We’re reading through, and with intentionality, praying through the Psalms during this school year. There are 150 Psalms, divided into 180 different readings. See this post for more info.
The audio file below is the entire episode for today. The text below is today’s prayer. I’m reading the Contemporary English Version of the Text, copyright 1995, by the American Bible Society.
God. Abba. Father.
You are our God. We can’t get enough of you. Like being thirsty on a hot summer day, our heart longs for fellowship with you. We seek your face in every moment of our day today.
We have seen your power and majesty and might. Your love is generous and fulfilling. We praise you with our lips. We praise you with every breath. We praises you with our arms. We live in your great love for us.
This morning, as we awoke, we thought of you. Tonight as we go to sleep, we will think of you again. You are a very present help so we sing to you. We run and play and work freely because of you. You hold us steady, like an anchor in a perilous storm. We are safe because you are close.
We rejoice in you. In the unique and holy ways that define you, we praise You! For You are the King. Jesus is the King. The Holy Spirit is our King.
Bonus feature today: Watch this video to go to EinGedi with me, in the desert of Israel, where David likely wrote this Psalm.
