PRAYING FOR FAMILY, FRIENDS, CHURCH AND NATION
May your heart cry out to God all day long through times of sacred retreat (Psm 84:2,4). #HeartsOfPraise #Prayer #SacredRetreat
HERE IS ONE MORE THOUGHT FOR THE PRAYER SENTRY ON THE WALL
MORNING WATCH NOTES:
Are we hungry for time with God? Are we hungry to enter into the courts of heaven, to be with God daily, living every moment before him? P.T. Forsythe said of Psalm 84:2, “Prayer brings with it, as food does, a new sense of power and health“ [You may not remember what you ate six months ago, but it nourished you. In the same way, scripture and prayer nourishes your soul]. Forsythe continues, “We are driven to [prayer] by hunger [we faint for spiritual food], and having eaten we are refreshed.” *
Lord, my heart cries out for you in the morning watches. It cries out all day long for sacred retreat. Lord, may this old prayer sentry enter into his personal cathedral of praise to worship and commune with you (listen, talk, be silent and meditate).
MAY IT BE SO FOR EVERY PRAYER SENTRY ON THE WALL
