7 Powerful Psalms for Troubled Times


We all have a favourite Psalm we pray with regularly. We do it because we know that when we pray the Psalms God answers. They’re his words and he’s bound by them. They’re his bonds and he does not go back on his words. Scripture says that “He watches over his words to fulfill it” (Jeremiah 1:12). When we bring his words back to him in prayer, he rises up to fulfill his promises.

Early this year, God’s word to us on this platform is that this is the year of alignment and I believe that he is doing exactly what he has professed to do. God is shaking the table, cleansing and bringing light to every dark situations but we also need to get aligned in his word. Whenever I cannot be as articulate or as insightful in prayers as I’d like to be, the book of psalms does it for me. So if you’re struggling with prayers and unsure of what say to God during this crisis, the book of psalms is a go to prayer book for this season.

Will you join me in praying the psalms for this troubled time? All you have to do is to pray a psalm a day from the list below (Please note that you may need to pray the whole chapter of your chosen Psalm a day. There only a caption of the Psalms below), listen out to what God is saying to you as you pray, write them down and if there are instructions that you need carrying out, take a bold step of faith and do it.

The book of psalms contains powerful chapters that has bn a blessing to many of which I am one.I and husby recite psalm 91 and 121 every time we pray daily and we have seen the impact on our family.
