1 Chronicles 11:2-12

2And moreover in time past, even when Saul was king, thou wast he that leddest out and broughtest in Israel: and the LORD thy God said unto thee, Thou shalt feed my people Israel, and thou shalt be ruler over my people Israel.

3Therefore came all the elders of Israel to the king to Hebron; and David made a covenant with them in Hebron before the LORD; and they anointed David king over Israel, according to the word of the LORD by Samuel.

4And David and all Israel went to Jerusalem, which is Jebus; where the Jebusites were, the inhabitants of the land.

5And the inhabitants of Jebus said to David, Thou shalt not come hither. Nevertheless David took the castle of Zion, which is the city of David.

6And David said, Whosoever smiteth the Jebusites first shall be chief and captain. So Joab the son of Zeruiah went first up, and was chief.

7And David dwelt in the castle; therefore they called it the city of David.

8And he built the city round about, even from Millo round about: and Joab repaired the rest of the city.

9So David waxed greater and greater: for the LORD of hosts was with him.

10These also are the chief of the mighty men whom David had, who strengthened themselves with him in his kingdom, and with all Israel, to make him king, according to the word of the LORD concerning Israel.

11And this is the number of the mighty men whom David had; Jashobeam, an Hachmonite, the chief of the captains: he lifted up his spear against three hundred slain by him at one time.

12And after him was Eleazar the son of Dodo, the Ahohite, who was one of the three mighties.

Prayer of the Day

5 Reasons to Pray

Many times we complain that we do not know how to pray or why to pray. There are many reasons to approach God in prayer. But I would like to share with you this note about prayer.



1) To seek the face of the Lord and to know Him better (Psalm 27:8).

Psalm 27:8: When thou saidst, Seek ye my face, my heart hath answered thy face, Lord I will seek.

2) To remove your eyes from your problems and place them in the Lord (Psalm 121:1).

Psalm 121:1: I will lift up mine eyes unto the mountains; Where does my help come from?.

3) To speak with God (1 Peter 3:12).

1 Peter 3:12: For the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are attentive to his prayers; But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil

4) To remove the burdens of your heart (Psalm 142:1-2)

Psalm 142:1-2:

1- I cry to the Lord with my voice; With my voice I beg the Lord.

2 - In front of him I expose my complaint; In his manifest presence my anguish.

5) That your petitions may be known by God (Matthew 21:22).

Matthew 21:22: And whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
