"The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee... Now know I that the Lord saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand. Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God."
(Psalms 20:1, 6-7 KJV)
When you pray from your heart to Our Awesome God it does something to you personally, no matter what you are praying. It gives you the opportunity to unburden your heart to someone who already knows your thoughts and burdens so God or Jesus Christ will not be shocked when you tell Him. He wants to take those burdens away from you anyway.
Tense Times are Times for Prayer! This is a fundamental and very important fact. Where do we turn for help? If it isn't the right place, if wrong there may not be any help. Do you remember how the Israelites were always getting in trouble with other nations and turning to Egypt for help? The Israelites were looking in the wrong place for help so they didn't find it.. "Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God." (Psalms 20:7 KJV) Prayers should be directed to Our Awesome God for the right answer and help from Him.
1). Prayer seeks an answer from God. Our prayers need to be detailed and specific with our expecting an answer.
2). Prayer requires all our focus and concentration. The tension and pressures that are around us when something unusual happens make it hard to complete our jobs and be productive. We need to focus on our prayers to Our Awesome God. So pray when you can focus and tell Him exactly what you want. He will give you what you need!
God will hear your prayer if you focus on Him and seek an answer to your problem. Tell Him the problem in detail, as you understand it. Allow Our Awesome God to use His "saving strength of his right hand" for your problems. It always helps when you attend a church that prays frequently and before and after each worship session. God wants your prayers!
We (as a church) want all people in church, worshipping Our Awesome God with faith and obedience every Sunday. If you are not yet a Christian, it is time that you should know and love Our Awesome God as your Creator and Savior. Join us at Living Word Baptist Church as we pray and worship Him this Sunday at 10:30 AM and at 6:00 to 7:00 PM for Bible Study along with AWANA for children lasting until 7:30 PM. On Wednesdays, we meet at 7:00 PM for Prayer Requests and a Bible Study follows until 8:00 PM. We love visitors!
