Psalm 5

Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my sighing. Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray. In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.

Psalm 4

Answer me when I call to you, O my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; be merciful to me and hear my prayer. How long, O men, will you turn my glory into shame? How long will you love delusions and seek false gods? Know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself; the LORD will hear when I call to him. In your anger do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent. Offer right sacrifices and trust in the LORD.

Psalm 2

Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the Lord and against His Anointed One. “Let us break their chains,” they say, “and throw off their fetters.”

The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. Then he rebukes them in His anger and terrifies them in His wrath, saying, “I have installed My King on Zion, my Holy Hill.”

Lord, Teach Us To Pray

A few weeks ago a guest speaker came to our church with an interesting insight on the Lord’s Prayer. Taking line by line, he showed us how to turn it from something we know by heart and can recite without thinking into an impassioned personal discussion with the Lord that can last as long as we want.

The Law Of Displacement

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

How To Win Your Crowns … Part 2
If you follow our “Ask A Bible Teacher” feature you know that folks write in from time to time for advice on overcoming bad habits. Along with all of its exciting prophecy, uplifting promises and inspirational stories, the Bible contains some very practical tools designed to free us from the bondage of our old lives. After all, to use a computer analogy, our flesh (sin nature) is like an operating system that’s been built out of the habits and attitudes we’ve acquired. When we’re saved we can upgrade, and the Bible shows us how.

The Gospel According To Paul … Part 10

This entry is part 10 of 12 in the series Romans

We began this series from the perspective that our time is short and we should make sure we’re ordering what’s left of it around the Lord’s priorities for us. It won’t be long before the life we’ve worked so hard to build for ourselves here will be left behind. All that will remain is the treasure we’ve stored up in Heaven.
