“But I pray to you, O Lord, in the time of your favor, in your great love, O God, answer me with your sure salvation. Rescue me from the mire, do not do not let me sink; deliver me from those who hate me, from the deep waters.” Psalms 69: 13, 14
Praying to the Lord in his favor is powerful. In his great love ask God to answer you with his sure salvation. He will rescue you from mire. Mire is described as a swampy area of wetland that could include muddy sink holes. A life without Christ is like mire. The sink holes and swampy areas represent the hopeless and devastation of life when Jesus is not at the center of one’s mind and soul. Life is already hard on a regular basis, but it’s even harder without Jesus Christ. Jesus will deliver us from those who hate us (the haters) and from deep waters (trouble). Let him take the mire and quick sand out of your life and grant you favor. Allow him to do all of that for you now. Trust Him.
