Psalm 61:2 From the end of the earth I will cry to You, When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
Daily we come to the Lord with prayers of petition for all types of situations and circumstances of life that we deal with on a daily basis.
We often pray for family, friends, our enemies, our future, ministry, our brothers and sisters in Christ, the unbelievers, our nation, leaders, government, the world, for our needs and sometimes our wants and on and on praying to God with one request after another.
In all our prayers, there is not any other prayer that forces or pushes us with urgency to God than when sickness, death, trouble or tragedy shows up.
When life moves from normal to abnormal, from calm to chaos, when troubles of various kinds have become overwhelmed, when the test, trials and tribulations of life unexpectedly strikes, we somehow seem to find the strength and wisdom need to go to God in prayer that is not of the ordinary or norm, but prayer that is full of fervency with urgency.
Luke 18:1-One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up.
In this text, we find David crying out to God for deliverance from that which has overwhelmed him.
David knew that God was His "ROCK, SALVATION, AND FIRM FOUNDATION" therefore, he cries out to Him in prayer.
Are you in a situation that is causing your to cry out for the "ROCK" that is higher than you? Like David, are you gonna seek Him out? If you do, He will lead you directly to where He is.
God's loving kindness, His grace and His mercy has no expiration date. Call on Him for He promises to hear and answer your prayers.
When my heart is overwhelmed, lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
God, we declare on today with conviction, power and authority that you are our Rock, our Firm Foundation, our salvation, our Solid Rock.
Here my cry o Lord! Is this your prayer to the Father on today?
Regardless of the situation you may have found yourself in as you arose this morning, lean on the rock name Jesus, who is the Chief Corner Stone. You can lean on Him and He won't let you fall.
Lord, we thank you for being our firm foundation, our salvation, our Solid Rock.
OVERWHELMED? PRAY! The Lord your God is your Firm Foundation, your Solid Rock, call on Him saints!
Lord, thank you for leading us to the "ROCK" that is higher than us when we are overwhelmed.
People of God, in your time of feeling overwhelmed, do not become a victim of despair, but a "warrior" in prayer.
When our heart is overwhelmed Lord, lead us to the "ROCK" that is higher than us O Lord.
Thank you Lord for hearing and answering our prayer.
Thank you Lord for your presence and your power that always carry us through.
Indeed, you are the "ROCK" that is higher than us. You are the "ROCK" of our salvation and we love you Lord.
Overwhelmed? Run to the "SOLID ROCK." He is a "FIRM FOUNDATION"!
