Prayers from the Bible: i Salmi

post04-geraldine-brooks-600x450[1] The importance of the Psalms is very great, in them we find inspiration for prayer and edification, we also find comfort when we find ourselves living in particular situations in our life. The Psalms are not to be learned by heart, as prayer, to be effective, it must spring from the heart and must be recited in one's own words (Matteo 6:5-8). The Psalms should be read and meditated on.

The Psalms have always been sung both by Jews and by Christians of every century and country, and of this, most modern Christians have forgotten about it, preferring to sing other songs during worship than the Word of God, just as the Bible itself commands us. For this reason they are not only important for building, but they should always be at the center of Sunday Christian worship.

In the Psalms, David and other writers gave their hearts to God in prayer, expressing honest feelings of distress and despair, asking him for protection. They confessed their state of sin to God, confidently they expressed their hope in God, and with joy they praised him. Many times we find ourselves in unbearable situations of sadness, depression, distress, where we don't know how to pray or express our feelings to God. Our fear sometimes prevents us from saying what we really feel. The prayers found in the Psalms help you get to know God better, to see it through the eyes of the psalmist, to really cry to ask him for comfort, to express anguish, fear and uncertainty, to know him as the God who loves us and supports us in the most tragic situations.

We remember the words of Jesus:

In truth, verily I tell you, whatever you will ask the Father in my name, he will give it to you. (Giovanni 16:23)

I also tell you: ask persistently, and it will be given to you; seek without tiring, and you will find; knock repeatedly, and it will be opened to you. (Luca 11:9)

la forza m’è venuta a mancare per la mia afflizione,
si logorano tutte le mie ossa.

Because of my enemies I have become a disgrace,
a great disgrace to my neighbors, and a scare for my acquaintances.
Whoever sees me outside runs away from me.

I am completely forgotten, like a dead man;
I am like a broken vase.

Because I hear the slanders of many,
everything frightens me around me,
while they are advised to my detriment
and they contemplate taking my life.

But I trust you, O LORD;

LORD, you have examined me and you know me.

You know when I sit and when I get up,

Since the word is not yet on my tongue,
that you, LORD, you already know it fully.

You surround me, you stand in front of me and behind me,
and lay your hand on me.

The knowledge you have of me is wonderful,
too high for me to get there.

Where could I go away from your spirit,
where I will flee from your presence?

If I go up to heaven you are there;

If I take the wings of dawn
and I go to live at the edge of the sea,

there too your hand will lead me and your right hand will take hold of me.

and the light will become night around me ",

and in your book they were all written
the days that were destined for me,
when as yet there was none of them.

Oh, how precious your thoughts are to me, hate!
How big is their whole!

If I want to count them, they are more numerous than sand;
when I wake up I'm still with you.

sure, you will kill the wicked, hate;
therefore turn away from me bloodthirsty men.

They speak against you wickedly;
your enemies use your name to support the lie.

LORD, I don't hate those who hate you?
And I don't hate those who rise up against you?

I hate them with a perfect hatred;
I consider them my enemies.

Examine me, hate, and know my heart.
Test me and know my thoughts.

See if there is any unfair way in me
and guide me on the eternal way.

(Salmo 139)
