Here is a prayer of declaration to the Lord: “Lord, You have been our dwelling place throughout all generations” ( Ps. 90:1 ). Only the Lord satisfies. Places, things and projects do not replace Him. We try to do many things to get satisfied, but only the Lord can satisfy us in reality. So this is also another example of a Bible prayer.
In Psalms 119 there are many more examples. Psalm 119:89, “For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.” In other words, in the heavenlies there is no problem with the Word of God, but on the earth there is some problem. That’s why the Lord Jesus taught us to pray, “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven, indicating that in Heaven there is no problem with the Word of God. Yet, Jesus taught us to pray to bring the will of God from the heavens to the earth.
Psalm 119:89 says, “For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.” Yet it is God’s intention that His Word would also be established on the earth. This is another prayer of declaration. Declaring this prayer on earth reminds us and God that His word should also be settled in our hearts while we are on the earth. Why should His word only be settled in the heavens and not in us on the earth.
