the shift from many foes (verses 2–5) to a single individual (verses 6–19).

In verse 4, evil is provided ‘in exchange for my affection.' The curses in this chapter are in line with Proverbs 17.13, which states that “if evil is given for good, evil will not depart from their house.” Returning evil for good is also found in other Psalms, such as 41, 69, and here in 109, as portending Judas as a ‘anti-friend' character who returns evil for good or even friendship.

In contrast to the introduction of Psalm 110, when God calls a man to sit at his right hand, made eternally like the priest king Melchizedek, the end of Psalm 109 shows God at the right hand of the impoverished man.

What is the powerful prayer?

I pray to you, loving God, that you will comfort me in my pain, strengthen the hands of my healers, and bless the methods utilized to cure me. Give me such faith in the power of your grace that I may put my complete trust in you, even when I am terrified; through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

What is the psalm prayer for protection?

V1 of Psalm 91 “You are my defender and protector,” V2 can say to whoever goes to the LORD for safety and remains under the Almighty's protection. You are my God, and I put my faith in you.”

What is the meaning of Psalm 110?

“I said to my Lord.” This psalm is Psalm 109 in the Greek Septuagint edition of the Bible, and Psalm 109 in the Latin Vulgate translation. It's called Dixit Dominus in Latin (“The Lord Said”). It is classified as a royal psalm as well as a messianic psalm. This psalm is claimed as proof of the plurality of the Godhead and Jesus' supremacy as king, priest, and Messiah, and it is a cornerstone in Christian theology. Psalm 110 is “the most frequently quoted or referred psalm in the New Testament” as a result of this. According to traditional Jewish texts, the psalm's theme is either Abraham, David, or the Jewish Messiah.

What is the meaning of Psalm 107?

Psalm 107 is primarily a song commemorating God's power. Despite the Israelites' misdeeds, the Lord forgives them. The Lord “turns a desert into pools of water… and there he lets the hungry live,” the psalm continues (v. 35, 36). The imagery of “amazing works” mentioned earlier in the psalm is reinforced by this narrative of miracles accomplished by the Lord (v. 8). The Lord's works, on the other hand, are addressed in many psalms; what makes Psalm 107 unique is that it depicts the Lord's handiwork as an explanation for the people. The psalm is a song of praise to the Lord that is written “for the goal of making known to humankind, so that they may share in the worship of.” This idea suggests that David has composed a sort of circulating hymn thanking God for allowing the Israelites to thank Him. These two themes of enlightenment and appreciation are reinforced throughout the song, as well as the rest of the fifth book of psalms, of which Psalm 107 is the first hymn.

What do you pray for in hard times?

Father in Heaven, I'm lonely and battered, tears well up in my eyes, and I toss and turn at night.

I need to know that you care, that you love me, that you will be my sanctuary from agony, that you will replace my distress with calm, and that you will be my strength when I am weak and unable to continue.

Help me not to be afraid of the future, but to trust that you are in charge when my emotions overwhelm me and I am in despair. Help me to “Be quiet, and know that you are God” when I can't speak or don't know what to say.

How can I pray better to God?

I adore Luke 5:16 because it demonstrates that, like you and me, Jesus needed to recharge his batteries and spend time with his Heavenly Father. The life of Christ is meant to serve as a model for us to follow and learn from. So, despite being God incarnate, Jesus didn't use his superpowers as the Son of God to deal with life's difficulties. Instead, he would “sneak away” to pray when he was tired, burdened, or in need of spiritual refreshment, tapping into the power, perception, and purpose that can only be found in God's presence.

Prayer is one of the most potent tools God has given us, and I believe it has never been more vital for God's people to be on their knees than it is now, as we look ahead to 2022. However, knowing how to pray isn't always simple. The followers of Jesus were perplexed as well. They were familiar with the Torah's frequently repeated prayers. But Jesus prayed with a might and authority they had never seen before, as if God was listening! So, according to Matthew 6, when they came to Jesus, they didn't say, “Teach us another prayer.” “Lord, teach us to pray,” they prayed.

Christ's response is the Lord's Prayer (Matthew 6:9–13). It's a lovely prayer that every Christian should remember; I challenged my granddaughter to do so. I don't believe Jesus intended it to become another ritualistic prayer, as beautiful as the words are. It was intended to serve as an example of how to pray.

Here are eight strategies to developing a more strong and effective prayer life that I've discovered. I hope they inspire you to make the year 2022 a year of prayer.

How do you start a prayer?

It is best to seek out a peaceful area where you will not be interrupted for genuine prayer.

  • Step 1: Make a prayer to Heavenly Father. Because we are praying to God, we begin the prayer by addressing him.

What can we learn from Psalm 91?

To put it another way, Almighty God is all-powerful, and the enemy is powerless! Our protection comes from God. God is our safe haven. When I am in the hands of my Father, there is no plague, pestilence, darkness, dread at night, or serpents that can hurt me. Why are we so terrified of a helpless foe who has been conquered by Christ's death and resurrection? He has no choice except to try to intimidate us, confuse us, and accuse us. He is utterly powerless! Powerless!

Am I implying that “bad” things never happen to decent people and that those who walk in the secret area are never tested?


When considering Psalm 91, we must consider it in the context of the rest of scripture. Sometimes bad things happen to good people. Christians get sick, have miscarriages, go through the heartbreak of having a baby born with impairments, mourn the loss of a loved one, die in combat, and go through other trials. Sin and death have been released in this earth, and we see the consequences every day.

In Job's narrative, we see the consequences of sin and death. The adversary didn't cause any troubles that God didn't allow in Job's case, and in our lives as Christians as well. Even when we are feeling the consequences of our own sin, God is right there with us, walking with us through it. Our eternal hope is that God will rescue and deliver us in the end. Whoever made the pledge is trustworthy.

What is the message of Psalm 91?

According to the Midrash, Moses penned Psalm 91 on the day he finished building the Tabernacle in the desert. The lines recount Moses' own encounter with the Divine cloud as he entered the Tabernacle. Moses authored this psalm while ascending into the cloud floating above Mount Sinai, according to the Midrash Tehillim and Zohar, and chanted these lines as protection from the angels of destruction.

Psalm 91 emphasizes the ideas of God's protection and deliverance from danger in Jewish theology. According to the Talmud (Shevu'ot 15b), this psalm is known as the “song of bad spirits” and “song of plagues” (“shir shel pega'im” and “shir shel nega'im,” respectively), because “one who recites it with confidence in God will be helped by Him in time of danger.” This psalm has been used to drive away demons and evil spirits since the time of the Geonim. According to midrashim, the psalm mentions a variety of demons that harm man, including those named in verses 5–6 as “Terror,” “Arrow,” “Pestilence,” and “Destruction.” From the Late Antique period, both Jews and Christians wrote the psalm in amulets. The following verse, verse 7 (“A thousand shall fall by your side,” etc.), according to the Talmud (Shevu'ot 15b), is a reference to the demons who would perish if this psalm were spoken. In a similar spirit, Psalm 91 was included in Dead Sea Scroll 11QapocrPs as one of the “Four Psalms Against Demons,” the other three psalms being previously unknown and assumed to have been used for exorcisms by the Qumran community.

Even in times of distress, modern Christians consider the psalm as a source of peace and protection.

“Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet,” according to verse 13 of the King James Version, was the origin of the iconography of Christ treading on the beasts, which was seen in the Late Antique period and revived in Carolingian and Anglo-Saxon art.
