Chapter 9: Part 7 ~ Installment 75

This week I would like us to consistently pray God would bless all our churches, in a way that will bring glory and honor to Him. Let us remember that Christ is the head of the body, and that each of us needs to seek His will for us. This isn't just the responsibility of the leadership, but of each of us - for this is the body the Lord has given us.

Most importantly let us seek, through our prayers, to grow closer in fellowship with our Father. Let us truly hunger and thirst after an ever-growing depth in our relationship with Him.

Psalm 63

A psalm of David.

When he was in the Desert of Judah

O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body
longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water.

I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory.
Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.

I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.

My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my
mouth will praise you.

On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night.
Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings.

My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.

They who seek my life will be destroyed; they will go down to the depths of
the earth.

They will be given over to the sword and become food for jackals.

But the king will rejoice in God; all who swear by God's name will praise
him, while the mouths of liars will be silenced.


"This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us" (1 John 5:14).
