Prayer Structure

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Psalm 90:1-17

Psalm 90 is a prayer by Moses, a man who had an exceptionally personal and close relationship with God. What a privilege it is to see an example of how this great and godly man approached God in prayer. One of the things I notice right away is how in the first half of this prayer, Moses is recognizing God for who He is--all-powerful, all-knowing, loving, not bound by human time and present at all times. It's only after telling God what Moses knows about Him that Moses then turns to his requests--asking God to satisfy the people with His constant and steadfast love, to make them rejoice and be glad, to let His favor be upon them and to establish the work of their hands.

How does telling God what you know about Him help you get perspective? What impact does praising God as you start your prayers have on your attitude, and ultimately how and what you communicate with God? Tami

How does telling God what you know about Him help you get perspective?

I believe, it gives me confidence to pray to God Whom I know is everlasting and is holy. The God Who know my secret sins, Who hates sins, but has made it possible through His Son the forgiveness of sin because of His great love, grace and mercy towards me. God has never changed, I can trust and depend on Him
This God is the One Whom I can pray to boldly about anything!

It set my heart and mood in a thankful spirit to the Lord which seems to diminish my complaining spirit as I communion with Him.
Thankful Lord for Your Love and Your Word!

This quote seems to me to sum up Psalms 90.

"The only way for your fleeting life to have value is to live it wisely before the eternal God and to avoid His wrath against your sin by taking refuge in the mercy He offers in the cross of Jesus Christ." Steven J. Cole pastor
