What Is Psalms 109 Used For?
Psalms 109 is a psalm of thanksgiving and supplication composed by David who was king of Israel and is addressed to God, who had delivered him from his enemies.
The psalm consists of two parts that are: an expression of gratitude to God for sparing him and delivering him from his enemies and a prayer for the prosperity of those he loved and for the welfare of his people.
Psalms 109 is mainly used when praying for God to deliver you from the hands and mouth of the wicked who seek to run your life as was the case for David.
It’s also used to give thanks to the Lord when He delivers you from your enemies as we see David do when he was delivered from his enemies who wanted him dead who were against him.
