Restoration Prayer

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Psalm 80:1-19

Psalm 80 puts before us yet another prayer dealing with Israel experiencing hardship as a result of turning away from God. The psalmist begins by recognizing God for His greatness and past actions, he then talks with God about the hardships which He has brought on them because of the people's sinful actions, and then implores God to please turn again to look on His people and save them.

What does this psalm reveal about turning away from God? What did you see or learn from this psalm about repentance and seeking God's forgiveness? Tami

Psalms 80 reveals that turning away from God is caused by sin against Him. Separation from God.

Before repentance and forgiveness from God can happen:
Recognizing God's holiness and His wrath on sin.
Seeing their helplessness, unfaithfulness and disobedience towards God.Knowing that God was Who they needed!!
Asking God for help, to save them!
In Psa.80:3,7,18: "Let your face shine,that we may be saved!"
In verses 18b and 19:"Then we shall not turn back from you;
give us life, and we will call upon your name!
Restore us, O Lord God of hosts!

The prayer is about repenting of their sins and to restore to a permanent relationship with God,was not a "just-for-this time" only one.
May this be my daily prayer!
