Psalms 34:1-6

I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together. I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed. This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.

God will bless those who cry onto him in a contrite sprit. He wants people to come to him with humility and love. If we do this he will deliver us from our troubles and give us the support that we need of him.

Message 60:12

Gather in the assembly and cry unto the Lord. Let no evil come among you. The Lord will hear all those that repent and obey his will. Let your prayers be of the heart. Let not contention be found among you.

As we gather next week we need to keep our eye on the prize. This means that we must come to the assembly with a broken heart and contrite spirit. We cannot come to worship the Lord with contention in our hearts.
