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 119:161-168
Powerful people harass me without cause,
but my heart trembles only at your word.
162 I rejoice in your word
like one who discovers a great treasure.
163 I hate and abhor all falsehood,
but I love your instructions.
164 I will praise you seven times a day
because all your regulations are just.
165 Those who love your instructions have great peace
and do not stumble.
166 I long for your rescue, Lord,
so I have obeyed your commands.
167 I have obeyed your laws,
for I love them very much.
168 Yes, I obey your commandments and laws
because you know everything I do.
