    This is a Psalm I regard as one of my personal Psalm. The Lord has given me somewhat deep revelation concerning this Psalm. It is a Psalm we can use for our healing, protection and deliverance from the spirit of death. Pray it when you are under demonic attack or when you are praying for healing for yourself or someone else. It can equally be employed as a praise Psalm, in praising the Most High.
