Call Upon Me In The Day of Trouble

Call to Worship


Psalms 50: 15

50:15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

The Lord says, “Call upon Me in the day of trouble.” Psalm 50:15. He invites us to present to Him our perplexities and necessities, and our need of divine help. He bids us be instant in prayer. As soon as difficulties arise, we are to offer to Him our sincere, earnest petitions. By our importunate prayers we give evidence of our strong confidence in God. The sense of our need leads us to pray earnestly, and our heavenly Father is moved by our supplications. {COL 172.2}

Importunate means to be persistent, even to the point of being annoying or intrusive. God bids us to come to Him in prayer in our time of trouble. God will hear and answer sincere and earnest prayers. God promises to deliver us in the day of trouble, that His name may be glorified. We are not capable of producing miracles, so we must turn to God that He may use His divine hand to deliver us out of our trouble. God knows the beginning from the end, so He will answer your prayer according to His infinite wisdom. We are not to wait, rather turn to God in instant prayer. Do not let go of God, and He will not let go of you.

Our heavenly Father,

We thank You for being there for us, for watching over us, protecting us, and keeping us safe. We thank You for allowing us to come to the foot of Your throne in prayer. When we come to You with all our burdens, You have promised that You will give us rest. We thank You for this and all of Your wonderful promises. We thank You for delivering us in our time of trouble, and may all the Glory be to You, dear Lord. We sense our need to come to You in prayer, and we will not let go of You, and pray that You will not let go of us. We thank You for hearing and answering all our prayers, according to Your will and infinite wisdom. In the name of Jesus Christ, we thank You and praise You. Amen.
