“SCHOOLED!” FAITH

2013 READ the BIBLE in a YEAR Today’s Reading 1 Chronicles 25-27 / Psalm 77

schooled faith

The 77th Psalm starts out with these verses:  I cry out to God; yes, I shout. Oh, that God would listen to me! 2 When I was in deep trouble, I searched for the Lord. All night long I prayed, with hands lifted toward heaven, but my soul was not comforted.3 I think of God, and I moan, overwhelmed with longing for his help.

Cried out – SHOUT! – Searched – “ALL NIGHT LONG” – Prayed – Lifted hands – Moaned

When it comes to the majority of my prayers, I usually have some pretty warm covers putted up over my shoulders, and my prayers are for the most part thoughts in my head, not words from my mouth.

I think the Psalmist just “schooled me” – taught me I don’t know the first thing about prayer.

So I cry out: Teach me! I shout: HELP ME !
I search for the LORD
[OK, not all night long – but it is night for the record]
I pray: Thank you
I lift my hands in surrender
And I moan, not is agony, but in desperation:

Father,
I don’t know what to say, what to ask, give me vision, give me boldness, give me love, give me faith, give me mercy, teach me to give.
