21 Days of Prayer, Day 21

1F2E6211-B55E-4392-95AA-6B3A13BE93A6This morning we finish day 21 on Super Bowl Sunday. In America, this event draws millions of viewers, millions of dollars in advertising, and functions like a holiday with all the festivities. 

Take some time this morning to set your heart on God by praising him as you read Psalm 103. Take time to read it now in its entirety. Then reflect on the following verses.

  • “Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits” (v. 2). What is something you are most thankful for about what God does for you? Express your thanks to Him.
  • God “redeems your life from the pit” (v. 4). What is one area of sin God has freed you from?
  • “The LORD works righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed” (v. 6). Think of one people group that you can pray for their freedom from oppression. Thank the Lord for his compassion upon all who are oppressed.
  • “The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love” (V.8). Praise God for his mercy and grace.
  • ”For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him” (v. 11). Let that sink in. Express your gratitude to God!

You can continue in this pattern through the Psalm. God is worthy of our praise! Here’s a final thought:

”The LORD has established his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules over all” (v. 19). We know from the New Testament that Jesus’ work on earth lead to an in breaking of the Kingdom of God on Earth.

Praise God who works to bring his rule on earth as it is in Heaven. Pray for his rule and authority to spread in your life, in your family, and in our community in the year ahead!

P.S. On February 24th we are planning a celebration more important than the Super Bowl. February 24th we will hold baptism services at Harvest. If you’ve not been baptized as a believer and would like to learn more, click here.
