Bible Commentary for Psalms 88:1

Discussion for Psalms 88:1

  • Timothy Wayne George on Psalms 88:1
    Yahweh, the God of my salvation, I have cried day, and night before you. We must be persistent in our prayer. There are times when it seems like God is silent, but if we ask, seek, and knock the doors will be opened unto us. Just as Daniel prayed three times a day, and Yahweh God delivered him from the den of lions. We too will be delivered when we cry out to God for salvation morning, noon, and evening. As Jesus prayed thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven will come in the fulness of time. As we seek righteousness, justice, and mercy we bring the kingdom of God to earth. So do not despair, but look to Jehovah for He alone can save us.
