A PRAYER FOR GOD'S MERCY, BLESSING AND LIGHT



God's Prayer Power - Session 15


Our scripture today is Psalm 67


"God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah. That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations. Let the people praise thee, God; let all the people praise thee. O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. Selah. Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us. God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.


What is God saying to us?


1. He will bless us.


2. The earth will yield her increase.


3. God will judge the people righteously



This Psalm is  a prayer to God. The prayer is asking God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us. It is also asking God to make His way known upon the earth - which means every where, every nation and His saving health unto all the nations.

I like the boldness in which the Psalmist ask first for these things from God. Then he says, let the people praise you God. Let the nations sing for joy.

If you will read this Psalm carefully, you will see that if we praise God these good things will be done for us. What are they?

1.God will judge the people righteously.
2. He will govern the nations.
3. The earth will yield her increase.
4. He will bless us.


Would you not think that all the people would be willing to praise God for these good things?

Charles Haddon Spurgeon said, " It is strange how little use we make of the spiritual blessings which God gives us, but it is stranger still how little use we make of God himself." 
                                                              

 
Prayer


God be gracious to our country and bless her. Please let Your face shine down upon this land.Let Your salvation come upon us and let Your ways be known on earth.Open the eyes, ears, and hearts of its people to receive You and know You as their Lord and Savior.Stir our hearts and put Your desires in us to want to follow You and praise You.Let all the people praise You.Help us to turn to You, to be glad and to sing for joy.Rule over the people justly and guide our nation with Your hands.Then cause our land to yield its harvest.Bless us oh God.

 INSTRUCTIONS TO NEW CHRISTIANS





God's Prayer Power - Session 14




Our scripture today is 1 Thessalonians 5:12-24




“Dear brothers, honor the officers of your church who work hard among you and warn you against all that is wrong. Think highly of them and give them your wholehearted love because they are straining to help you. And remember, no quarreling among yourselves. Dear brothers, warn those who are lazy, comfort those who are frightened, take tender care of those who are weak, and be patient with everyone. See that no one pays back evil for evil, but always try to do good to each other and to everyone else. Always be joyful. Always keep on praying. No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.

Do not smother the Holy Spirit. Do not scoff at those who prophesy, but test everything that is said to be sure it is true, and if it is, then accept it. Keep away from every kind of evil. May the God of peace himself make you entirely pure and devoted to God; and may your spirit and soul and body be kept strong and blameless until that day when our Lord Jesus Christ comes back again. God, who called you to become his child, will do all this for you, just as he promised. Dear brothers, pray for us. Shake hands for me with all the brothers there. I command you in the name of the Lord to read this letter to all the Christians. And may rich blessings from our Lord Jesus Christ be with you, every one. Sincerely, Paul”
1 Thessalonians 5:12-24
