Psalm 86:1-12 (NIV)
1 Hear me, Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy. 2 Guard my life, for I am faithful to you; save your servant who trusts in you. You are my God; 3 have mercy on me, Lord, for I call to you all day long. 4 Bring joy to your servant, Lord, for I put my trust in you. 5 You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you. 6 Hear my prayer, Lord; listen to my cry for mercy. 7 When I am in distress, I call to you, because you answer me. 8 Among the gods there is none like you, Lord; no deeds can compare with yours. 9 All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, Lord; they will bring glory to your name. 10 For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God. 11 Teach me your way, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. 12 I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever.

Today’s devotion time is simple. Take a moment to think about all the things you know about God. Focus on how God has shown you grace; how God has loved you with an unending love. And then, read this Psalm again. Today, let our prayer be one of thanksgiving as we give thanks “with our whole heart” (Psalm 86:12) and glorify God’s name forever. Amen. http://sothrichfield.podbean.com
