READING:  Psalms 65, 66, 67, 69, 70

TEXTS AND APPLICATION:  Though these psalms cover different topics, prayer is a recurrent theme:

65:2  All humanity will come to You, the One who hears prayer.

66:16-20  Come and listen, all who fear God, and I will tell what He has done for me. I cried out to Him with my mouthand praise was on my tongue. If I had been aware of malice in my heart, the Lord would not have listened. However, God has listened; He has paid attention to the sound of my prayer. May God be praised! He has not turned away my prayer or turned His faithful love from me.

69:13, 16  But as for me, Lordmy prayer to You is for a time of favorIn Your abundant, faithful love, God, answer me with Your sure salvation. . . . Answer me, Lord,

for Your faithful love is good; in keeping with Your great compassion, turn to me.

PRAYER: Please pray that I will have no malice, no wrong motives, no unforsaken sin in my heart that would cause God not to listen to my prayers. I want to walk in His favor and invite the nations to Him who answers prayer!
