Sometimes I feel as if the book of Pslams was written just for me, for just a time as this. The chapters written by David typically hit home especially. He wrote with such emotion and wasn’t afraid to be raw with God. But his prayers were always laced with PRAISE!
I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart;
I will glorify your name forever. —Psalms 86:12 NIV
I chuckled to myself when I read the last word…FOREVER. Am I the only one who always hears that word spoken in the voice of Squints from the movie The Sandlot?
Forever is a very long time. It is impossible to even phathom just how long that is. But David, being the ever poetic man he was, pledges he will glorify the name of his God FOREVER. Not just in the good times, but forever. Not just when he feels like it, but forever. Not just when it’s convenient, but forever.
ASK—When was the last time you glorified the name of the Lord? Have you created conditions for your praise?
Not sure how to start a prayer conversation with God? I strongly suggest beginning. The Psalms…maybe chapter 86
