Believing the Promises of God - in His Word
Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed… Without weakening in his faith… Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised. ~ Romans 4 [selected 18-21]

PRAYER & FAITH
For the director of music. A psalm of David.
1 May the LORD answer you when you are in distress;
may the Name of the God of Jacob protect you.
2 May He send you help from the sanctuary
and grant you support from Zion.
3 May He remember all your sacrifices
and accept your burnt offerings. Selah
4 May He give you the desire of your heart
and make all your plans succeed.
5 We will shout for joy when You are victorious
and will lift up our banners in the Name of our God.
May the LORD grant all your requests.
6 Now I know that the LORD saves His anointed;
He answers him from His holy heaven
with the saving power of His right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the Name of the LORD our God.
8 They are brought to their knees and fall,
but we rise up and stand firm.
9 O LORD, save the king [and me]!
Answer us when we call!
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Looking UPward and Choosing JOY,
