Psalm 141 Summary/Application

1. Believers should [a] seek refuge in God because He is the only One who can give us grace and strength to face temptation and evil and [b] keep our focus on Jesus and His Great Commandment and Great Commission.

2. God is employing every circumstance and relationship in disciple’s lives to conform them to the image of Jesus

3. If we ask God to intervene against others, we must be willing to open our own lives to His righteous judgment and testing. [ Psalm 26:2, Psalm 139:23, Philippians 3:10, Isaiah 26:9 ]

4. A person must be real with no pretense in praying. God understands our hearts’ turmoil when we have trouble. He knows whether we have a heart of obedience or disobedience.

5. Focusing on Jesus, not our problems, will enable us to go daily comforting others, witnessing for Jesus and teaching His converts all that we are commanded in the Bible.

6. On a scale from one to ten, how would you rate your prayer life? What struggles do you have in prayer? Ask the Lord to revitalize your prayer life. Five encouragements to pray follow. [ Click here for help ]

7. To pray is to “call upon” God. When you pray you are communicating with the eternal God who created the universe and He stoops down to our level to give ear to our prayers!

8. At the end of the ages the prayers of the saints are offered up to Jesus as a golden bowl of incense. [Revelation 5:8] May disciples be encouraged to offer up a sacrifice of praise and worship to God today!

9. Even the most difficult moments in life and ministry can be addressed by God [Acts 4:23-31], so we should focus our prayers on Him during those times. Select part of this scripture and pray it back to God.

10. Ask the Lord to help you pray from the Psalms on a daily basis. Choose Psalm 1, 23 & 141 and other psalms and pray them back to God.

11.  Be careful to balance our prayers between praise/Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving and petitions/Supplications. [ACTS]

12. Scripture memory Psalm 141:8 For my eyes are toward You, O God, the Lord;
In You I take refuge; do not leave me defenseless.
NASB

Henry Luke 8/25/2017
