Sometimes the best way to talk to God is through words that have been prayed for thousands of years; words that God inspired people like David to write. Here’s one prayer that’s often given me the right words to use. I memorised them ages ago. Can you do that today?

‘Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting’

Psalm 139v23-24 ( http://bit.ly/1mP1N3m )

Search, test, see, lead. Those may seem scary things to invite God to do inside you. But God is good – and can bring grace to heal and transform whatever God might find.
