The last two steps in the pathway out of the pits of life are prayer and praise. Psalm 40 shows us that praying and praising gets us through the pits.
In fact if we back up through all we have seen so farâ€”it all makes so much sense.
When we pray we can praise; When we praise we can repeat truth about God; When we repeat truth about God we can renew our submission to God; When we renew our submission to God we can reaffirm our trust in Him; When we reaffirm our trust in Him we can remember His work in our life. And back we go again to prayer, to praise and back through those six steps David captures for us in the pathway out of the pits. So the last two steps in the pathway out of the pits of life are praise and prayer.
