    Verse9,10,and 11: << saw my work, have not known my ways, not enter into my rest>> two truth behind these verse; first of all there are some works that belong to men; there are some waysthat are not from God; there is the rest that doesn't belong to God.
    so we must pray God to open us the spiritual eyes in order to see/to apreciate his work; to open our spiritual intelligence/ability to know his

    Well, let us take a closer read of the Psalms 95. As this is not just a wonderful sentiment of: Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. It is an acknowledgment of when His people had Harden their heart, as they provoked, and tempted God to cut them off in the wilderness Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways. As it was then it is now and we must repent and let go of our unbelief and let God fill us with His Glory. Now read this as instructions from the Holy Ghost as we surrender all of our natural, carnal and selfish was to the Holy Spirit and be Sanctified for the will of God and come unto the throne room of our Father as He baptize us with Fire to burn away any flesh, so He can do His work through us. Filling us with His Glory.

    In verse 2 we see the importance of not only asking for things in prayer but we also want to express thanks to Jehovah God for the things we already have. We always want to make sure we serve God with a grateful spirit.
