Psalm 70: To bring to remembrance

See also

A short prayer demanding God make haste to destroy one's enemy.

Sometimes a short extemporary prayer is needed. It is not as if God forgets but -- strange as it may seem-- sometimes one has to ask for help. Some prayers are unasked and yet are answered. But often a prayer needs to be asked in order for God to help. It is not clear why God sometimes helps only when asked. God knows all and understands all. He is in our past, our present, and our future. Nevertheless, it is a good habit to always God to help us. It is said that prayer is giving God permission to invade our free will.

1{To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance.} Make haste, O God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O LORD.

2Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.

3Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha.

4Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

5But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O LORD, make no tarrying.
