{ Elizabeth and her Dad}
{Elizabeth and her little dog Ariel}
We found out Elizabeth's test results today. She is probably going to have to have her spleen removed.

It is very enlarged and we have to see a specialist next week to talk about what is going to happen next. Please pray for her.

I have been scared, but I put my trust in God to help her..

He hears our prayers..In our darkest moments I know He is there.

love Nita <3

I hope this Prayer will help you - I will be praying for Elizabeth too.

The Prayer of David

"In times of trouble, may the Lord respond to your cry. May the God of Israel keep you safe from all harm. May he send you help from his sanctuary and strengthen you from Jerusalem. May he remember all your gifts and look favorably upon your burnt offerings. May he grant your heart's desire and fulfill all your plans. May we shout for joy when we hear of your victory flying banners to honor our God. May the Lord answer all your prayers."
Psalm 20:1-6 NLT

It is a prayer for victory in the battles of life.

All of the answered prayers of David are encapsulated in this amazing one-minute prayer, which ends, "May the Lord answer all of your prayers!"

Since David's day, this prayer has been prayed over kings at their coronation. It was used as medicine during the Black Plague in Europe.

This prayer is truly a National Anthem, appropriate to be sung at the outbreak of war for victory!

The Prayer of David is believed to have been used in public worship by the Early Church . . . . which means . . .

We know our Lord read the Psalm, His eyes beheld these Words, His lips spoke them, and I am sure He prayed them.

David was an unlikely person to become the most blessed man in the entire Bible. This amazing prayer encompasses everything that David, you, or I could ever ask of God. The spotlight of heave was turned on, the hand of God moved, and the head of God turned as David prayer this prayer of faith!

David had to choose to believe that God was truly guiding his life, rather than choosing to take matters into his own hands. The path of least resistance would have led to destruction for David, as it will in our lives. David had to get his eyes on Jehovah's promises, and off his predicament, to live in peace. Peace was not the absence of conflict; it was having the courage to face the conflict and make the right choices. This was true in David's life; it is true in yours.

Revelation keys to a life of amazing favor are in this short intercessory prayer. The heart of David is supernaturally embodied in the Prayer of David. And God said David was a man after His heart . . . the heart that caused an unknown shepherd boy, considered in the eyes of his world a mere lump of clay, to become the cherished object of Divine Destiny.

The first thing to do in times of trouble: Trust God! When you do, you will find yourself abiding in the presence of God as did David who declared in Psalm 91 that you "shall not be afraid of terror." "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress; my God; in him will I trust" (Psalm 91:1-2). Once you place your trust in Him---- not in self, not in others---- you can pray the Prayer of David with faith, power, and authority, and then allow God to fight your battle.

If He did it for David, He will do it for you.


And that was just the Preface. The book is called The Prayer of David In Times of Trouble by Michael D. Evans.

Love ya! Thank you for sharing your love of Christ!
