A Man After God’s Own Heart

A man kneels in prayer in the woods

I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after Mine own heart, which shall fulfill all my will.—Acts 13:22 (KJV)

Despite King David’s flaws he is described in the Bible as “a man after God’s own heart.” Although David was not perfect, his mind, will and soul were in accord with God. David serves as an example of how to live a humble, respectful, faithful, obedient and devoted life.

Today's Prayer:

Merciful God, though my actions and thoughts may not always be perfect, I long for you to say, “You are truly after my own heart!”
