Chapter-a-Day Psalm 17

Prayer_boardI call to you, God, because I’m sure of an answer. Psalm 17:6a (TM)

This verse struck me this morning, not only because of David’s faith (being sure of an answer), but also the fact that his faith motivated him to pray. Because he was sure God would answer, it spurred him to call out to God. I have seen God answer prayer so many times in so many ways, but I have to admit that I’m still not always motivated to pray. It often seems like a chore – another check on the spiritual to-do list.

I need a little of David’s heart today.
