Scripture: Psalm 7:9-13
The Psalms are full of the judicial concept described in the New Testament as axios. We could call them the “weigh-and-pray” part of David’s life. In this part, he went before the Throne, invoked the covenant and asked God to pay to certain individuals what they had weighed out to him. It is the “weigh-and-pray” part of the Psalms. The Psalms were full of “weigh-and-pray” prayers. In the New Testament, we would call them axios prayers. They are Holy Spirit led judicial interventions that are asked for at the Throne. David consistently prayed these because he had the covenant of Sure Mercy. It is the very same covenant Jesus guaranteed to us in Acts 13. How many “weigh-and-pray” prayers have we uttered? Isn’t it time we entered this realm?
