Study Guide – Psalm 66:16-20



16 Come and listen, all you who fear God,
    and I will tell you what he did for me.
17 For I cried out to him for help,
    praising him as I spoke.
18 If I had not confessed the sin in my heart,
    the Lord would not have listened.
19 But God did listen!
    He paid attention to my prayer.
20 Praise God, who did not ignore my prayer
    or withdraw his unfailing love from me. NLT


Read verses 16-20 and “listen”.


Describe the details of the writer’s personal story of faith:

Describe what God has done in your life:


Of all the details of your personal story, which details could be relevant and encouraging for people that you know in your life?



Be on the lookout in the next 24 hours for opportunities to share aspects of your personal story with others. As God prompts you, invite others to “listen” to what God has done in your life.
