We are like David! No matter how much we love the Lord, we cannot save ourselves (or our world) from the evil within.
We have a new go-between, a new prophet of sacrifice and gifts who’s done it all once and forever, whose story includes King David, a freedom fighter named Moses, and Rahab, a prostitute with a heart of gold. We have a new royalty, and he’s the prince of peace.
David’s prayer can serve as a model of how we should pray for our political leaders, especially our newly elected president.
Can you remember one of the last times that you allowed yourself to enter into the type of praise that David describes?
