LESSON FOR JUNE 20
PRAYER FOR THE TEMPTED.
LESSON TEXT-Psalm 141.
GOLDEN TEXT-Keep me from th
snare which they have, laid for me.
The style of this psalm closely re
seinbles the known psalms of David it
the first part of the psalter. Frorr
its structure and character, it in t
be credited to David. In it are pre
sented complaint, prayer and conti
dent hope of relief. It Is a petition fol
deliverance from sins to which his at
flictions tempted him, and from the
enemies who caused his affliction.
I. Prayer. "My prayer directed
(vv. 1, 2). There is good reason foi
believing David wrote this while go
ing through the experience recorded
in I Samuel 24. It is evident he IN
passing through a time of great stres
and was in dire need of help for he
urges "haste" -in giving heed to hie
call, (Luke 18:1-8). David looks tc
Jehovah as his only and sure helper
We are told to omit the first word
"unto" in this verse and to read, "I
have called thee." Every human hell
had failed and faith fearlessly turns tc
God. Can God be urged?. Surely we
are taught that God respects hie
"remembrancers" who cry "day and
night" (Psalm 40:13; 69:17, 18; 76:5;
71:12; 143:7). To fold the hande
weakly and to "bide his time" is usu.
ally an evidence of spiritual debility
and of a desire to shirk the work
involved in a true exercise of prayer,
True faith knows but one way of de.
liverance, that of prayer (Phil..4:6,?),
and those who call in faith get deliv
erance (Rom. 10:13). Such prayer
the fruit of heart and lips, is before
God "as incense" and its effectivenese
does not depend upon its being pre
sented in the tabernacle-it is a "sac
rifice" of praise well-pleasing4o God.
We are to pray to God through hie
Son and in the Holy Spirit. Such
l)rayjer is set forth before him as a
sacrifice of sweet smelling savor.
11. Practice. "Incline not my hearl
to practice wicked works'
(v. 4). Such prayer as here suggestei
demands a preparation of purity. Ai
the "incense" was prepared witi
great care (Ex. 30:36) and its fra
grance was brought out by fire (Rom
8:26, 27; Eph. 6:18), so likewise ther
must be a continual practice of praye
and an absence of "wicked works.
In no way are we so apt to sin a
with our lips, but back of the lips i
the heart (Matt. 15:11; Luke 6:45)
The tongue can no man tame (Jamel
3:8), yet God is able and his way i
to cleanse the fountain. Te hay<
the mouth filled first with prayer an'
praise and then with evil is contrar3
to reason and to God's commands
David recognised that the heart ia the
source of "wicked works," and prayei
that he be not even "inclined" t<
them (Matt. 6:13; Jam. 1:13). If he
"keeps the door" we have a safe guard
lil.,Position. "Let him reprove me'
vv. 5-u. "Faithful are the wounds of
a friend." This seems to be the po
sition David desired to occupy, one
that would be "a kindness" to him
Such correction is as sweet oil. Oil
is healing and soothing and here sym
bolizes the healing effect of correc
tion. Fools hate reproof, wise men
plead for it. David not only welcomed
wisdom but (see R. V.) promises tC
pray for such friends when calamitiet!
come upon them'and in the time wher
they are overcome by wickedness.
WVhen such are cast down by the rocky
roadside "they shall hear my words,'
says David, and they will be sweet
The psalmist's experience, when hunt
ed as a partridge, taught him how tc
appreciate the petitions of Jonathan
--his friend, whose words to him were
"sweet." A careful reading of verst
seven reveals David's dire extremit:
(see Am. R. V.). Death stared hin
in the face. His soul was torn as "ont
ploweth and cleaveth the earth."
IV. Protection. "In thee do I put m:
trust" (R. V.). Though thus br9ugh
low David knew where to turf, an<
one to whom he could look. TIh<
church of Christ needs to look t<
God, to become like him. It needs th<
transforming, encouraging, energizin:
vision. David is now taking his eyet
off the difficulties and fixing them oi
the one wvho enables him to over
come. "Look unto me and be ye
saved." Literally his prayer i1
"make not my soul naked" or "poul
not out my soul."
Whoever else a man harms by his
sin he harms himself most.
Saloonkeepers and their sons me
frequently fill the grave of the drunk
Gamblers nearly all lose their eas:
"They that take the sword p,erisl
by the sword." Our only safety is J
God is constantly answering thil
last prayer, and we do see the wicket
falling into their own nets (Ps. 7:
15:16; 37:14, 15; E~x. 7:10).
This lesson has a strong temperance
suggestion and application. (1) Pray
ers that God will hear; (2) Prepara
tion of the mouth and heart; (3) Pe
tition for reproof to learn thereby
(4) Protection from temptation .n
