“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 42:1

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

As a deer longs for flowing streams,

so my soul longs for You, O God.

.

– Psalm 42:1 (NRSV)

.

.

REFLECTION…and Prayer…

.

I can’t explain it, Lord, but I know it is true

– my soul longs for You,

and my heart beats faster as it reaches out to You.

.

The more I get to know You, Lord,

and the more I reflect on Your Word,

the greater the yearning and desire of my heart and my soul…for You.

.

Lord, there is none like You,

and my heart and soul know it.

.

Grant, O Lord, my Maker,

that my mind, which has discerned and welcomed Your Truth

but which can so easily lose its focus,

will not be led astray by the many distractions of the world

– a world which seems determined

to want to pollute every stream of the True and Living Faith.

.

Grant that my heart, my soul and my mind will unite as one

and, together, focus on You, O Lord,

until I finally find rest

…in You

…forever.

.

Amen.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

As a deer longs for flowing streams, so I long for You, O God.
