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 119:129-136
Your laws are wonderful.
No wonder I obey them!
130 The teaching of your word gives light,
so even the simple can understand.
131 I pant with expectation,
longing for your commands.
132 Come and show me your mercy,
as you do for all who love your name.
133 Guide my steps by your word,
so I will not be overcome by evil.
134 Ransom me from the oppression of evil people;
then I can obey your commandments.
135 Look upon me with love;
teach me your decrees.
136 Rivers of tears gush from my eyes
because people disobey your instructions.
