Each morning you listen to my prayer, as I bring my requests to you and wait for your reply (Psalm 5:3, CEV).

Reflection

This week’s I Love the Psalms theme is prayer.

The sunrises every morning and pours its splendor across the sky. When we rise, do we pour out our prayers—our thoughts and hopes to God?

There is a beautiful humility in prayer. We don’t have the answer. We are waiting on God because He does. We can see that in today’s verse from the Psalms:

Each morning you listen to my prayer, as I bring my requests to you and wait for your reply (Psalm 5:3, CEV).

People who pray are usually good at bringing requests to God, but are we good at waiting for His reply? I am often guilty of rushing into my day—rushing past the sunrise too busy to wait and appreciate.

Our Lord takes the time to listen to us each morning. How wonderful is that!

Response: LORD God, thank you for taking the time to hear our requests. I confess I need reminders to wait for your reply. Give me ears to hear and eyes to see what you are doing. Amen.

Your Turn: Have you learned to wait on God? How do we train ourselves to wait?
