Running to God

As the deer pants for the water brooks, so my soul pants for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. – Psalm 42:1-2 NASB   I have been running, running, running in all different directions, but I need to run to You now and stay here in Your presence. I am thirsting for You as I have never thirsted before. My future looks bleak. I cannot see beyond my troubles. But I now focus on Your light. It warms my skin, touches my heart, and speaks to my soul. I  join my spirit with Yours and rest here at Your feet. Amen.   [from Power Prayers to Start Your Day by Donna Maltese]


My Friends

“Is this your loyalty to your friend? Why did you not go with your friend?” – 2 Samuel 16:17 NASB   Lord, I want to be a better friend to those I love. Help me to be trustworthy, devoted, and reliable. Give me the power of encouragement, so that I may be at their side with a ready word and a shoulder to lean on, with love in my heart and a prayer on my lips. I want to clothe others with the warmth of friendship. Make me a true friend. Amen.   [from Power Prayers to Start Your Day by Donna Maltese]
