Prayer pointers from Psalms 42-43

Posted: August 08, 2011 by Joshua Knott

Father, Son, Holy Spirit, we long for you. We long to be with your people, surrounding your throne, singing your praises for all eternity. We long to be home with you. Cause our eyes of faith to rest upon that great and glorious future that is ours through Christ. Father, thank you for the foretastes of heaven we enjoy here on earth, for the fellowship of believers, for the proclamation of your word, for the joy of corporate worship, for the comfort of your Spirit, for the countless blessings purchased for us through Christ,… Father, we come to you on behalf of those whose hearts are weary and souls are cast down. Cause them to constantly pour out their souls to you in prayer and so walk with you in the darkness they feel. Remind us that every trial comes to us through the pierced hands of your love. Assure your struggling people that you are able to restore and renew the souls of your people regardless of where you have put them. We especially pray for the spiritual renewal of these dear ones today…

Father, this world is not our home. Everyday we are reminded of this truth as the world, the flesh, and the devil oppress your people from within and without. Help us live by faith and not by sight when we find ourselves oppressed. Help us cry out to you “I believe, help my unbelief” as we wrestle with fears and doubts. Enable us to not only rest in the glorious gospel of Christ, but build our lives upon the solid foundation of your Word. Father, make us once again a people so rooted in the truth of your word we are unmoved as we live for you in this world…
