King David wrote in Psalm 122:1: “I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.”

Hymn—“Redeemed”

Scripture Reading—Psalm 119:173-176

“Let thine hand help me; for I have chosen thy precepts. I have longed for thy salvation, O LORD; and thy law is my delight. Let my soul live, and it shall praise thee; and let thy judgments help me. I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments.”

Hymn—“Dear Lord, Remember Me”

Opening Prayer

Hymn—“O Lord, My Best Desire Fulfill”

Sermon—“Petition For Deliverance”

——————————-
Some of the points covered in this sermon:
• Reviewing the main structure of Psalm 119:169-176
• Highlighting the main structure of Psalm 119:173-176—a twofold statement on a petition for help, and a twofold statement on a confession of hope
• Explaining the connection between the ‘hand’ and ‘judgments’ of the Lord helping His people
• Aligning this petition for deliverance with the framework of sovereign grace
• Explaining how the terms ‘precepts’, ‘law’ and ‘commandments’ refer to the gospel law under the authority of the gracious covenant, rather than the heart law under the authority of the covenant works, or the ten commandments under the authority of the Mosaic covenant

Hymn—“How Oft, Alas, This Wretched Heart”

Closing Prayer

Benediction

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God the Father, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, be with us all. Amen.
