Why are you cast down? Why are you disquieted? God is Your Exceeding Joy!

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for a new day. Thank you for allowing me to sleep at night so I can wake in the morning, new and renewed. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God. Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God. (Psalm 43:4-5)

Lord, I’m here again. I’m here to lift up your daughter who loves you. Lord, I ask that today you be Lindsey’s exceeding joy.  Fill her with your joy Lord. And then give her a chance to play it back to you on her violin. Let her play her song that reminds herself NOT to be cast down, NOT to be disquieted and NOT to allow that inner turmoil. Instead, renew her hope Lord, for you are her salvation and each new day she can sing and play her praises to you. Yes, all the glory goes to you Lord. The glory is all yours. Glory! I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings.  Amen

ESV:
Then I will go to the altar of God,
    to God my exceeding joy,
and I will praise you with the lyre,

    O God, my God.

Why are you cast down, O my soul,
    and why are you in turmoil within me?
Hope in God; for I shall again praise him,
    my salvation and my God.

HCSB:
Then I will come to the altar of God,

to God, my greatest joy.
I will praise You with the lyre,
God, my God.

Why am I so depressed?
Why this turmoil within me?
Put your hope in God, for I will still praise Him,
my Savior and my God.

KJV translation note

The King James Version is a beautiful translation of the original Hebrew and Greek, however I sometimes find Old English hard to understand fully. 1 or 2 other translations can help clarify what it is saying so I can understand it. More Info CLICK: References
