You Have Been Prayed For… PSALM 123:2

Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I offer this line from Peter T. Forsythe.

“The first duty of every soul is to find not its freedom but its Master.”

Psalm 123:2
New American Standard Bible

Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master,
As the eyes of a female servant to the hand of her mistress,
So our eyes look to the Lord our God,
Until He is gracious to us.

Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and thanks You.  Bless You, for being such a loving Master of our souls. Praise the gracious favor You faithfully provide us. Give us wisdom to understand that the world’s idea of freedom is actually slavery to sin and that the only true freedom comes from surrendering to You, the only power greater than sin is our Almighty and Holy God. In Jesus’ name, amen.
