Psalm 86: 1-17 Hear me, Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy.
2 Guard my life, for I am faithful to you; save your servant who trusts in you. You are my God; 3 have mercy on me, Lord, for I call to you all day long. 4 Bring joy to your servant, Lord, for I put my trust in you.
5 You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you. 6 Hear my prayer, Lord; listen to my cry for mercy. 7 When I am in distress, I call to you, because you answer me.
8 Among the gods there is none like you, Lord; no deeds can compare with yours. 9 All the nations you have made will come and worship before you; they will bring glory to your name. 10 For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God.
11 Teach me your way, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness;
give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. 12 I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever.
13 For great is your love toward me;you have delivered me from the depths, from the realm of the dead.
14 Arrogant foes are attacking me, O God; ruthless people are trying to kill me— they have no regard for you. 15 But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness. 16 Turn to me and have mercy on me; show your strength in behalf of your servant; save me, because I serve you just as my mother did.
17 Give me a sign of your goodness, that my enemies may see it and be put to shame, for you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.
David's prayer can be your prayer this day and every day.
David's prayer reminds us ALL of our need for God in our lives everyday and in every circumstances of life.
Because of our daily need for God we should always be driven to pray to the Lord our God for He alone has the answers to the questions and concerns we desperately stand in need of.
Our God is the all wise God who made the heavens, the earth and you and I. The God of all creation.
There is no question that we could imagine that God does not have an answer for, therefore, we should daily put forth the effort to seek ye first the Lord our God in all our ways and in all our affairs with the confidence that He will hear, answer, lead, guide and direct us along the path that He predestined for us to travel in life.
It is the Lord our God through His Holy Spirit that we are given the much needed strength and ability to press through the obstacles of life and keep going. It is God who has made us and not we ourselves. He knows all about us and all our needs. He knows every stand of hair on our heads, he knows our thoughts before we even think on them.
Faith in God is the key to life. He is the one who is able to open door no man can shut and shut doors no man can open.
In reading this Psalm we see where David gives glory and praise to the Lord His God throughout it's entirety.
Believe it or not but we ALL need God. These perilous times and evil days in which we now live is proof that we need God more than we realize.
We need God's mercy and we need to seek God for it!
People of God, it is time to get serious about establishing an ongoing daily prayer life with God.
We as the people of God need to daily and often pray individually and corporately as a body of Believers. Why? Jesus declares in Matthew 18:20 For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them."
Prayers of the righteous will produce results. James 5:16b-. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man accomplishes much.
People of God, pray and give thanks IN everything for the Lord our God does hear and answers prayers.
People of God, It is the will of God that we pray and faint not. Do not quit, do not give up!
Pray about everything for it is the will of God concerning us in Christ Jesus.
God bless and do tell the Lord thank you for being a prayer answering God.
