There the workers of iniquity have fallen. They are cast down and shall not be able to rise. Psalm 36:12

Those who turn aside into sin and oppose and seek to mislead those who hold fast to Christ and His Word are doomed to fall and be judged by God. They will be thrown down and utterly defeated so that they will never be able to rise up again.

O merciful God, grant that we not lose heart but hold fast to You and Your Word and not fall and lose our way. Keep us in Your Word that we might repent of our sins and place our faith in the redemption won for us through the shed blood of Christ Jesus. In His name, we pray. Amen.

Do not let the foot of pride come against me, and do not let the hand of the wicked remove me. Psalm 36:11

The psalmist prays that God would preserve and protect him from the violent attacks of those who proudly resist and oppose God and His Word, and that God would not let the wicked cause him to turn away from Christ and salvation through faith in His name.

Keep me, O God, from those who oppose and fight against the truth of Your Word, and do not let the words and actions of the wicked cause me to turn from You and Your promises of life and salvation through faith in Christ Jesus and His cross. Amen.

O continue your lovingkindness to those who know you, and your righteousness to the upright in heart. Psalm 36:10

David, the sweet psalmist of Israel, prays that God would continue to show lovingkindness to His own people, to those who look to Him in faith for mercy, and that He would count them righteous through faith in the coming Savior, Jesus Christ.

Do not cast me away on account of my sins, O God, but have mercy upon me, forgive my sins and count me righteous through faith in Jesus, the promised Messiah and Savior of Your people. Amen.

How excellent your lovingkindness is, O God! Therefore, the children of men put their trust under the shadow of your wings. Psalm 36:7

Christ Jesus made atonement for the sins of all when He suffered and died on the cross and, for that reason, God offers His lovingkindness, His mercy, His forgiveness, to all who look to Him in faith and take shelter in His grace for Jesus’ sake.

I am deserving of Your wrath and punishment, O God, but I look to You for mercy and take refuge in Your lovingkindness for the sake of Christ Jesus and His sacrifice for me on the cross. Amen.

Your mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds. Your righteousness is like the great mountains. Your judgments are a great deep. O LORD, you preserve man and beast. Psalm 36:5-6

Though many fail to see and acknowledge it, God’s mercy and His faithfulness are so great and immeasurable that they reach up into heaven, to the clouds. His righteousness is so great it is like the high mountains, and His judgments are like the great deep. He is the one who creates and preserves all life in this world. Our lives in this world and our eternal salvation depend on Him!

Have mercy on me, O God. Pardon my sin and grant me a place in Your everlasting kingdom for Jesus’ sake. Amen
