How long, Lord?… But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.

My Daily Prayers and Readings for 10/18/2013

How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever?

   How long will you hide your face from me?

How long must I wrestle with my thoughts

   and day after day have sorrow in my heart?

   How long will my enemy triumph over me?

Look on me and answer, Lord my God.

   Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,

and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”

   and my foes will rejoice when I fall.

But I trust in your unfailing love;

   my heart rejoices in your salvation.

I will sing the Lord’s praise,

   for he has been good to me.

Lord God, my source of source. How long? Today’s devotion and reading from Psalm is a reflection of my thoughts. Like David, I cry out as an expression of disappointment, combined with confident affirmation of trust in You.1 And like David How long O Lord Psalm-13help keep me a man after Your own heart.  A heart likened to Jesus’ with a steadfast spirit. For my one walk in and with You, as a channel of Your peace and love in all situations with all people. Free of judgement and full of forgiveness and love. Staying strong in You and Your almighty power. (r or l)  Remembering that if I get nothing else done this day, let me spend it loving You and others first, as You love me. Praying in the Spirit in the now of each moment for me and mine in fulfillment of Your will. Being alert to always pray for those You place in my path. Asking that whenever I speak, words may be given to me, so that I will fearlessly make known the truth in the mystery of the gospel – one walk. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
