This beautiful elegy was written in the era of Israel's great national distress. The Psalmist is crying out in prayer for God to Restore His favour upon His people.
The Psalmist refers to Israel as a fruitful vine that was transplanted from Egypt and carefully tended by God. Consequently this vine flourished profusely and spread it's branches laden with fruit in all directions.
But alas, the vine no longer receives the Divine Gardener's tender care and subsequently it is abandoned to the abuse of those who disregard it and have ruined it. The Psalmist continues in earnest Prayer for God to rescue the vine from total destruction.
So whether or not you are experiencing challenges that makes you question God's presence in your life. Please join us on Prayers of Hope as we rekindle and fan the flames of faith in our God who loves to bless His people and graciously shines His face upon them so that they may experience His peace.
