READ PSALM 119:25-32.
“I’m feeling terrible—I couldn’t feel worse! Get me on my feet again. You promised, remember? When I told my story,
You responded; train me well in Your deep wisdom. Help me understand these things inside and out so I can ponder
Your miracle-wonders. My sad life’s dilapidated, a falling-down barn; build me up again by Your Word. Barricade
the road that goes nowhere; grace me with Your clear revelation. I choose the true road to somewhere; I post Your road
signs at every curve and corner. I grasp and cling to whatever You tell me; God, don’t let me down! I’ll run the course
You lay out for me if You’ll just show me how.”
—Psalm 119:25-32 (MSG)
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT FOR TODAY
When things go wrong, and life seems difficult, and troubles overwhelm us, it’s time to grasp on to
the words He has given us. His Word and His Spirit in us will help us stay on course.
1. A PRAYER FOR MY LIFE:
Dear Lord, when things get hard, and everything seems to go wrong, help me to cling to Your Word.
2. A PRAYER FOR THE CHURCH:
Lord, may children be discipled to follow Your deep wisdom and equipped to grow into young men
and women of faith. Give parents wisdom and spiritual guidance, in moments of great joy as well as
in times of trial.
3. A PRAYER FOR OUR WORLD:
Lord, help teens and single parents worldwide to further discover Your plans and purposes. In times
when they couldn’t feel worse, build them back up.
