The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:5-6)

A King Prays to THE KING
Lord, I offer David's words from the Fifth Psalm:
Thank you, Father, for the example of David - king and military leader - who begins the morning in prayer.
The King who brings his sighs and cries to You.
The King who bows in awe of You…who recognizes your steadfast love…who prays “make your way straight before me.”
I pray for David's deep, direct, very real connection to You:
As it was for David, may it be so for us. Turn our sighs to joy. Be our refuge and shield. Be our reality.
