Text: Psalm 81: 8 – 10
As can be seen from our text, the Lord, after enjoining His people to ensure that they were free of idols, challenged them to open their mouths wide, guaranteeing that He will fill it. Opening of the mouth wide’ is a figurative expression referring to “doing those things that would create great room for the inflow of God’s blessings.” Though there are several mode of opening the mouth wide, this time we are looking at PRAYER.
Prayer is simply the act of communicating with God: speaking to God (giving) and hearing from God (receiving). While there are different types of prayer (like Supplication, Intercession, Praise, Worship, Adoration etc), we shall focus on SUPPLICATION which is the act of asking God for help (Matt.7:7,8).
