Psalm for Prayer - September 21, 2015

Psalm 124, A Song of Ascents. Of David.

 [1] If it had not been the LORD who was on our side—
  let Israel now say—
[2] if it had not been the LORD who was on our side
  when people rose up against us,
[3] then they would have swallowed us up alive,
  when their anger was kindled against us;
[4] then the flood would have swept us away,
  the torrent would have gone over us;
[5] then over us would have gone
  the raging waters.

 [6] Blessed be the LORD,
  who has not given us
  as prey to their teeth!
[7] We have escaped like a bird
  from the snare of the fowlers;
the snare is broken,
  and we have escaped!

 [8] Our help is in the name of the LORD,
  who made heaven and earth.

(Psalm 124 ESV)
