Unperturbed: Living the Life Above | Part Seven.

As I continue in my meditations in Daniel 6:10 this afternoon, my mind is drawn to Psalm 61. This came from the question, why do we pray in the day of visitation? Why did Daniel pray? Why did Jesus pray? What did Jesus mean when he told the disciples to pray lest they enter into temptation?

What were the disciples expected to pray about? What did Jesus and Daniel pray about? It is clear in scriptures what Jesus prayed about, and we can infer what Daniel did from Jesus'. This leads us to the instruction of Psalm 61. The first two verses read,

"Hear my cry, O God; attend to my prayer. From the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I."

It is not a time to pray all the questionable "fall down and die" prayers. God's focus is not the wicked. His focus in allowing the crisis is His own children. He did not allow the crisis to happen to us, but for us. He allowed the crisis to make us Holy, to make us better, to make us stronger, to make us tighter to and with home - Himself.

The instruction is "Lead me to the rock." It is lead me to fellowship. Lead me to my well, my source, my rest, my home. It is lead me to your heart o God.

May God make this whole in our hearts.

The Saint.
