THE WAY TO CRY FOR MERCY – November 14

As the saying goes, "History repeats itself." However, this is true only in a general sense and because it pleases God to do what He did in the past. All is the execution of His eternal plan.

More and more wickedness is pressing down upon the world, and there is reason for us today to sing: My righteous God, Who oft of old Hast saved from troubles manifold, Give answer when I call to Thee, Be gracious now and hear my plea. But notice that the ground of David's prayer for mercy is the fact that he prays to the God of his righteousness. We can in our singing call ...
