Psalm 138
This week’s sermon text: Romans 3:9-26

Field Notes
What a beautiful vision of prayer we find in Psalm 138! The Psalmist writes, “I give you thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart; before the gods I sing your praise…On the day I called, you answered me, you increased my strength of soul.” Prayer is a gift from God. How wonderful to know that we worship and serve a God that wants to hear our thoughts, our desires, our troubles, and our praises. How wonderful it is to know that we serve a God that responds to our prayers! God’s answers might not always be the answers we want or expect, but God is always listening and present to each and every one of us.
