Prayer Structure

Today's reading: Psalm 90:1-17

Psalm 90 is a prayer by Moses, a man who had an exceptionally personal and close relationship with God. So what a privilege to see an example of how this great and godly man approached God in prayer. One of the things I notice right away is that the first half of this prayer is Moses recognizing God for who He is--all powerful, all knowing, loving, not being bound by human time, being present at all times. It's only after telling God what Moses knows about Him that Moses turns to his requests for God to satisfy the people with His constant and steadfast love, and for God to let His favor be upon them.

How does telling God what you know about Him help you get perspective? What impact does praising God as part of your prayers have on your attitude, and ultimately how and what you communicate with God? Tami
