Daily D – 1 Samuel 3:9

by | Apr 8, 2021 | Daily D | 0 comments

He told Samuel, “Go and lie down. If he calls you, say, ‘Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening.’” So Samuel went and lay down in his place.
1 SAMUEL 3:9 (CSB)

_____________________________________________________________________________

 

Have you ever awakened in the night for no apparent reason? This happens to me more and more these days. What do you do on such occasions?

I normally try to go back to sleep. Rest is important. Our minds and muscles perform best when they are well rested. We are to work from a place of rest and not settle for resting from our work. 

There is something else we can do in those midnight hours. We can pray. Who do we pray for? Whoever comes to mind. I might have prayed for you this morning at 2:30. 

Our Father in heaven often places someone on our mind in such cases. Pray for that person then. Seek God’s highest and best for them. Ask him to meet their needs, to protect and defend them, and to give them clear direction. 

If no one immediately comes to mind, work through those closest to you. Pray Bible verses or passages you have committed to memory. 

Most often in such cases, I go back to sleep while praying. This is the best way I can think of to go to sleep. 

I may need a nap today since I had such a prayerful evening last night. I will pray myself to sleep then as well. How may I pray for you?

I will pray when I am awakened in the night.

Our Father, awaken me as often as you like that I may pray for those you play on my heart. Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening. Amen.

Daily D – 1 Kings 19:3-9

1 Kings 19:3-9 Then Elijah became afraid and immediately ran for his life. When he came to Beer-sheba that belonged to Judah, he left his servant there, but he went on a day’s journey into the wilderness. He sat down under a broom tree and prayed that he might die. He said, “I have had enough! Lord, take my life, for I’m no better than my ancestors.” Then he lay down and slept under the broom tree.

Suddenly, an angel touched him. The angel told him, “Get up and eat.” Then he looked, and there at his head was a loaf of bread baked over hot stones, and a jug of water. So he ate and drank and lay down again. Then the angel of the Lord returned for a second time and touched him. He said, “Get up and eat, or the journey will be too much for you.” So he got up, ate, and drank. Then on the strength from that food, he walked forty days and forty nights to Horeb, the mountain of God. He entered a cave there and spent the night. Suddenly, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

Daily D – 1 Kings 14:12-13

1 Kings 14:12, 13 “As for you, get up and go to your house. When your feet enter the city, the boy will die. All Israel will mourn for him and bury him. He alone out of Jeroboam’s house will be given a proper burial because out of the house of Jeroboam something favorable to the Lord God of Israel was found in him.“

Daily D – 1 Kings 12:6-7

1 Kings 12:6, 7 Then King Rehoboam consulted with the elders who had served his father Solomon when he was alive, asking, “How do you advise me to respond to this people?” They replied, “Today if you will be a servant to this people and serve them, and if you respond to them by speaking kind words to them, they will be your servants forever.”
