The Book of Psalms poetically describes the great inner struggles of humanity, which we've had to face since dawn of time. Whether you wish to praise God, thank Him, pray for deliverance or protection, you can always turn to the Psalms to find the right words to reach His heart. The Domine Exaudi is a Psalm of David that teaches us that we will obtain our deliverance through a profound piety and by committing our will to God’s. The seven Psalms of Deliverance remind us that God is our refuge, and that nothing can hurt us if we trust in Him.
“Lord, hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy; in your faithfulness and righteousness come to my relief. Do not bring your servant into judgment, for no one living is righteous before you. The enemy pursues me, he crushes me to the ground; he makes me dwell in the darkness like those long dead.
So my spirit grows faint within me; my heart within me is dismayed. I remember the days of long ago; I meditate on all your works; and consider what your hands have done. I spread out my hands to you;I thirst for you like a parched land. Answer me quickly, Lord;my spirit fails. Do not hide your face from me or I will be like those who go down to the pit. Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life. Rescue me from my enemies, Lord, for I hide myself in you. Teach me to do your will, for you are my God;may your good Spirit lead me on level ground. For your name’s sake, Lord, preserve my life; in your righteousness, bring me out of trouble. In your unfailing love, silence my enemies; destroy all my foes, for I am your servant.”
Like there are seven Psalms of repentance, there are also seven Psalms of Deliverance: Psalm 23, Psalm 30, Psalm 121, Psalm 125, Psalm 126, Psalm 127, and Psalm 91 (the numbering may vary, depending on the Bible translation.).
