Opening Prayer: For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken. (Psalm 62:1-2, ESV)
Scripture: Psalm 62:1-8
Journal: How are you waiting on God these days? What does that look like? What is it doing within you? How might God be waiting on you?
Reflection: He works in tranquility and tranquility seldom goes in partnership with speed. God breaks few records but he always arrives in the end. One of the best things we can do for our souls is to wait and one of the worst things is to force the issue. God lets the plant grow at its own pace. (The Fruits of the Spirit by Evelyn Underhill)
Prayer for the church, for others, for myself

PALM (Preparing Arab-World Leaders for Ministry) is Arab World Media's discipleship and theological training ministry. It provides high quality leadership and discipleship training materials in Arabic, Kabyle and French. It is an excellent way to meet the need for training in leadership and ministry among Muslim background believers throughout North Africa, Middle East and Arabian Peninsula. Pray today for peace in the Middle East and for God's angels to hover over the region, protecting the innocent.
Closing Prayer: For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken. On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. (Psalm 62:5-8, ESV)
