TIDINGS OF GRACE

“Hear my prayer, O Lord, give ear to my supplications: in thy faithfulness answer me, and in they righteousness."
                                                     Psalm 143:1

 


Dear Church Family,


In Psalm 143, David, Israel’s warrior/king, is crying out to God in prayer.  In verse 1, he cries: “Hear my prayer, O Lord, give ear to my supplications: in thy faithfulness answer me, and in thy righteousness.”  And this does not seem to be any ordinary, hurry up kind of prayer.  David is some sort of emotional crisis; verse 3; “For the enemy hath persecuted my soul…” either Satan or some mortal enemy is giving David fits.  And verse 4; “Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is desolate.”  And notice also, David is fervently, pointedly seeking the Lord; verse 5, “I meditate on all thy works…” and verse 6, “I stretch forth my hands unto thee: my soul thirsteth after thee…” And then read verses 7 through 11: “Hear me…Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning…Deliver me…Teach me…Quicken me…”  David is pleading for God to do something; and not merely something for him, but also something to him and with him.  David wants to be taught, revived, and delivered from whatever enemy is after him. 
I really believe that at the beginning of year 2019 of our Lord, it would be wise for us to be praying like David. Our enemy, Satan, is working overtime.  Would you join me in praying for God to teach, revive, and use each one of us, as members of His church, for His glory?
 
Lovingly,
