“But I cry to you for help, O LORD; in the morning my prayer comes before you.”
Psalm 88:13 NIV “
O LORD, the God who saves me, day and night I cry out before you.”
Psalm 88:1 NIV
These two verses give us a picture of prayer as something other than a ‘hit and miss’ haphazard occurrence. There is a feeling that the Psalmist has a daily agenda relating to his time with God.
Unlike many of us, who catch prayer when circumstances pile up too high to see over, or when we get emotionally stirred up enough to spend some time with God. It is our right, our privilege and our responsibility to make prayer a regular part of each day.
Ponder: How easy is it for you to be systematic in your devotional life? What keeps you from a routine that includes daily time in God’s presence? What kind of goal would you like to pursue in this area?
