Today’s Prayer Request:
A LETTER FROM THE FEBC PRESIDENT
“Hear my prayer, O God; listen to the words of my mouth…Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me.”
(Psalm 54:2, 4).
This Psalm is associated with a time when David had been betrayed and was desperately running for his life. He had been falsely accused of disloyalty to God’s people and Saul was trying to kill him. David took refuge in Judah among those he believed he could trust…instead they betrayed him and informed Saul where he was hiding.
David’s situation was desperate as he realized he had no power to rescue and restore himself. At this point, we catch a glimpse of David’s heart as he cries out to God for help and deliverance, “Hear my prayer, O God; listen to the words of my mouth.” David clearly chooses to trust God, turning to the only One who can uphold him…who can deliver him.
Just like David, when we face situations beyond our control, we know we can turn to God, trusting that our prayers will be heard. And as we pray, our words and actions strengthen and encourage us, reminding us of God’s faithfulness.
Thank you for your prayers on behalf of FEBC. We join with David in saying, “Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me.”
Until all have heard,
Edward W. Cannon
President and CEO
