Day 114: David Saves Keilah

Psalm 54 The author of this psalm fled, seeking refuge and protection from his pursuers. Perhaps it refers to David’s flight from the wrath of Saul, though the sentiments expressed here can apply to anyone.

With a freewill…it is good: This is a clear parallel to the Sacrifice of Christ, who obeyed the father and willingly gave his life as an offering for our sins. (CCC 207)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, we give you praise and glory. We thank you. We thank you for the fact that you are just and you are good and you continually speak to us, Lord God, and sometimes in our prayer you are quiet. Sometimes in our prayer, we ask for a specific answer and you are silent. And you don’t speak in the way that we would prefer. But, Lord God, you continue to speak. You continue to speak to us through your Word. You continue to speak to us every single day that we press play and just allow your word to reach our ears and allow your word to touch and transform our hearts. And so this day, just like David, we ask for your guidance. We ask for your will to be made known not only in Sacred Scripture, Lord God, not only through the Church, but also in our prayer. We ask that you please, and also in the people around us, we ask that you just in everything your will is done. In everything you are glorified and we give you praise and glory right now. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be world without end. Amen.”
