Petition (Help)

Psalms 86

Petition (asking God for help) has been briefly addressed within the past 3 weeks (within confession, lament, and illumination). Psalm 86 lays out a broader view of what we need God’s help with. Petition is a posture of “I can’t, but I know You can.” It is a declaration of dependence on God. And the great mystery is not just that God would hear us, but that He would answer us.

Series Information

What is worship? Is it music? Is it singing? Is it something we are all expected to participate in? Often, we reduce the idea of worship to merely one hour on Sunday, yet God has so much more in store for us.

Worship begins and ends with God, which makes the orientation of our worship vertical. Throughout this series we will learn how God created us to be gripped by His glory and the beauty of Christ. We will journey together through the book of Psalms and follow the practices of David to learn how we can be true worshipers. Get ready to have your eyes opened, your mind renewed, and your heart awakened!
