All God’s People – Prayer of an anonymous Abbess

Quit the mind and ask Him in.


Prayer of an Anonymous Abbess:

“Lord, thou knowest better than myself that I am growing older and will soon be old. Keep me from becoming too talkative, and especially from the unfortunate habit of thinking that I must say something on every subject and at every opportunity.

This majestic yet reflective psalm is the oldest of all psalms. The superscript of the psalm identifies it as “a prayer of Moses, the man of God.” While we are not directly told to do so, it is helpful to consider this psalm as the dying song of this man of God, as he reflected back on his long life, including the forty years in Egypt, the forty years in Midian, and most importantly the recent forty years of wilderness wanderings. As we survey this psalm, think of Moses pondering his life’s work shortly before he died.
