Listen to a confident cry in the power of God to save. Pray it riding on the faith and joy of the psalmist and on the joy of the first disciples waiting in praise in the Temple. Christ the Lord has finally entered into the New Jerusalem. Breathe the stability and the security of God’s saving grace.
Pray with ever deepening confidence. Be sensitive to those transition points of the day. Pause to pray verses that will re-energize your activity. God’s power and grace come against melancholy, depression, resentment, or any other de-energized state of soul. As so many whacks in karate, your very being is loosened and made receptive to the power of God lifting you on high.
What are these?
Lord, I rejoice in Your strength. v. 1
You give me my heart’s desire. v. 2
Thank you, Lord, for length of days. v. 4
Glad with joy in Your presence v. 6
