Psalm 70 is a 911 prayer for God’s help.
Only five verses long, this psalm begins and ends with a cry for God to hurry to the rescue.
In times of crisis, we want help to be in a hurry to reach us.
God, hurry to rescue me.
Lord, hurry to help me! (v. 1 CSB)
In times of crisis, we want help to arrive without any delay.
I am oppressed and needy;
hurry to me, God.
You are my help and my deliverer;
Lord, do not delay. (v. 5 CSB)
And in times of crisis, we don’t have time for lengthy explanations.
911 prayers are short, direct calls for help.
Father, You are my help and my deliverer. Hurry to rescue me! Please don’t delay. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
