Each week for this season our devotions will be centered around the practice of PRAYER. Like the disciples we too have the opportunity to ask Jesus, “Lord, teach us to pray.” We encourage you to read all prayers and Psalms out loud – let the words of Scripture fill your prayers!
1 If the Lord himself had not been on our side, now may Israel say:
if the Lord himself had not been on our side, when men rose up against us,
2 Then would they have swallowed us up alive,
when they were so wrathfully displeased with us;
3 Then the waters would have drowned us, and the torrent gone over us;
then the raging waters would have gone clean over us.
4 But praised be the Lord,
who has not given us over to be prey for their teeth.
5 We escaped like a bird out of the snare of the fowler;
the snare is broken, and we have been delivered.
6 Our help is in the Name of the Lord,
the maker of heaven and earth.
Lord, I confess that I do not see the spiritual battle we are in. As a result, I have not been alert. As a result, I have not stood firm against the lies of the enemy. Please forgive me. Renew me. Forgive US. Renew US.
