In the name of God Master, of the Universe, Ruler of the earth
Editors Note: Beloved we come with a sincere prayer of thanks, repentance and for deliverance from any manner of evil and things not pleasing to God. We realize that all of humankind has prayer power that seeks out God with a sincere heart. No big pocketbooks have more prayer power. Nor do those that own many houses and land. We serve a good and just God a God with no respecter of persons. The God we serve lifts up all of humankind rich, poor, Black, White, Brown, Red and Yellow with His promise of love and Truth that endureth forever.
There is no Green power with God. Nowhere in His word does God promise a greater blessing to those that lay much material things upon an altar that Christ Jesus came to remove when He went to the Cross. Jesus Christ is the High Priest. There is no longer a Levitical Priesthood to pay homage to and place grain, crops and live stock at their feet.
“John had $2, that was all he had he gave it to the poor realizing that he had already bought bread for his house. Meanwhile Mr. Roberts gave$200 to the poor who put his name up on a sign board. He had storehouse full of food and gave not from his heart but for recognition from man thinking God also paid him any attention.”
Peace be unto you. To the Church (the Church of Christ Jesus the Prophets and Apostles) and believing Christians everywhere. To those that believe in the Bible (the Spirit of God) as the supreme authority that governs all of humankind. In this we give thanks to God the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit that leads and guides us the straightway.
Beloved our prayer this morning is an unselfish prayer. We pray that those among us and people throughout the world will come to Christ. No matter what problems you might have Christ Jesus is the answer. We also come proclaiming the great blessing that is rendered to those that look to prayer. Therefore we suggest that you especially read, study and digest the prayerful scripture found in Psalms. God will answer a morning, noon day or a prayer at bedtime or at midnight. But here we find David our beloved brother praying in the morning. Can we establish a closer relationship with God through our morning prayers? What is the difference in a morning prayer and one at midnight?
Follow us now to the 5th Division of Psalms. Our primary verses are 1-3 however we will include the 4th verse. We also strongly recommend that you read and study this entire Psalms of 12 powerful verses. God is able and will protect us from the lies of our enemies. Thus we look to a morning prayer for guidance and inspiration to endure.
Psalms 5: 1-3: “Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my mediation.”
“Hearken unto the voice of my cry my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.”
What can we gain from the first two verses here? We come praying as did David. Therefore we pray earnestly and recognize God as the King. We are also reminded that many come allegedly professing that God is King but rely on man for their wants and needs. They also go to man first instead of the Lord in prayer. Thus we are grateful once more than once for another powerful message of hope and joy found when we read and study God’s Word. Glory to God.
Now follow us to several other important cross references to the thought noted at our first verse.
Psalms 54:2: Reveals that God is our helper. We can also call upon Him to help us overcome our enemies.
“Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth.”
Hear and give ear are similar and like expressions. Thus we see these words meaning to give David relief from the things that troubled him. So we can call on the Lord for the many things that trouble us. However as we walk in the Spirit many things will cease to trouble us they become the troubles of the oppressor and those that are lost. Look my beloved to carry no man’s burdens of transgressions.
Psalms 84: 3: Beloved there is great joy in dwelling and communing with God. This presence helps us to grow and also renders a good note for a prayer request.
“Yea the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O Lord of hosts, my King, and my God.”
The figurative reference to the sparrow and swallow once again shows the interest God has with the smallest and lowest creatures of the wild. See when Jesus teaches this same principle of a humble posture at Matthew 10: 29. The poor the hungry those that are mired in poverty also have a voice with God. Let no man believe that only the rich and those that despise and look down on the poor are lifted up in the Lord. Brethren we all must look up.
Psalms 5: 3 “My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.”
Here we see David showing that he lived a devoted life to the Lord. He begins his daily activities first with a prayer to the Lord. Beloved this is how we can establish a closer relationship with the Lord when we talk with Him in the morning. Now look to several other scriptural references in Psalms that speak to this point.
Psalms 88: 13: Brethren this Psalms teaches us to cry out about our deepest misery. Even when there seems to be no relief in sight remember God understands our plea.
“But unto thee have I cried, Lord; and in the morning shall my prayer prevent thee.”
One meaning for the original word for prevent here is very important to note. Thus we find the word precede. So in the morning when David prayed he offered a prayer to precede the favors he expected to get from God throughout the day.
Psalms 130: 5: Here we find scripture that assures us of the Lord’s forgiveness. However we have to confess our sins. “My soul waiteth for the Lord.” This is a powerful Psalms we suggest that you read and study all 8 verses.
“I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.”
We will conclude our discussion on establishing a closer relationship with God through prayer with the 4th verse found at our primary scripture Psalms 5.
Psalms 5: 4: “For thou are not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness; neither shall evil dwell with thee.”
(Also see Psalms 11:5 & 34: 16).
David in a sound mind ascribes the purest of principles to the Lord. Therefore he seeks to also remain pure and dwell not in things wicked. Doing this he must be mindful to not allow those that are wicked to dwell within us. So many beloved go about life trying to please man instead of God. Thus we see so many that dwell in evil as they opt for temporary relief from their trials with faith and confidence in man. Stay with the Lord and speak to Him every morning and be blessed.
