Praying in Hope
Psalm 22:25-26 From you comes the theme of my praise in the great assembly; before those who fear you I will fulfill my vows. The poor will eat and be satisfied; those who seek the Lord will praise him—may your hearts live forever!Last week, I quoted from the 22nd Psalm the words Jesus quoted when He uttered on the cross, "My God, My God have you forsaken me." In the very same song comes a declaration that the poor will be cared for by God. This means, even the very person who feels abandoned by His God, will be rescued by the same God. The same person that could utter a cry of abandonment could also say those who seek the Lord will praise Him.
