Do you desire to be refreshed by the Lord, but you don’t know where to start? Starting with prayer is one of the best ways to reconnect with God. The Bible is full of prayers that were spoken or sung in times of victory, distress, sadness, trial, joy, solitude, and celebration. As we seek the Lord for renewal in our hearts, our families, and in our churches, we begin this week with a look at Psalm 32, one of the clearest expressions of confession and forgiveness in the entire Bible.

A Maskil of David.
 Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven,
whose sin is covered.
 Blessed is the man against whom the LORD counts no iniquity,
and in whose spirit there is no deceit.
 For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away
through my groaning all day long.
 For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;
my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. Selah
 I acknowledged my sin to you,
and I did not cover my iniquity;
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the LORD,”
and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah
 Therefore let everyone who is godly
offer prayer to you at a time when you may be found;
surely in the rush of great waters,
they shall not reach him.
 You are a hiding place for me;
you preserve me from trouble;
you surround me with shouts of deliverance. Selah
 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will counsel you with my eye upon you.
 Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding,
which must be curbed with bit and bridle,
or it will not stay near you.
 Many are the sorrows of the wicked,
but steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in the LORD.
 Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, O righteous,
and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!
