Longing for God – Day 240

Bible text(s)

The Prayer of Someone in Exile

1As a deer longs for a stream of cool water,

so I long for you, O God.

2I thirst for you, the living God;

when can I go and worship in your presence?

3Day and night I cry,

and tears are my only food;

all the time my enemies ask me,

“Where is your God?”

Psalms 42:1-3GNBOpen in Bible reader

Prayer: the astonishing privilege of talking with God. These readings include prayers of longing and lament, Jesus’ teaching on prayer, and some of the best loved prayers in the Bible
