This is why we pray…
Whether in the big things of Life, concerning Nations; or in our own personal trials and tribulations, God is in control! [Follow link for Backstory: 2 Kings 6:8-23]
The Message Bible
8 Earth-creatures, bow before God;
world-dwellers—down on your knees!
9 Here’s why: He spoke and there it was,
in place the moment He said so.
10 God takes the wind out of Babel pretense,
He shoots down the world’s power-schemes.
11 God’s plan for the world stands up,
all His designs are made to last.
12 Blessed is the country with God for God;
blessed are the people he’s put in His will.
13 From high in the skies God looks around,
He sees all Adam’s brood.
14 From where He sits
He overlooks all us earth-dwellers.
15 He has shaped each person in turn;
now He watches everything we do.
16 No king succeeds with a big army alone,
no warrior wins by brute strength.
17 Horsepower is not the answer;
no one gets by on muscle alone.
18 Watch this: God’s eye is on those who respect Him,
the ones who are looking for His love.
19 He’s ready to come to their rescue in bad times;
in lean times He keeps body and soul together.
20 We’re depending on God;
He’s everything we need!
