Daily Scripture:

‘And I said: ‘O that I had wings like a dove, for then would I fly away and be at rest.

In the evening and morning and at noonday I will pray and make my supplication, and he shall hear my voice’. (Psalm 55:7&19)

Daily Reflection:

David, King David, is thought to have written many of the Psalms. We know that King David was close to God, but even he had times when the problems and pressures of life meant he wanted to escape from them from time to time. “O that I had wings like a dove, then I would fly away and be at rest.” David’s solution though is not to forget about God when things feel tough for him; in fact, it is the exact opposite. David’s answer is to pray to God first thing in the morning, in the middle of the day, and at the end of the day. Bringing to God his problems and asking for God’s help; for he knows God will hear. We could learn from King David.
