Psalms 141* David prays for God's acceptance and assistance. (1-4) ThatGod would appear for his rescue. (5-10)1-4 Make haste unto me. Those that know how to value God'sgracious presence, will be the more fervent in their prayers.When presented through the sacrifice and intercession of theSaviour, they will be as acceptable to God as the dailysacrifices and burnings of incense were of old. Prayer is aspiritual sacrifice, it is the offering up the soul and its bestaffections. Good men know the evil of tongue sins. When enemiesare provoking, we are in danger of speaking unadvisedly. Whilewe live in an evil world, and have such evil hearts, we haveneed to pray that we may neither be drawn nor driven to do anything sinful. Sinners pretend to find dainties in sin; but thosethat consider how soon sin will turn into bitterness, will dreadsuch dainties, and pray to God to take them out of their sight,and by his grace to turn their hearts against them. Good menpray against the sweets of sin. 5-10 We should be ready to welcome the rebuke of our heavenlyFather, and also the reproof of our brethren. It shall not breakmy head, if it may but help to break my heart: we must show thatwe take it kindly. Those who slighted the word of God before,will be glad of it when in affliction, for that opens the ear toinstruction. When the world is bitter, the word is sweet. Let uslift our prayer unto God. Let us entreat him to rescue us fromthe snares of Satan, and of all the workers of iniquity. Inlanguage like this psalm, O Lord, would we entreat that our poorprayers should set forth our only hope, our only dependence onthee. Grant us thy grace, that we may be prepared for thisemployment, being clothed with thy righteousness, and having allthe gifts of thy Spirit planted in our hearts
