The Psalms 144 : A Prayer for Rescue and Prosperity



A Psalm of David.


1 Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war,
and my fingers to fight:



2 my goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer;
my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me.


3 LORD, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him! or the son of man, that thou makest account of him!


4 Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.


5 Bow thy heavens, O LORD, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.


6 Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them.


7 Send thine hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of strange children;


8 whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.


9 I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee.


10 It is he that giveth salvation unto kings: who delivereth David his servant from the hurtful sword.


11 Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood:


12 that our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:


13 that our garners may be full, affording all manner of store; that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets:


14 that our oxen may be strong to labor; that there be no breaking in, nor going out;
that there be no complaining in our streets.


15 Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the LORD.
