I love the dependence of the Psalmist here. He starts in thanksgiving to God, remembering all God has done for them; then moves to petition asking God for restoration; then moves to anticipating salvation; then moves to hope.
How often do I find myself in this prayer filled flow where I need to recall all that God has done which reminds me of how far removed I have become from His will and purposes so I cry out for His restoration, His salvation and this again leads me to hope because I know the faithfulness of my Father in heaven.
I find this a natural flow in prayer and one that has enabled and empowered me often. If you’re ever stuck in prayer then give it a go!!!
Father I want to thank You for Your faithfulness and love. You are magnificent in all things and I come to You as the only hope of Salvation in every aspect of my life!
