    For Thought and Meditation - Monday, July 25

    Good morning all. Let's get this week started in the right direction. Have a safe and blessed day.

    Prayers to Whom?
    July 25, 2022 - Dr. David Jeremiah

    Therefore David blessed the Lord before all the assembly; and David said: “Blessed are You, Lord God of Israel, our Father, forever and ever.”
    1 Chronicles 29:10

    In recent years, it has become common to hear public officials use this phrase: “Our thoughts and prayers are with all those impacted by this event.” Such statements are commendable and appreciated in times of crisis or suffering. But given the religiously pluralistic nature of societies, the offer of prayers raises the question, Prayers to whom?

    The reason it matters is that prayers should be directed toward a deity that has invited such prayers and has the power to answer them (Hebrews 4:16). In the Bible, there is never any doubt as to Whom prayers are being offered. And often God is named specifically, as when David prayed, “Blessed are You, Lord God of Israel, our Father, forever and ever.” Jews, and later Christians, didn’t pray to an unnamed God. They prayed to the God who had made promises that became the basis of their prayers (2 Peter 1:3-4).

    It matters to whom we pray, and why. We pray to God the Father, in the Name of the Son, and in the power of the Spirit.

    The Bible is a letter God has sent to us, prayer is a letter we send to Him.
    Matthew Henry
    Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

    Amen, this is spot on today. I see so many people say they are praying for someone but to who are they praying!
