Text: Psalm 1.1-3

In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly. Psalm 5.3

Psalms is a book filled with rich poetic words—each chapter is a window into someone else’s private prayer life. This collection of songs and poems comes from individuals who embraced the space Ada Bible Church calls The Chair. Imagine if men and women didn’t take the time to engage with God on a personal level, expressing their hearts to him with honesty and boldness and praise. Perhaps we wouldn’t have the Psalms to read, learn from, and enjoy.

The Chair is like The Row and The Circle in that each one involves a pattern of consistency. However, though The Row and The Circle are equally important, they can only go so far. The Chair is the one space where you can “meditate on [God’s Word] day and night” (Psalm 1.2) and where you can lay your very personal requests before the Lord (Psalm 5.3).

Just like the Psalmists formed a habit of meeting with God, decide a time and a place where you can regularly meditate on God’s Word and lay your personal requests before him.
