Prayer with Power

Wednesdays: The Psalms
Psalm 21

Click or touch “Firestarter”
To listen to Nick read the one-minute introduction.

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.

One thought on “Prayer with Power

  1. Since we are all kings and queens in Christ, how about taking this psalm and putting the first person personal pronoun wherever you find the word “King.”
