Biblical Prayer Focus

Psalm 65:5-8  “By awesome deeds you answer us with righteousness, O God of our salvation, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas; the one who by his strength established the mountains, being girded with might; who stills the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves, the tumult of the peoples, so that those who dwell at the ends of the earth are in awe at your signs. You make the going out of the morning and the evening to shout for joy.”

Consider when you have stood by the raging waters or saw a video of a volcano erupting and then worship God Who is far greater . . . it is by His strength that these things happen. Be in awe at the signs of God’s presence in creation. Thank Him, knowing that He cares for the tiny sparrow and you are worth far more to Him than that!
