Habakkuk’s Prayer

Habakkuk 3:1-2, 16

March 11, 2018

 

Introduction:

 

 

  1. A prayer of Habakkuk for use in worship. Hab. 3:1, 19

 

 

 

 

  1. The prayer expresses adoration and trust. Hab. 3:2a

 

 

 

 

III. In prayer the prophet expresses his fears. Hab. 3:16

 

 

 

 

 

  1. The prayer elevates a concern for God’s kingdom and will to be done. Hab. 3:2b

 

 

 

 

  1. The prophet pleads for mercy in the midst of judgment. Hab. 3:2c

 

 

 

 

Questions for reflection:

 

  • How does Habakkuk change from the beginning of his dialogue with the Lord to his prayer here in chapter 3? What do you think accounts for this change?
  • Habakkuk was in awe of God’s previous works in the history of Israel. What works of God have caused you to grow in awe of Him?
  • What is our confidence that God hears and answers our prayers for divine mercy?
