Psalms for Prayer: Day 7

Weekly Truth

by

Today's Text: Psalm 27:7-8

Scripture is God-breathed and true. When we memorize it, we carry the gospel with us wherever we go.

This week we will memorize the key verses for this reading plan.

LORD, hear my voice when I call;
be gracious to me and answer me.
My heart says this about you:
“Seek his face.”
LORD, I will seek your face.
—Psalm 27:7-8

Save the image below as a lock screen for your phone so you can read these words throughout the day.

    I suffered with anxiety for 12 years and through his word I am able to take each day each event in my life apply his word and not have anxiety praise you Lord God your mercies are new every day.

  • Shay Lynn

    This is a great weekly truth

  • Emily Dick

    The reminders to always seek God help me when I feel alone.

  • Laura Troutman

    Lord I pray that I can direct myself towards you and desire to be like you lord. I am yours not the worlds.

  • Haley Hanson

    I love the verse. It’s a good reminder that I should always be seeking the Lord, even in the most mundane things.

  • Alyssa Baker

    I will seek you and know you Lord. Lift my eyes to you and not toward the things of this world.

  • Gabrielle Baggett

    I’ve been battling anxiety and depression lately and feel as though it’s impossible to seek His face. Praying that God makes himself known and visible and that His presence is what I hold on to.

    • She Reads Truth

      Thank you for sharing Gabrielle. We’re praying for you during this time -for continued encouragement and comfort. We’re grateful for you! -Margot, The SRT Team

    • Bethany

      I have struggled with anxiety and depression for a long time. I had bad postpartum depression and anxiety, and then I experienced a pregnancy loss last year that sent me into a faith crisis tailspin. Everyone told me to “press into Jesus” but I just couldn’t figure out HOW. What I found to be the most helpful was to confide in Christ-centered women who would feed me scripture and pray – seriously pray – for me. I was too weak and weary to do it myself. 8 months later, I feel like I’m only just emerging from my grief and I am so grateful for these women who have been praying for me. I will put you on my prayer list. Please reach out if you need a virtual friend. The pain of depression and anxiety is too much to bear alone.

    • Summer Roughton

      Thank you for sharing your hurts. I am slowly (extremely slowly) coming out of depression and anxiety. It seems to be a very long hard battle. Praying that you are able to find comfort and peace in a beautiful way. All of Psalm 27 is such a comfort to me. Knowing the beauty of God is breathtaking for me right now. Praying that you can dwell with Jesus in your hurts.

  • Rene' Bancroft

    Whoa! This is hitting me in a new tender spot ~ my heart is ALREADY telling me to seek His face! And now I will declare out loud, I WILL seek His face!!! Amen!!!

  • Rene' Bancroft

    Whoa! This is hitting me in a new tender spot ~ my heart is ALREADY telling me to seek His face! And now I will confess out loud,

  • Peony Noirr

    ❤️❤️❤️

  • Annette Enkhorn

    Memorizing has always been difficult for me. I’m praying for His help and believing that He will <3

    • Susan

      Me too! I pray this for both of us. I do not always get the verses totally correct, but not sure that is the important thing. As long as I am hiding God’s word in my heart and mind and can recall it to my mind when needed as best I am able, that is what is important. It is definitely a journey. Don’t give up.

      • Annette Enkhorn

        I won’t and I agree with you Susan…God knows our hearts and will continue to be faithful to bring His Word to our minds as we keep studying and sharing with others. <3

  • Brittany Holmes

    I’ve got the Scripture set as my lock screen. Hopefully my hubby doesn’t feel some type of way about being replaced. Ha ha.
    How beautiful of a reminder is it, though, that our job in prayer is to seek the face of God. It’s not enough to have what’s in His hand. I want to see Him. As I know Him, I hear His voice.

  • Candice Lofton

    This is so sweet to me. My two week old is not gaining weight like he should and it has taken a toll on my heart this week. So grateful for the reminder to seek God’s face & trust His hand, He loves my son even more than me. ♥️

    • Denise Powers Fabian

      Praying for you, Candice, and your little boy

    • Brittany Holmes

      I’ve been there with each of my children. I’ve cried in the doctor’s office and felt like a horrible mother. I’ve tried all the herbal supplements and even Rx and still wasn’t able to produce enough milk to sustain my babies. I persevered and cried out, “Why?” In the end, I turned to formula to provide for my babies. I had to constantly encourage myself that they were being taken care of. That’s what really mattered. My children are so smart and strong regardless of my inability to provide breastmilk for them (which I ALMOST ordered from the black market. Ha ha)
      Be free of that guilt and shame. It’s not yours to bear.

  • Can you all please pray? My friend Nathan is in a coma and halfway across the world. Please pray for him and for his mom and sister and that they raise enough money to pay for the medical bills. Another one of my friends is currently experiencing homelessness and we’re trying to help her apply to live at a Christian camp. Please pray that God will make her path straight. Another friend is grieving for her passed grandpa and only has a few days left to hear back from a college in order to apply for next year. My cousin is chronically ill and her throat is closing. A friend is doing drugs and might put off going to college. Two of my wonderful teachers I’ve known for years have cancer. Please pray for healing and God’s grace.

    • Krystle

      Praying! God has the control in each and every one of these circumstances, and He is already working it for their good! ❤️

    • She Reads Truth

      Thanks for sharing Katelyn. We’re praying for healing and God’s grace over all of these people in your life. We’re grateful that you’re here! -Margot, The SRT Team

  • I encourage my sisters to read the whole psalm. It’s all about Gods faithfulness and waiting on Him. Such encouragement when things get hard and God seems distant. He is always our hope and salvation!

  • Terrisa Stewart

    After doing a meditation about great friends. This weekly truth is the best reminder for me to seek God as I look for those great friends in my life. For I need God’s guidance to truly understand and see who those great friends are.

  • Churchmouse

    Yes. I’m determined to gaze at the face of God and merely glance at my problems. I’m trying to keep the right perspective. He is always bigger. He is more than able.

  • Kelly Chataine

    Your face LORD is what I seek!

  • Ashley Ann
