Praying for Deliverance

gideon1c“We recognize that God has spoken in various ways. Now he has spoken finally in his Son Jesus (Heb. 1:1-2). The implication, which the book of Hebrews works out at considerable length, is that we no longer live in the age in which God reveals his will to us in these diverse ways. Now he has perfectly revealed his will to us in Jesus, and we will find his guidance enshrined in the pages of our only witness to Christ — the Holy Scriptures.” (Sinclair B. Ferguson, Discovering God’s Will, p. 28).

“It was not just a man named Samson who had been captured; Israel’s deliverer was in the hands of the enemy. . . . He prayed to the Lord to repay the Philistines for what they had done to him, Israel’s deliverer. Then, in the Spirit, he saw God’s grace upon his people again, and he believed. In the strength of that faith, he took hold of the central pillars and pulled them away, so that the entire temple collapsed.” (S. G. de Graaf, Promise and Deliverance, Vol. 2, p. 47).

The Wednesday evening Bible Study focuses this week on two prayers in Judges, followed by a time of prayer at Trinity Presbyterian Church of the OPC.
