Prayer makes me Confident

I have memorized these verses well and meditate on them (recite them in my head over and over) often. Some observations;

Psalms 3:3-6 But You, O Lord, are a shield about me,
My glory, and the One who lifts my head.
I was crying to the Lord with my voice,
And He answered me from His holy mountain.
I lay down and slept;
I awoke, for the Lord sustains me.
I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people
Who have set themselves against me round about.

This is a prayer of David when he was fleeing for his life from his own son Absolom when he was trying to take over the Kingdom from David,and kill him.

The result of his praying was that God gave him “glory” or a great sense of worth and value, and God “lifted his head” or took away his sense of shame and failure. Also fear was taken away and replaced with peace and confidence.

Life is full of pressures, trials, failure, mean critical people, uncertainty, and change. All of that can make us sad, full of fear and uncertainty, make us feel like a loser, and fill us with shame. We can wallow in that or we can turn to God and pray, not a little prayer but the kind of prayer that shows we are desperate. God loves to draw near to those who really need Him and give them all that they need to conquer life.
