Forty Days of Prayer: October 9

Today’s prayer focus is found in Psalm 33:20-22.

We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield.  21 In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.  22 May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you.

Our hope is in the Lord because he is our help and shield.  The Lord is the one for whom we wait.  He is the Ultimate Presence.  He is our help and our shield.  Because of His greatness, we trust in his holy name.  God’s trustworthiness produces in our hearts a deep and abiding joy.  While we wait in hope and rejoice in trust may God’s unfailing love rest upon us.

Do the words of Psalm 33:20-22 remind you of another scripture?  Notice the hope, trust, and love of the Psalm.  I Corinthians 13 may have restated this Psalm, “and now abideth faith, hope, and charity.”

“Lord, may every portion of the Our Phenomenal Future capital campaign be anchored in, built upon, and directed to faith, hope, and love.”
