This is a podcast episode titled, Praying to Put On God’s Righteousness | Prayer on Psalm 11. The summary for this episode is: In our last episode we looked at Psalm 38 and David’s frustration with himself for being his own worst enemy. It’s a psalm where David confesses his overwhelming sin and how that’s made his life stink and fester. I’m thankful the Holy Spirit has inspired such prayers for us in our own sinfulness. We all know what it’s like to be our own worst enemy. On the other hand, the Holy Spirit has also given us inspired scriptures and prayer with which we can pursue his righteousness -- put on his righteousness as our own new clothing that’s fashioned in the image of Christ. Psalm 11 is one of those prayers, also of David. Let’s do that together in this podcast episode.  Psalm 11 ESV To the choirmaster. Of David.  1 In the LORD I take refuge; how can you say to my soul, “Flee like a bird to your mountain,  2 for behold, the wicked bend the bow; they have fitted their arrow to the string to shoot in the dark at the upright in heart;  3 if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?”  4 The LORD is in his holy temple; the LORD’S throne is in heaven; his eyes see, his eyelids test the children of man.  5 The LORD tests the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence.  6 Let him rain coals on the wicked; fire and sulfur and a scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup.  7 For the LORD is righteous; he loves righteous deeds; the upright shall behold his face. Matthew 5:5–10 ESV 5 Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.  6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.  7 Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.  8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.  9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.  10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Galatians 5:22–23 ESV  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Colossians 3:3–10 NIV 3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. 5 Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. 6 Because of these, the wrath of God is coming. 7 You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. 8 But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. 9 Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices 10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator. Colossians 3:12–15 NIV 12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. 15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Follow Dave Cover on Twitter @davecover.    Like this content?
