Great Sunday services this morning our Preacher preached on Psalm 56:1 Be merciful unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me.
56:2 Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight against me, O thou most High.
56:3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
56:4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.
56:5 Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.
56:6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.
56:7 Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the people, O God.
56:8 Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?
56:9 When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.
56:10 In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word.
56:11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.
56:12 Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee.
56:13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?
Tonights service was based on asking above and beyond when we pray.

22:3 The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence.
22:4 I will call on the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
22:5 When the waves of death compassed me, the floods of ungodly men made me afraid;
22:6 The sorrows of hell compassed me about; the snares of death prevented me;
22:7 In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried to my God: and he did hear my voice out of his temple, and my cry did enter into his ears.
22:8 Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations of heaven moved and shook, because he was wroth.
22:9 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.
22:10 He bowed the heavens also, and came down; and darkness was under his feet.
22:11 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: and he was seen upon the wings of the wind.
22:12 And he made darkness pavilions round about him, dark waters, and thick clouds of the skies.
22:13 Through the brightness before him were coals of fire kindled.
22:14 The LORD thundered from heaven, and the most High uttered his voice.
22:15 And he sent out arrows, and scattered them; lightning, and discomfited them.
22:16 And the channels of the sea appeared, the foundations of the world were discovered, at the rebuking of the LORD, at the blast of the breath of his nostrils.
22:17 He sent from above, he took me; he drew me out of many waters;
22:18 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them that hated me: for they were too strong for me.
22:19 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay.
22:20 He brought me forth also into a large place: he delivered me, because he delighted in me.
22:21 The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness: according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.
22:22 For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God.
22:23 For all his judgments were before me: and as for his statutes, I did not depart from them.
22:24 I was also upright before him, and have kept myself from mine iniquity.
22:25 Therefore the LORD hath recompensed me according to my righteousness; according to my cleanness in his eye sight.
22:26 With the merciful thou wilt show thyself merciful, and with the upright man thou wilt show thyself upright.
22:27 With the pure thou wilt show thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt show thyself unsavory.
22:28 And the afflicted people thou wilt save: but thine eyes are upon the haughty, that thou mayest bring them down.
22:29 For thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness.
22:30 For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall.
22:31 As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.
22:32 For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God?
22:33 God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect.
22:34 He maketh my feet like hinds' feet: and setteth me upon my high places.
22:35 He teacheth my hands to war; so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.
22:36 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy gentleness hath made me great.
22:37 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me; so that my feet did not slip.
22:38 I have pursued mine enemies, and destroyed them; and turned not again until I had consumed them.
22:39 And I have consumed them, and wounded them, that they could not arise: yea, they are fallen under my feet.
22:40 For thou hast girded me with strength to battle: them that rose up against me hast thou subdued under me.
22:41 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies, that I might destroy them that hate me.
22:42 They looked, but there was none to save; even unto the LORD, but he answered them not.
22:43 Then did I beat them as small as the dust of the earth, I did stamp them as the mire of the street, and did spread them abroad.
22:44 Thou also hast delivered me from the strivings of my people, thou hast kept me to be head of the heathen: a people which I knew not shall serve me.
22:45 Strangers shall submit themselves unto me: as soon as they hear, they shall be obedient unto me.
22:46 Strangers shall fade away, and they shall be afraid out of their close places.
22:47 The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation.
22:48 It is God that avengeth me, and that bringeth down the people under me.
22:49 And that bringeth me forth from mine enemies: thou also hast lifted me up on high above them that rose up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man.
22:50 Therefore I will give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and I will sing praises unto thy name.
22:51 He is the tower of salvation for his king: and sheweth mercy to his anointed, unto David, and to his seed for evermore.
