Psalm 80:3  Turn us again to yourself, O God. Make your face shine down upon us. Only then will we be saved. (NLT)

Some prayers are worth re-praying. Some words bear repeating. Some ideas take time to fully penetrate our hearts and minds. 

Psalm 80 is a radiant psalm. Seasons of success and lives of peace and meaning have a common source. They begin and end with God alone. 

Notice the words above from verse 3 repeat in verses 7 and 19. 

Notice also the repetition of God’s radiant glory in verses 1, 3, 7, and 19. 

The more we focus on God’s glory, the more fruitful, effective, loving, and generous our lives become. 

Rescue and redemption are among God’s glorious works.

Renewal and restoration are evidence of his grace and mercy. 

Revival comes from God’s glow and overflow in our lives. 

This is a prayer worth praying and praying repeatedly. 

This is a prayer worth pondering, and employing regularly. 

I will pray with focused attention on God’s glory and his salvation.

Our Father, words often fail us when we attempt to express the deepest truths and are accompanied by our fondest hopes. Sometimes the best thing we can do is repeat what we know to be true. You are glorious! You are radiant! You illuminate all good things! Make your face shine on us today. Deliver us from encroaching darkness. Cascade your brilliance through our revived and renewed lives. Amen.

Daily D – Psalm 119:114

Psalm 119:114 You are my refuge and my shield; your word is my source of hope.

Daily D – Jonah 4:2-3

Jonah 4:2, 3 So he complained to the Lord about it: “Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people. Just kill me now, Lord! I’d rather be dead than alive if what I predicted will not happen.”

Daily D – Psalm 115:14-15

Psalm 115:14, 15 May the Lord richly bless both you and your children. May you be blessed by the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

Daily D – Joel 2:12-13

Joel 2:12, 13 That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.”

Daily D – Hosea 14:8-9

Hosea 14:8, 9 “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
