A Prayer of Moses


Deuteronomy 34:10-12 (ESV)
10  And there has not arisen a prophet since in Israel like Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face, 11 none like him for all the signs and the wonders that the LORD sent him to do in the land of Egypt, to Pharaoh and to all his servants and to all his land, 12  and for all the mighty power and all the great deeds of terror that Moses did in the sight of all Israel.

Psalm 90:1 (ESV)
   BOOK FOUR A PRAYER OF MOSES, THE MAN OF GOD. Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations.

Psalm 90:16 (ESV)
16 Let your work be shown to your servants, and your glorious power to their children.

Father as I read and mediate on Psalm 90 I am so impressed with your servant and your friend Moses. He had such a special relationship with you and non-greater than your personal and private conversations with him. He saw and experienced so much of your glorious power. And what impresses me is his concern for the children of his people.

Deuteronomy 4:39-40 (ESV)
39  know therefore today, and lay it to your heart, that the LORD is God in heaven above and on the earth beneath; there is no other. 40  Therefore you shall keep his statutes and his commandments, which I command you today, that it may go well with you and with your children after you, and that you may prolong your days in the land that the LORD your God is giving you for all time."

Deuteronomy 6:6-7 (ESV)
6  And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.

Father, Moses heart felt compassion and concern for the children certainly reminds us of your love for children. How concerned you are that they know you, and experience your love and glorious power in their lives. This moves me to pray for my own children and grandchildren and great grandchildren to know the joy of your fellowship, the sustaining power of your strength and the eternal love in which you hold them.

I pray with Moses, “shown your glorious power to the children.”

Father, help me to do my part in telling your story for your glory and for the sake of my children and the generations to come.

In the powerful name of Jesus

Amen
