Praying

Verse 3: "May he remember all your sacrifices and accept your burnt offerings. Selah"

The key words in verse 3 are "remember" and "accept".

The Psalmist is aware that blessing comes from obedience.

Joni Eareckson Tada says: "Like art, like music, like so many other disciplines, prayer can only be appreciated when you actually spend time in it. Spending time with the Master will elevate your thinking. The more you pray, the more will be revealed. You will understand. You will smile and nod your head as you identify with others who fight long battles and find great joy on their knees.

Verse 4: "May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed."

This is request 5 in a series of 6 requests made by the congregation for the king who is preparing to go to war.

Request 5: "May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed."

Proverbs 16:9: "In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps" (NIV).

Proverbs 19:21: "Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails" (NIV).

Isaiah 14:24: "The Lord Almighty has sworn, 'Surely, as I have planned, so it will be, and as I have purposed, so it will stand' (NIV).

Isaiah 14:27: "For the Lord Almighty has purposed, and who can thward him? His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?" (NIV)

Francois Fanelon said: "If God bores you, tell him that he bores you; that you prefer the vilest amusements to his presence; that you only feel at your ease when you are far from him."

Let's celebrate the victory of our Lord Jesus Christ upon the cross by singing a verse of "Victory in Jesus":
I heard an old, old story, How a Savior came from glory,
How He gave His life on Calvary to save a wretch like me;
I heard about His groaning, Of His precious blood's atoning,
Then I repented of my sins and won the victory.

Refrain
O victory in Jesus, My Savior forever,
He sought me and bought me
With His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him and all my love is due Him,
He plunged me to victory, Beneath the cleansing flood.
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
