Sunday Solitude

Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16)

Be like Jesus. Get alone with your Heavenly Father right now and pray.

Here’s a prayer excerpted from Psalm 18. It was written by David, whom the Bible calls “a man after God’s own heart.” Pray through it with all your heart.

I love you, Lord, my strength.

The Lord is my rock,
my fortress and my deliverer;
my God is my rock,
in whom I take refuge,
my shield
and the horn of my salvation,
my stronghold.

In my distress I called to the Lord;
I cried to my God for help.
From his temple he heard my voice;
my cry came before him, into his ears.

He reached down from on high
and took hold of me;
he drew me out of deep waters.

He rescued me from my powerful enemy,
from my foes, who were too strong for me.

You, Lord, keep my lamp burning;
my God turns my darkness into light.
With your help
I can advance against a troop;
with my God I can scale a wall.

As for God, his way is perfect:
The Lord’s word is flawless;
he shields all who take refuge in him.

For who is God besides the Lord?
And who is the Rock except our God?

The Lord lives! Praise be to my Rock!

Exalted be God my Savior!

Amen!
