Psalm 118:5 "In my anguish I cried out to the Lord, and He answered by setting me free."<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
God may not always set us free from our trials, He may not always remove them from our path however He will not leave us and He will always answer us. We not always like the answer, especially when it is making us go through the storm and not around it, but He will answer us and He will never leave us so we can cling to Him through it all.
Dear Father, Thank You for the gift of prayer and the open line of communication it leaves between You and me. Please help me to remember that although Your answer may not always be "yes" there will be an answer...please help me to accept all Your answers with a grateful heart. Amen.

If you read the entire Psalm 59 it will almost seem as if this verse is out of place...David is being risen up against by his enemies for no wrongs done, yet here he stops in his pleas for help to take time to praise our awesome God! It is not out of place, it is an amazing lesson all in one little chapter! When times are tough, and it seems everything is against us, it is so important to stop ourselves, in the midst of our please for help, and thank and praise our Lord from the bottom of our hearts for all the blessings He has and does grant us day in and day out.
Heavenly Lord, I want to thank You for all the gracious blessings You have bestowed upon me and my family. I want to thank You for always being my help, my fortress, my loving God in times of trouble. Please help me to always have my heart in the right place and to remember to praise Your holy and awesome Name no matter what I may be going through. Amen.

It's another one of those, "OOOOO, I want that!" mornings! I love the use of the word overflow here when talking about hope. I think we all need a little overflow of hope in our lives, don't you? What an awesome prayer here!
Dear Father, I am continually amazed at the simple and awesome power of one single verse in my heart as I read it. Thank You for Your hope, joy and peace in our lives. May You please fill us all until we are overflowing with Your hope! Amen.
