David went to the Lord in prayer even for his little decisions. Even everyday decisions can be taken to God in prayer.
18 Now the Philistines had come and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim; 19 so David inquired of the Lord, “Shall I go and attack the Philistines? Will you deliver them into my hands?”
The Lord answered him, “Go, for I will surely deliver the Philistines into your hands.”
20 So David went to Baal Perazim, and there he defeated them. He said, “As waters break out, the Lord has broken out against my enemies before me.” So that place was called Baal Perazim.[c] 21 The Philistines abandoned their idols there, and David and his men carried them off.
22 Once more the Philistines came up and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim; 23 so David inquired of the Lord, and he answered, “Do not go straight up, but circle around behind them and attack them in front of the poplar trees. 24 As soon as you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the poplar trees, move quickly, because that will mean the Lord has gone out in front of you to strike the Philistine army.” 25 So David did as the Lord commanded him, and he struck down the Philistines all the way from Gibeon[d] to Gezer.
2 Samuel 5:18-25
Seeking direction from God is bedrock for every believer. I want to pray prayers that help me listen for God’s direction and trust in his leading.
What are some little, daily things we can pray:
Where are you leading me?
How can you use me?
Who needs to experience your love?
Would you direct me?
Help me to see you at work in this.
Should I go?
I’m yours Lord and I will obey you.
Give me the strength to make it through.
Pray Continually. – 1 Thes. 5:17
