Pilgrim Psalms (4)

Psalm 123 was another psalm that the Jewish pilgrims sang on their way to Jerusalem. It is a very short psalm, but it teaches us two very important things about prayer.
Verse 1 says, “Lord, I look up and pray to you. You sit as King in heaven.” This verse reminds us that when we pray, we are talking to God. We should focus on Him and not allow other distractions to keep us from thinking about God.
Verse 2b of our Bible Reading shows us why we pray to God. “So we depend on the Lord our God, waiting for him to have mercy on us.” We pray to God because we depend on Him. There is no one else who can help us, protect us, save us and take care of us. Only God can do those things for us.
God knows you, and He knows exactly what you need. Talk with God today. Then depend on Him to bring about good things in your life.
