As a deer longs for flowing streams, so my soul longs for you, O God. Psalm 42:1
Prayer - Gracious God increase my thirst and hunger for you. Help me to see in the busyness and the distractions of this day quiet places where I might turn to you. Grant my soul a measure of your Spirit and peace. Amen.

Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my help and my God. Psalm 42:5–6a
Prayer - Faithful God, I know you can handle my questions and my doubts. I know that no thought or feeling in me is unknown to you. In this moment, I give it all to you—all that grieves me, all that gives me anxiety, all that makes me angry. I entrust these things to you, and I put my hope in you, too. Sustain my hope, O God my help. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Do not drag me away with the wicked, with those who are workers of evil, who speak peace with their neighbors, while mischief is in their hearts. Psalm 28:3
Prayer - Holy God, in all that I do today, may I be honest and loving. In all that I think today, may I be honest and loving. In all that I say today, may I be honest and loving. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Psalm 19:1
Prayer - Omniscient God, we praise you for being the all-knowing, wise Creator. Thank you, Lord, that even the vast heavens realize that your work is awesome, and that You are to be praised. Help us find something beautiful in nature today, and to find awe in it, and therefore in You.

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14
Prayer - Father God, you are my rock, my strength, my redeemer. It is through Christ you have restored my shame. I give thanks to you this day; I give thanks to you for the gift of your Holy Word and the power of your Holy Spirit that quiets my heart, my mind, and my soul to guide me in your ways. As I begin this new day, this new hour, this new minute, I pray that all that I do, all that I say, all that I think will honor you and that my life will continue to be a witness to your mercy and grace, and to your love and glory. Amen.
