Habakkuk 3 A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet, according to Shigionoth. O Lord, I have heard the report of you, and your work, O Lord, do I fear. In the midst of the years revive it; in the midst of the years make it known; in wrath remember mercy...
I found Habakkuk's prayer a little challenging--at least initially. But as I continued to read, I could see how Habakkuk was, through examples and descriptions, recognizing and elevating God and His greatness and power. He then claims and relies on God to help him in his present circumstances, which sound difficult based on his descriptions in verse 17 (no fruit on the vines, no olive harvest, no herd in the stalls).
Do you acknowledge God's greatness and power in your prayers? How? What's your experience been when you start your prayer focused on God? Tami W.
