Psalm for Prayer - November 15, 2015

The Lord Has Chosen Zion - A Song of Ascents.

[1] Remember, O LORD, in David's favor,
  all the hardships he endured,
[2] how he swore to the LORD
  and vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob,
[3] “I will not enter my house
  or get into my bed,
[4] I will not give sleep to my eyes
  or slumber to my eyelids,
[5] until I find a place for the LORD,
  a dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob.”
 

 [6] Behold, we heard of it in Ephrathah;
  we found it in the fields of Jaar.
[7] “Let us go to his dwelling place;
  let us worship at his footstool!”
 

 [8] Arise, O LORD, and go to your resting place,
  you and the ark of your might.
[9] Let your priests be clothed with righteousness,
  and let your saints shout for joy.
[10] For the sake of your servant David,
  do not turn away the face of your anointed one.
 

 [11] The LORD swore to David a sure oath
  from which he will not turn back:
“One of the sons of your body
  I will set on your throne.
[12] If your sons keep my covenant
  and my testimonies that I shall teach them,
their sons also forever
  shall sit on your throne.”
 

(Psalm 132:1-12 ESV)
