When you just need quiet time with the Lord but it’s sometimes hard to put into words your thoughts, I found that using the Psalms as your prayers are a beautiful way to speak to the Lord until you are able to use your own words. I find that sometimes my worry and anxiety gets the best of me and I am unable to talk to God in the intimate way that I desire. This week, I’ve been focusing on Psalm 4 about trust. I pick out verses or words of the Psalm and just contemplate in quiet time with the Lord. For me, it is a great way to spend time with the Lord.
A psalm of David.
In my troubles, you cleared a way;
show me favor; hear my prayer.
love what is worthless, chase after lies? Selah
the LORD hears when I call out.
upon your beds ponder in silence.
LORD, show us the light of your face!” Selah
than they have when grain and wine abound.
for you alone, LORD, make me secure.
