THEME: GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS
Psalms 20:1-6 NKJV
“May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble; May the name of the God of Jacob defend you; May He send you help from the sanctuary, And strengthen you out of Zion; May He remember all your offerings, And accept your burnt sacrifice. Selah May He grant you according to your heart’s desire, And fulfill all your purpose. We will rejoice in your salvation, And in the name of our God we will set up our banners! May the Lord fulfill all your petitions. Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven With the saving strength of His right hand.”
-This Psalm of David delivers hope to the troubled and reassures the believer of God’s sure help. David speaks of the God of Jacob who delivers in times of distress (Genesis 35:3). When God delivers help, this is a source of strength and responds according to our hearts desires, and His great purpose for our lives. God remembers the sacrifices that we offer as from old, and receive our prayers as incense (Revelation 5:8). David declares with a statement of faith saying “now I know” to reassure that God surely answers prayers without fail. This is the confidence that we have before God, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us (1 John 5:14).
Dear Lord Jesus we thank You for this far that You have brought us and the far that You are taking us. We count our blessings and name them one by one. We honor You Lord and exult Your name dear Jesus. We say thank You for the gift of life and for the air that we breathe. We come to You dear Savior with humility in our hearts and thanksgiving in our lips. We thank You dear Jesus for You have reassured us that You hear our prayers and answer us. May You supply all our needs according to Your riches in glory. May You remember all our sacrifices and release Your dew of heaven upon us, and rebuke the devourer on our behalf, dear Heavenly Father. May You protect us from trouble and strengthen us in our walk of faith. May You answer our prayers and hearts desires dear Jesus. We honor You Lord and rejoice in Your salvation, now and forever. Amen
