Encourage Thyself in the Lord



Downhearted and disgruntled,

Discouraged and depressed...

Down trodden and despondent,

Distraught and so distressed? 


Encourage thyself like David did,

Don't give the devil place.

Forget the pity party,

Hop to! ...about-face! 


Take counsel from the Lord of Hosts.

Don't fret, and moan and stew.

Surely He will guide you

And show you what to do. 


Has He ever failed you?

Don't get so overwhelmed.

He's the Captain of Salvation,

Let Him take the helm. 


Encourage thyself like David.

Recall God's mighty deeds.

Be reminded of His promises,

Then you will succeed.

Prayer is our link with God, an awesome avenue through which we can express praise and adoration to Him for His goodness, love, and mercy; and an avenue through which we can voice our petitions and concerns. God's Word assures us that we can "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).

Prayer also moves the hand of God on behalf of needs and circumstances in our church, our families, our community, nation, and world. Take time to pray and intercede for these areas as God leads you. Become part of a prayer group and intercede with others in times of corporate prayer. As you seek God's help, expect reports of great victory to follow as God answers prayer.
