    Psalms 61:2

    Hear my cry O God, attend to my prayer: This was wise praying from David. He understood that though God hears all prayers in one sense, in the sense of answering and responding favourably. Opening his prayer this way, David did not presume a response from God, but actively asked for the response. True believers are eager for an answering prayers, but living Children of God will never rest till their supplications have entered the ears of the Lord God.

    The Rock that is Higher than I is Jesus Christ !!!!

    I came to work today and my heart felt overwhelmed , But contrary to that, my mind and Spirit came to this scripture. What a timely word, because I believe that God is working on my behalf right now, and no weapon that is formed against me shall prosper.
  • Paula on Psalms 61:2
    I 've had several overwhelming situations in my life. One in particular that I thought had wiped me out. I didn 't know what to do and God led me to Psalm 61 2. I thought of one person. My Rock, My Salvation, My Light, My Redeemer. When I was low. He delivered me out of the pit the darkness. Without him I was Nothing. With Him I am everything now. It doesn 't get any higher than that. For He is worthy to be praised!! Every breath I. Every situation. Know that THE ROCK IS ALL WE WILL EVER NEED.
