Which psalm or verse especially reflects your heart today? Use those words to talk to the Lord.
- Desire – In Psalm 42 & 43, the psalmist pants and thirsts for God (42:1-2). He wants to go to the temple and praise the Lord with God’s people (42:3-4, 43:3-4). Because he can’t go, he is downcast, yet he hopes in God that he will again go and praise the Lord (42:5, 11, 43:5). Do you have this longing desire for God? This intense desire to gather and worship? Ask God to help you grow in these desires.
- Help – Psalm 44 recounts God’s past help before crying out to God for help in the present. How has God helped you in the past? How do you need him to help you today?
