Psalms 71 Great Effective Prayer

PSALMS 71 PRAYER: POSSESS GREATER HONOR

PRAYING PSALMS 71: POSSESS GREATER HONOR

  INTRODUCTION 

Psalms 71 is a beautiful prayer Psalms found in the Bible and written by King David; a man after God’s own heart. The prayers are still very relevant to us today. Prayer is our means of communing with God. Sometimes when we are on our knees we run short of what to tell our Father in heaven. This should not be so if we make it an habit to read the Bible and apply them to our prayer life.

 THE BIBLE AND ITS CONTENT 

The Bible is a valuable companion as we seek to strengthen our relationship with God.  I enjoy praying Psalms 71 especially on days that I am fasting and need to pray for a minimum of one hour. The Psalms consist of 24 verses. I have broken them into smaller segments. I have penned down prayer tips I found valuable for each segment. My prayer consists of Bible reading, singing and presenting my petitions. This post is to get you started but the more you rely on the Holy Spirit for guidance the more you will be inspired to create your own points. I encourage you to open your Bible as you read this post and pray along.
