The troubles of my heart have multiplied; free me from my anguish. Psalm 25:17 Although it is true that faith brings peace, yet it does not always bring it instantaneously. There may be certain reasons calling for the trial of faith, rather than the reward of faith. Charles Haddon Spurgeon, 1834-92, British Reformed Baptist

Look on my affliction and my pain, And forgive all my sins. Psalm 25:18
Anxiety makes us doubt God’s loving-kindness, and thus our love to Him grows cold; we feel mistrust, and thus grieve the Spirit of God, so that our prayers become hindered, our consistent example marred, and our life one of self-seeking. Charles H. Spurgeon, 1834-92, English preacher Baptist

Keep my soul, and deliver me; Let me not be ashamed, for I put my trust in You. Psalm 25:20 Hope is the opposite of desperate and panicky manipulations, of scurrying and worrying. And hoping is not dreaming. It is not spinning an illusion or fantasy to protect us from our boredom or our pain. It means a confident, alert expectation that God will do what he said he will do. Eugene Peterson, 20th century


Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, For I wait for You. Psalm 25:21 We may think God wants actions of a certain kind, but God wants people of a certain kind. C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

Redeem Israel, O God, Out of all their troubles! Psalm 25:22 I beseech those whose piety will permit them reverently to petition, that they will pray for this union, and ask that He who buildeth up and pulleth down nations will, in mercy preserve and unite us. For a Nation divided against itself cannot stand. Sam Houston, 1793-1863, American statesman, politician, soldier, 1st /3president of Republic of Texas
