Even dust can turn into a hero by prayer
By Dr. Moses Lee
Let me send you ‘Psalm 90’ on behalf of 2016’s Christmas card.
Psalm 90, the song of Moses
Title : Even dust can turn into a hero by prayer - only by prayer, constantly in prayer
I. God is our dwelling place
1: Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations.
II. The Lord is our everlasting God
2: Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
III. "Return to dust, O sons of men."
3: You turn men back to dust, saying, "Return to dust, O sons of men."
4: For a thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night.
5: You sweep men away in the sleep of death; they are like the new grass of the morning
6: though in the morning it springs up new, by evening it is dry and withered.
7: We are consumed by your anger and terrified by your indignation.
8: You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your presence.
9: All our days pass away under your wrath; we finish our years with a moan.
10: The length of our days is seventy years-- or eighty, if we have the strength; yet their span is but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away.
11: Who knows the power of your anger? For your wrath is as great as the fear that is due you.
IV. Even man like dust can pray
1. Prayer for the wisdom to number our days
12: Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom
2. Prayer for restoration
13: Relent, O LORD! How long will it be? Have compassion on your servants
3. Prayer for genuine satisfaction
14: Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
4. Prayer for reversal of life (Compensation)
15: Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, for as many years as we have seen trouble.
5. Prayer for display of God
16: May your deeds be shown to your servants, your splendor to their children.
6. Prayer for the favor of the Lord
17-a: May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us;
7. Prayer for the enforceing our labor
17-b: establish the work of our hands for us-- yes, establish the work of our hands.
I’ll pray all my life.
I’ll pray without ceasing.
I’ll pray forever.
I'll pray 3 hours a day, 7 hours a day
Prayer is the work of God
God works when we only pray
