One Thing I Ask of the Lord!” Psalm 27:4 

What did David ask for as his prayer request as he considered all his needs, concerns and responsibilities?

How would he decide what his top desire would be considering that his life story was one of responsibility, danger, and seemingly insurmountable challenges? His request, “That I may dwell in the house of the Lord  all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple.” Is that It? What is the wisdom in that choice?

What is your one wish that you bring to the Lord this morning? Is David’s wish your wish? Do you want to be in God’s house all the days of your life? How will God lead you, what is the process in which this happens and how will that change your life?                   

Question: How many psalms did David write?

Answer: King David gave us the Book of Psalms. Seventy-three of the 150 bear his name. David is also mentioned as the author of two additional psalms by writers in the New Testament. Psalm 2 is attributed to David in Acts 4:25and Psalm 95 is attributed to David in Hebrews 4:7. Many experts also believe that the unattributed ones are also from David. Tradition teaches that we may thank David for recording all the psalms in their permanent form and in a single book. If not for King David, those Psalms would have been lost.
