Delivered Out of Distress


Psalm 107 tells you and me some incredible things about prayer. First and foremost, is that you and I can pray wherever we are. When you read through this Psalm, you’ll see that people who were in the city—those who were alone, lonely, finding no place, hungry, thirsty, whose soul was fainting in them—cried to the Lord in their trouble, and He delivered them out of their distresses.

It speaks about those who were alone at home, sitting in darkness. They began to cry out to God, and God delivered them out of their distresses. Those who were sitting in church, perhaps, who had rebelled against the words of God and found themselves sitting in darkness, cried—and He sent His Word to them and healed them. Those who were in the workplace not knowing how they were going to get through their difficulty began to cry, and God delivered them out of their distresses. The beauty of it is that you can pray wherever you are!

It’s time to pray.
