This psalm is a prayer by David and can be our prayer to God today. What does it really mean to lift up the soul to God? For one thing it reminds us that our praying and our worship should not be a matter of the words that we use. And it is certainly not a matter of our bodily actions. If our prayer and worship is to be worth anything, it must involve our inner being, our whole soul. It must not be physical but spiritual. If in our worship our souls make contact with God, then there is true joy and satisfaction. Then we can confidently pray as David did.
