Ps 124-128 The Power of a Praying Leader
The author of these psalms sees himself as the prayer warrior for his generation, the generation that has just passed, and the generations to come. Both he and Job are examples of their lives as praying men of God.
A: Adoration: Ps 125:1 “those who trust in the Lord are as Mt. Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever.” What a marvelous picture of a family head as he prays over his family, much like Job did.
C: Confession: Job prayed: “perhaps my sons have sinned and cursed God in their hearts.” [Job 1:5] What a marvelous picture of a praying father!
T: Thankfulness Ps 128, the psalmist reminds us that God blesses those who walk in His ways and fears the Lord; therefore he quietly prays that he and other men might see the fruit of their womb in their latter days.
S: Supplication: “May you see your children’s children.” [Ps 128:6]
Today, as you go about your work; pray for the fathers who lead, the leaders you encounter in work or shopping, etc. so that we might be a blessed people. And pray for yourself as you lead in your home or work, at play, and at rest. May we be a praying people.
