Day Five: Love Found Us to Pray

Psalm 36:9-10 NLT For you are the fountain of life, …
Pour out your unfailing love on those who love you; give justice to those with honest hearts.

There is nothing like the unfailing love of Jesus!
David responds to this fountain of life, and prays, “Pour out your unfailing love…”

“Whatever the shape of our prayer, wherever or whatever we are or have been, we are never without the grace and goodness of God…the psalmist describes our own experience of what has been and what will be:

…Blessed are those whose strength you are,
In whose hearts are the roads to Zion.
As they go through the bitter valley,
they make it a place of springs…

For those who long for God, who seek a life of prayer and love, every bitter valley at last will become a place of springs. Human beings cannot make springs. All prayer, all life, all love finally are the gifts of God’s generous grace that waters the world like the rivers of Paradise.” [Roberta C. Bondi, To Pray & To Love, p.138]

Our continuing response to God’s indescribable love is to “water the world” with ongoing urgent prayers for those who need to be found by the love of Jesus.

Let’s sing, “Fullness” by Elevation Worship (Click here).

As we do, pray: Lord, pour out your unfailing love on our college/graduate campuses, on the singles and families in our cities/communities, on the youth of this generation! May “love found me” be their heart cry! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
