—2 Samuel 7:23-29
by: Angie Osborn.
God glorified Himself by keeping His promises to Israel. David’s prayer was focused on the greatness of God and what He had done, as well as what He had promised to do. He also bragged on the nation of Israel a little, but immediately admitted that their greatness was due to God’s work on their behalf. David’s prayer was heartfelt and genuine. When we pray, it is important to do so with an attitude of worship. Too often, we go before God with only a prayer list. While He does want to hear our needs, He also deserves our heartfelt praise and our recognition of His promises.
