Opening Prayers by Pastor Dennis
David has enemies. And in order to escape these enemies. He pretends to be insane until the King drives him out. Amazingly, David wrote, “ I will bless the Lord at all times.” After he had been almost killed three times why would he still want to “bless” the Lord?” David knew the Lord. He knew the Lord had chosen him, prepared him and saved several times. Therefore, he “thanked” the Lord for his faithfulness.
