Let us, your servants, see you work again; let our children see your glory.

~Psalm 90:16, NLT


May our children learn from our failures, and may God show them His glory.

~John Philips

As I was reading Psalm 90 a few days ago, two of Moses prayer request really struck home. I love the prayer in verse 14, Satisfy us each morning with your unfailing love, so we may sing for joy to the end of our lives.” Wow, I love this prayer and have made it mine. I want to sing right up to my departure and sing for joy. Doug wants me to sing but he doesn’t want me to lead in volume or timing. I like to speed things up and he wants to slow them down. The other day the sound room left my mic on after I did the prayer in the middle of the praise service and my voice was dominant on the next song. Doug just shut down and that is when I realized I was going out through the PA system. I don’t have the volume I once had but on a PA system, I can make a lot of joyful noise. Jason always reminds me that I am taking scripture out of context when I talk about making a joyful noise. He says, “The Bible says make a joyful noise unto the LORD, not us.” Unfortunately for me, I have two of his disciples at the Point.

The verse I want to share is the one above…Let us, your servants, see you work again; let our children see your glory. This prayer includes me and my children. Moses remembers all the great miracles that God did in Egypt and at the Red Sea; He longs to see God work in this fashion again, but the B part is where I want to focus–“Let our children see your glory.” Moses had seen God’s glory but this young generation–20 years and down had not. They were not a part of the Exodus–had not been born. The older generation had failed and failed miserably. They had bad attitudes and a horrible lack of faith. When God said “Go,” they said “No.” They did something that is very hard to do, they exhausted God’s patience. I hope our children learn from our failures and I hope they live to see God’s glory. This will be my prayer until I depart–“O God, show them Your glory.” Ironically, I was 19 years old when I saw the glory of God {a revival meeting that went for 6 months} and I have never seen it since; at least not in that way. Every generation needs to see His glory.


June was sharing with me that the supreme court made another landmark decision for the lovers of liberty. They overruled the lower court who fired the coach for praying after games. Two victories in one week.
