We’re in Psalm 70 this week at Park Church, continuing Christ in the Psalms, our annual summer series. Here’s how you can prepare for service:
1. Read through our text, Psalm 70.
When we’re in danger, the only true way to escape those who seek our lives is turning to God and finding our joy and gladness fully and finally in Him and His salvation. The desperate cry of our heart and all our prayers must be, “Come quickly, do not delay, and satisfy us with Your steadfast love.”
As you read, consider asking yourself the following three questions:
- How does this Psalm help me pray?
- How does this Psalm help me feel?
- How does this Psalm help me see Jesus?
2. Read, pray and sing through the service:
CALL TO WORSHIP: Psalm 18:1–6
CONFESSION OF SIN: From Every Seasons Prayers by Scotty Smith.
Dear heavenly Father,
our sins are too heavy to carry,
too real to hide,
and too deep to undo.
We praise You for Your welcoming heart,
daily mercies, and gospel riches.
Forgive what our lips struggle to name,
what our hearts can no longer hide,
and what our hands cannot change.
Set us free from the lingering shame from our past;
meet us in the present reality of our need;
and grant us hope in the future You have secured.
We trust in the finished work of Your Son
and the ongoing work of Your Spirit.
In Jesus’ name we make our prayer. Amen.
Your Name Is Good (Psalm 54) (Joel Limpic, Scott Mills)
