PRAYER

Blessings come from obeying God

JOHN 3:16 GOD'S PRECIOUS GIFT TO ALL!

When and how do you pray?

Psalm 92[a] KJV

A psalm. A song. For the Sabbath day.

It is good to praise the Lord
    and make music to your name, O Most High,
proclaiming your love in the morning
    and your faithfulness at night,
to the music of the ten-stringed lyre
    and the melody of the harp.

For you make me glad by your deeds, Lord;
    I sing for joy at what your hands have done.

 

Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 92:1 In Hebrew texts 92:1-15 is numbered 92:2-16.

Giving thanks morning and night

What a way to start the day! The verses in Psalm 92 represent one of the first prayers on the priests’ lips on the Sabbath day: “You thrill me, Lord, with all you have done for me!”

What if before you read your morning paper, before you head out the door, before you start the countless tasks you have to do for each day, you determine that you’re going to start your day with praise for how God has “thrilled” you? Right now, you have the chance to start afresh. A new day is before you. Why not start things off right with a regimen of praise instead of the old routine? In prayer today, proclaim his unfailing love, and tonight, before going to bed, praise him again for his faithfulness.
