Psalm 27:1-6, 1 Samuel 1:1-20, Galatians 1:11-24

What is the one thing that you ask of the Lord? What is the one thing you seek the most?

The Psalmist wanted to live in the house of the Lord all of the days of his life, delighting in the Lord's perfections, and meditating in his Temple.

Hannah was feeling discouraged and poured her heart out to the Lord, and asked for a son, for she was childless.

Paul received the Gospel message via direct revelation from Jesus. Even though he was a zealous Jewish man, and strongly opposed Christianity, God had chosen him before he was born to eventually be the one who was so passionate about Christianity that he would be the one to preach the Good News of Jesus to the Gentiles.

What has God placed on your heart? Do you seek time with the Lord? Do you seek a family? Do you seek the Gospel? Something else? All of the above?
How have you seen the Lord answer your prayers in the past?

Pray through Psalm 37:3-7a

Trust in the Lord and do good.
Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.
Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you your heart’s desires.
Commit everything you do to the Lord.
Trust him, and he will help you.
He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn,
and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun.
Be still in the presence of the Lord,
and wait patiently for him to act.
