Title: The Prayers that Unite the Church
Series: Special Guest
Author: Steve Garrett
How can we confidently pray in ways that align with God’s will?
What words can we use when ours seem feeble and inadequate?
Where do we look for prayers that capture the state of the brokenhearted?
When our hearts and minds fail, we can pray through the Psalms…in these beautiful passages we find every position of the human heart – celebration, lamentation and everything in between.
1 Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the [a]ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he [b]meditates day and night.
3 He shall be like a tree
Planted by the [c]rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
4 The ungodly are not so,
But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the ungodly shall perish.
Psalm 1:1-6 (NKJV)
