Carry God’s word with you

In Scripture, prayer is our response to God’s revelation, the human answer to divine speech.

 We can address God only because God has first addressed us — in creation, certainly, but especially in his word.

Hence, the Bible’s book of prayers begins with an exhortation to meditation God’s word (Psalm 1:2). The praises, laments, and confessions that follow are all the fruit of delighting “in the law of the Lord” and meditating upon it “day and night.”

 The psalmists, having breathed in God’s word, cannot help but breathe out prayer.
