Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer; listen to my cry of supplication.  In the day of my trouble I call on you, for you will answer me. – Psalm 86:6-7

Supplication is a word rarely used today, yet our cries of supplication as described in Psalm 86 are numerous. God – Help me get through this day. God – Show me the way. God – Help me be my better self in dealing with all the challenges I face.

Humble requests for support. When we make such prayers, most of us don’t anticipate a Psalm 86:7 answer from God. Instead, it’s an opportunity to focus on the issue with the aid of God-like perspective in humble recognition that it will take more than just us to reach full resolution.

ACTION: what supplication prayers can you “whisper or shoot” directly to God today?

Enjoy the day, filled with the Spirit!
