Bible Readings: Psalms 5

The prior chapter was an evening prayer, while this is the morning prayer. Romans 8:26 “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.” Some deny themselves the benefits of prayer because they do not know how to. A way that we are helped by the Spirit in regards to prayers is by providing us with what to say. Psalms is a book of songs but in an ingenious way we are also taught how to pray. For instance, by now we should know that we must pray before going to bed and in the morning. Psalms 55:17 “Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.”

When it was sung in the Hebrew language it made it easy to memorize. Music is a tool used today against our people to have them meditate on wicked songs instead of wise words. Thus we are learning not only how to lift up our hands to pray but also how to meditate on the commandments of the Heavenly Father. Psalms 119:48 “My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.”
