God’s Prayer List

December 21st, 2011

RG AUDIO 122111Psalm 89:19-37

Certainly there is much we can and must say to God in prayer, but Psalm 89 remembers there are also crucial matters on God’s mind. What exactly is on that divine prayer list? Given the quotation attributed to God in verses 19-37, the Lord has turned full attention toward promises regarding the royal lineage of David. Reviewing grace lavished upon David and his heir, the psalmist lets us overhear how God’s choosing, protecting, and blessing the beloved Son of David demonstrates the steadfast love and faithfulness central to our prayer (vv. 2, 14, 33). What is on God’s prayer list? God’s own voice makes clear that what God has done for Israel is what God now intends to do for the world! We are listening to a God who lovingly and faithfully makes and keeps immense promises!

Maybe it’s time for us to compare our prayer list with the one God uses.
