TEXT: Psalm 55: 1-23(KJV)
55:1. Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my supplication.
55:2. Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise;
55:3. Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the oppression of the wicked: for they cast iniquity upon me, and in wrath they hate me.

55:4. My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death are fallen upon me.
55:5. Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath overwhelmed me.
55:6. And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest.
55:7. Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness. Selah.
55:8. I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest.

55:9. Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues: for I have seen violence and strife in the city.
55:10. Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof: mischief also and sorrow are in the midst of it.
55:11. Wickedness is in the midst thereof: deceit and guile depart not from her streets.
55:12. For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him:

55:13. But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance.
55:14. We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.
55:15. Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell: for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them.

55:16. As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me.
55:17. Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.
55:18. He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me.
55:19. God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of old. Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God.

55:20. He hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him: he hath broken his covenant.
55:21. The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords.
55:22. Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
55:23. But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in thee.

Anglican Daily Fountain 19th February 2024 STUDY:

In this Psalm, David prays for God to attend to his complaints about his wicked enemies. If possible, he would prefer to escape to a far location to be at rest. He is greatly alarmed because he is being troubled by not even a real enemy but by his companion and acquaintance who worshipped God with him. In spite of the bad activities of this person, David says he will call on God to save him by praying three times a day. He also advises the righteous to cast his burden on the Lord who will sustain him in stability. He leaves the judgment of the wicked in the hands of God and says he will trust in Him.

There are lots of problems and challenges facing Christians today including insecurity, kidnappings, high cost of living, high rate of unemployment, food scarcity, poverty, high monetary exchange rate and corruption of the political class. We need to call upon the Lord to grant us solutions to these problems. We need o also pray for those in authority to rule with justice and the fear of God. Start praying today by calling upon the Lord.

PRAYER: O Lord, help me to call upon You every day
