There is an urgency in today's Psalm. The word "hurry" appears three times in just five

verses and the closing words of the psalmist are "Oh, Lord, don't delay!" There is a time

to wait and there is a time for urgency. What is your prayer today? What prayer would

you end with the words, "Oh, Lord, don't delay"?


If I were to chose a hymn for these days, I think it would be "God of Grace and God of

Glory". The last verse in particular...


"Save us from weak resignation

to the evils we deplore;

let the search for thy salvation

be our glory evermore.

Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,

serving thee whom we adore,

serving thee whom we adore."


May we be saved from weak resignation, stand up against evil, and not delay in seeking

justice.





Psalm 70

1 Hurry, God, to deliver me;

hurry, Lord, to help me!

2 Let those who seek my life be ashamed and humiliated!

Let them fall back and be disgraced—

those people who delight in my downfall!

3 Let those who say, “Aha! Aha!”

stop because of their shameful behavior.

4 But let all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you,

and let those who love your saving help say again and again:

“God is great!”

5 But me? I’m poor and needy.

Hurry to me, God!

You are my helper and my deliverer.

Oh, Lord, don’t delay!
