In Psalm 119 the longest of all the Psalms David uses a phrase 11 times. It depends what translation you have. Psalm 119:25 it says “Quicken thou me according to thy word”. NIV says “preserve my life according you word” and the passion translation says “Revive me according to your word”

This is no doubt one of the secrets of David’s life. He prayed and used this phrase 11 times in this psalm alone. Its good to know what to pray for. He’s praying for the quickening or increasing of the divine life in in his spirit soul and body. He’s praying for more of Gods divine quickening, more life, increased life. He understood this divine quickening came from Gods word. Jesus said in the Gospel of John “the words I speak to you are spirit and life. David knew that secret with regards to the Torah. This is a comprehensive and inspired prayer. Quicken me according to your word. Notice the quickening the reviving is as David said according to the word of God or comes by the word of God because the Spirit of God the Holy Spirit inspired the word of God. It says all scripture is inspired by the word of God. The Spirit of God quickens us according to our trust in the word of God so when we pray this way, we know we are praying according to His will therefore we can obtain the answer. We need quickening every day so begin to ask Him every day. All his promises are yes and amen in Christ Jesus. The promises contain all the divine life we need
