KEY VERSEPsalm 86:6–7
Listen closely to my prayer, O Lord; hear my urgent cry. I will call to you whenever I’m in trouble, and you will answer me.

You have many options in the world. You can pursue happiness and satisfy most of your desires in a variety of ways. But I want you to seek me. I want your undivided heart, because only I can satisfy your greatest needs and your deepest longing. Consider the source for your answers or your pleasure. Is it a trustworthy source, one you can depend on again and again and again?

Put your trust in me. Try it, and you’ll discover I am forgiving and good. I am abounding in love to all who call on me, so call on me, and I will answer. Cry out to me, for I hear you. Cry out to me, for I will guard your life. I will give you purpose in life and lead you on an adventure that will bring more joy and satisfaction than you thought possible. But you must follow me. Follow me and see what’s next.

Set the alarm on your phone or watch to go off five or more times today, and each time stop what you’re doing and pray. It doesn’t have to be a long prayer. Just pause to pray, and then continue what you were doing.
