Thanks for joining us on our 40-day journey of prayer. We’re asking you to get your journals out and do 3 things:
- Read the Psalm of the day. Enjoy the 2-minute devo.
- Journal a few thoughts. Put into words what the Holy Spirit is speaking to you.
- Spend time in prayer. Respond to what God is speaking to you through his Spirit and his word.
“Everything that a person can possibly feel, experience, and say is brought into expression before God in the Psalms.” Eugene Peterson
Today’s reading: Psalm 119:65-72
You have done many good things for me, Lord,
just as you promised.
66 I believe in your commands;
now teach me good judgment and knowledge.
67 I used to wander off until you disciplined me;
but now I closely follow your word.
68 You are good and do only good;
teach me your decrees.
69 Arrogant people smear me with lies,
but in truth I obey your commandments with all my heart.
70 Their hearts are dull and stupid,
but I delight in your instructions.
71 My suffering was good for me,
for it taught me to pay attention to your decrees.
72 Your instructions are more valuable to me
than millions in gold and silver.
