Wesley's Notes for Psalms 61:6


61:6 Prolong - The years of my life and reign. Thus he speaks because his kingdom was not like Saul's, but established to him and his heirs; and because Christ, his son and heir, should actually, and in his own person possess the kingdom for ever.

    I am so glad I can turn to the Lord. In the timeof trouble he shall hide me.He's my friend when I need someone to talk to.Whe I get lonely I can call him.When my strength weakens I can lean on him. My heart feels like it's bleeding at times because of heartbreak.He heals broken hearts and diseases.Thank You Lord for healing and deliverance and I am so glad I can depend on you at all times.
