Expectant Lament

Today's reading: Psalm 6:1-10

David is in a difficult place physically and emotionally. He's tired and weary, and in this state he humbly asks God for relief. Yet even though his circumstances seem dire, David doesn't lose heart in God. Instead, he is expectant for God to move on his behalf and confidently closes his prayer by proclaiming that the Lord has heard and accepted his prayer and that He would take action.

How does praying candidly to God influence your thinking, attitude and actions? Do you pray expectant prayers? In other words, do you believe that God hears your prayers and pray with the expectation that He will answer them? Why is this important? Tami
