Psalm 19:14  May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Some days call for simple prayers to start the day. Here King David committed his way to the LORD. He asked for God’s presence in his every thought, God’s guidance in every activity. 

How would your life be different if you invited God to shape your thoughts and to drive out worries, fears, and those comforting sins you ponder from time to time? 

How would your life be different if you invited God to direct your steps, to lead you along the path today, to go where he wants you to go, to say what he wants you to say, and to do what he wants you to do?

How would your evening reflections before bedtime shift if you lived in the conscious awareness of the immediate presence of God in all of your thinking and behaving, speaking and acting?

Let’s give it a try you and I. Pray King David’s prayer. Write it down and carry it with you. Return to it as often as necessary to remind yourself to invite God into every conversation, every activity. 

What if we did this day by day, every day? 

How about turning this kind of prayer into a life-giving habit? Pray like this for the next thirty days. Incorporate this into your routines and rhythms. Allow God to shape your life. 

Notice King David’s testimony about thinking God’s thoughts with him:

“They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb. By them your servant is warned; in keeping them there is great reward.”
‭‭(verses 10, 11)

  • They are more precious than much pure gold.
  • They are sweeter than honey.
  • They provide warnings.
  • They deliver great rewards.

I will invite our Father to shape my thoughts and to guide my actions in all things today and every day.

Our Father, may these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. 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?”

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.”
