“I pray to You, God my Rock. Don’t turn a deaf ear to me. For if You are silent, I might as well give up and die. Listen to my prayer for mercy as I cry out for Your help, as I lift my hands towards Your holy sanctuary.” – Psalm 28:1-2.
“Praise the LORD! For He has heard my cry for mercy. The LORD is my strength and shield. I TRUST HIM WITH ALL MY HEART. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving. The LORD gives His people strength. He is a safe fortress for His anointed king.” – Psalm 28:6-8.
“Save your people! Bless Israel, your special possession. Lead them like a shepherd, and carry them in your arms forever.” – Psalm 28:9.
Take note of David’s attitude in this prayer. He got his heart right. Believed or just knew God has done it as a result he praises God.
This is PRAY. BELIEVE. RECEIVE – in action.
And then close to the end, David has emptied himself so much so that God’s compassion pours out. He prays what God fills his heart with.
He intercedes for his people.
Prayer brings growth and wisdom. Prayer teaches you patience. Prayer makes you strong.
It doesn’t change God – He is I AM and He is Unchanging. He is Uncreated. Prayer is for you, to empower you. For you to speak and hear from God that you may walk this journey with it’s many obstacles armed with the peace of God.
Pray more. You’ll overcome more. “Much prayer. Much power”
