Psalm 22:12-18Many bulls encompass me; strong bulls of Bashan surround me; they open wide their mouths at me, like a ravening and roaring lion. I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint; my heart is like wax; it is melted within my breast; my strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue sticks to my jaws; you lay me in the dust of death. For dogs encompass me; a company of evildoers encircles me; they have pierced my hands and feet--I can count all my bones-- they stare and gloat over me; they divide my garments among them, and for my clothing they cast lots.
Lord, as I read the account of Your crucifixion again this morning, I noted that you did not respond to Pilate's taunts. You said nothing and nowhere in the account is there any indication of You vocalizing the pain and suffering, only that heart wrenching cry, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" Lord, You suffered separation from God for me, an awful separation so that I might be ransomed from sin. Praise You, my Lord and my Master
Voices Together is taken from my daily meditations and is shared in the hope that others will be encouraged to use the Psalms as a basis for their own prayers, It is available in other formats including a daily e-mail, as a weekly bulletin insert for churches and for use in prison ministry, and published as an annual devotional.
Join us on September 16th at 9:00PM for our time for Prayer for Revival.
The Fellowship of Ailbe is calling men to unite together in prayer for revival. Register now to join us each third Thursday of the month, 9:00-10:00 PM Eastern time, as we lift our voices together by teleconference to pray for revival.
You must register for this special activity. Each month you will receive a reminder and materials to help you in preparing to pray for revival. You will also be given instructions on the various ways that you can connect with our teleconference. For those who are interested, our prayer coordinator, Carl Waggoner, is available to help you begin a Prayer for Revival group in your home or church, using the materials available through this ministry.
But you must register.
