“Say to God, ‘How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies come cringing to you. All the earth worships you and sings praises to you (Psalm 66:3-4).'”
This prayer suggestion comes from one who had been tested and tried, who had carried a crushing burden, and been through fire and water (See Psalm 66:10-12).
Let your trials inspire praise. God will bring you to a place of abundance.
The Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words, according to the will of God (from Romans 8:26-27)
Our Heavenly Father listens to the Spirit’s prayers. For those who love God all things work together for good (Romans 8:28).
Ask the Lord what you should pray. That’s what Hosea did.
Lord, what should I request for your people (Hosea 9:14)?
Pray the Psalms.*
May the words of my mouth
and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing in your sight,
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Paul wrote, “The longing of my heart and my prayer to God, is for the people of Israel to be saved (Romans 10:1 NLT).”
What is your heart’s desire? Do you pray about it?
If God answers your prayer, will He be glorified?
