Praying the Psalms- Psalm 63

Jenny is on a journey of praying her way through the Psalms.  I was fortunate enough to join at the start.  Each weekend, we pray through one psalm and post our prayer and/or meditations on that psalm as the Lord leads. Check out her journey and join us in Praying the Psalms.

Psalm 63

I've written about this psalm before.  Salvation is a gift- once received it needs never to be sought again.  But soul satisfaction?  This must be pursued, lest we become weary, starved and dry.  
"O God, you are my God, 
   earnestly I seek you; 
my soul thirsts for you, 
   my body longs for you, 
in a dry and weary land 
   where there is no water."  Psalm 63: 1
Father, thank You for setting your affections on me, for choosing me and loving me.  Thank You for the indescribable gift of eternal life.  Help me, O God, to seek You earnestly.  Do not let my quiet times with You become just another item on my to do list but let them be times of devotion and intimacy with You, the lover of my soul.  Give me the desire to pursue You and to partake of the Sacred romance.  In Jesus's name, amen.
"My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you."  Psalm 63: 5

What a beautiful comment you left me this morning. Guatemala is very dear to us, we minister there as a church 4 times a year.

I have told you this before, but I love, love your blog design. It's beautiful.

Have a wonderful Lord's Day.
