Today, we are in our third week of a new sermon series called Anthem about the songs of David. The book of Psalms is a hymnbook for exiles. In this series we look at four psalms of David and how they shape the way we talk, confess, lament, and sing praise to God. Regardless of our circumstance, we can approach God with the same raw honesty, humility, and joy that David expressed in his poetry. Today we learn how to pray as we study Psalm 86 and see David’s response to tough times.
Why should we pray? Because we have needs that only God can meet
To whom do we pray? The only true God
How should we pray? We pray in faith with thankfulness and humility
For what do we pray? We pray for salvation, and for joy through our trials
