Today’s passage: Psalm 55
- We can pray more than three times a day. In verse 7, David is claiming to pray, as we would say, around the clock…or “Without ceasing.” (1 Thessalonians 5:17)
- Prayer is only powerful because we pray to a powerful God.
- Proverbs 29:5 – “A man who flatters his neighbor spreads a net for his feet.”
- “If God is for us, who can be against us?” Check out Romans 8:31-39!
Questions to consider:
- How does the immutability of God (God never changes) give you encouragement and hope?
- Why was David compelled to pray so much? What might a lack of prayer in our lives indicate?
- How do we have to view other people in order to begin flattering and backstabbing? How would “loving your neighbor as yourself” keep you from doing those things to others? How would loving your neighbor help you to pray for them and prepare you to forgive after they have hurt you?
