Rev. Robert Wentzel of Trinity Lutheran Church, Bemidji, Minnesota joins host Rev. Brady Finnern of Messiah Lutheran, Sartell, MN to study and pray Psalm 5.
David prays with groaning and demands to the LORD while suffering. He confesses that the LORD is one with an abundance of steadfast love and one that is not indifferent to evil. Psalm 5 can be utilized as we begin our days to watch for His blessings in our lives. We also may use this Psalm to remind us of our need to have the LORD lead us to His Righteousness as we are susceptible to evil every day. “O LORD, You despise wickedness and evil, lead us to repentance by Your steadfast love as You cover us with Your favor as with a shield. Lord help us to pray. Amen”
Thy Strong Word reveals the light of our salvation in Christ through study of God’s Word, breaking our darkness with His redeeming light. Each weekday, two pastors fix our eyes on Jesus by considering Holy Scripture, verse by verse, in order to be strengthened in the Word and be equipped to faithfully serve in our daily vocations.
Thy Strong Word is hosted by Rev. Brady Finnern, pastor of Messiah Lutheran Church in Sartell, MN, and graciously underwritten by the Lutheran Heritage Foundation.
