Praying Psalm 137:1-9

Standard

 

Dear Father,

Thank-you that You are with us no matter where we are or what we are going through. By the power of the Holy Spirit, may we never get to the place where we cannot, or do not want, to praise and worship You. You are worthy to be exalted no matter what. May we never forget all the goodness that You show us.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

 

 

 

Psalm 137:1-9  NKJV   

“By the rivers of Babylon, There we sat down, yea, we wept When we remembered Zion.
We hung our harps Upon the willows in the midst of it.
For there those who carried us away captive asked of us a song, And those who plundered us requested mirth, Saying, “Sing us one of the songs of Zion!”
How shall we sing the Lord’s song In a foreign land?
If I forget you, O Jerusalem, Let my right hand forget its skill!
If I do not remember you, Let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth— If I do not exalt Jerusalem Above my chief joy.
Remember, O Lord, against the sons of Edom The day of Jerusalem, Who said, “Raze it, raze it, To its very foundation!”
O daughter of Babylon, who are to be destroyed, Happy the one who repays you as you have served us!
Happy the one who takes and dashes Your little ones against the rock!”
