Wednesday [BE>DO]:
Think about this week’s questions for group discussion.
  1. Read v. 1-7 again. What can you identify as the greatest petitions of David’s heart? Are they consistent with yours? How might God be using the present circumstances to expose our true needs … and the only truth source of help?
  2. In v. 11 David prays that God would “unify his heart.” What is he praying for, exactly? How do you believe God may be using our present circumstances to do just that in the hearts of his people?
  3. We often see the phrase “but you” setting a transition from a temporary reality to the eternal reality of who God is. From your own perspective in our present situation, how many “but you” statements can you and your family/group come up with?
