Devotion: “I love you, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.” ~ Psalm 18:1-3 (ESV)
Challenge: Focus of Prayer… The central focus of our prayers shows what is most important to us: wealth, family, work, stuff, health, etc. St. Augustine wrote in his Confessions, “Wherever the soul of man turns, unless towards God, it cleaves to sorrow, even though the things outside God and outside itself to which it cleaves may be things of beauty.” Although these things in themselves are not necessarily wrong they should not take centre stage. How much time are you giving God in your prayer life?
