When We Need Help

Hebrews 4.16: “Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence,so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”

My friends, let me ask you to pray for me and pray for one another.  Will you beseech the Lord to help us confidently approach the throne of grace whenever we need help?  I am confident that in so doing, the Sovereign Lord will grant us mercy and grace that will abundantly supply our every need.

Sadly, I believe that in our weakness, we do not approach the throne of our Lord’s grace often.  It is strange – is it not?  It ought to be a place that we delight to go.  It ought to be first upon our desires.  Truly we need the Lord’s gracious help.

Please pray with me for this.

    I’m going to be a broken record: Making a habit of praying in the pattern provided to us by the Lord is a wonderful way to approach the throne of grace. One way that makes it so special is that it is a prescribed way – don’t you imagine that it would please the Lord to hear his people praying in the manner he taught?!

    Also the Lord’s Prayer promote praying for others. Jesus said we ought to say, “Give US this day our daily bread; forgive US our transgressions,” etc.

    Please try to make this a daily habit. But, be careful to pray it each day with perfect freshness. It isn’t about praying the same words everyday, it is about praying about the same categorical concerns each day. It should never be a rote practice, but should everyday engage the depths of our faith and earnestness.
