Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Wow, this Psalm of confidence in God suddenly has a much more powerful ring to it after remembering the resurrection of Christ! God does save us. God does listen to our voices. We can be sure he both hears and acts to bring salvation for us. The only question is whether we call out to God evening, morning, and noon trusting his response.

My Prayer...

Abba Father, I have burdens on my heart about things in my own life that need your grace and power. Please hear my voice and my heart as I share these concerns with you...(Feel free to share your personal concerns today at this point in our prayer.) In addition, dear Father, please place your loving touch on the following people for whom I'm concerned... Thank you for hearing me. Thank you for saving me. Thank you for caring about those for whom I am concerned. In the name of Christ Jesus, my Savior, I pray. Amen.
