The Journey with Ron Moore

Negated Prayers | Psalm 72:1-7

Today's Passage: Psalm 72:1-7
Key Verses: Psalm 72:1-3

Endow the king with your justice, O God, the royal son with your righteousness. May he judge your people in righteousness, your afflicted ones with justice. May the mountains bring prosperity to the people, the hills the fruit of righteousness.

Two psalms are attributed to Solomon (72 and 127). Here the king describes his reign. He asks God to bless the people of his kingdom (there are some who believe that this psalm foretells the millennial kingdom.)

King Solomon prayed for righteousness and justice. He asked that God provide prosperity for his people. He requested that God "defend the afflicted," "save theÖneedy" and "crush the oppressor." He asked that the king's sons would continue to reign and that God bless the kingdom through his leadership.

Unfortunately Solomon did not allow his prayer to be answered. His disobedience turned his heart from God. After Solomon, war split the kingdom until both the North (Israel) and the South (Judah) were taken into captivity. The lesson: Make sure the actions of your life match the prayers of your lips.

Father, please don't let us pull a Solomon. Don't let our actions negate our prayers. In Jesus' name. Amen.
