2-Minute Devo: Day 31 of Our 40-Day Journey #Undone40

Thanks for joining us on our 40-day journey of prayer. We’re asking you to get your journals out and do 3 things:

  1. Read.
    • Read the Psalm of the day. Enjoy the 2-minute devo.
  2. Reflect.
    • Journal a few thoughts.  Put into words what the Holy Spirit is speaking to you.
  3. Respond.
    • 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 39:1-7

I said to myself, “I will watch what I do
    and not sin in what I say.
I will hold my tongue
    when the ungodly are around me.”
But as I stood there in silence—
    not even speaking of good things—
    the turmoil within me grew worse.
The more I thought about it,
    the hotter I got,
    igniting a fire of words:
Lord, remind me how brief my time on earth will be.
    Remind me that my days are numbered—
    how fleeting my life is.
You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand.
    My entire lifetime is just a moment to you;
    at best, each of us is but a breath.” Interlude

We are merely moving shadows,
    and all our busy rushing ends in nothing.
We heap up wealth,
    not knowing who will spend it.
And so, Lord, where do I put my hope?
    My only hope is in you.
