David the King    

David the King



Hashem received such great joy and satisfaction from David’s actions that He made him a shining example who lit up the world with the light of prayer.

 



with translation by Rabbi Lazer Brody and illustrations by Rebecca Shapiro

 
David the Shepherd Boy, Part 12 - Conclusion
 
When David the shepherd boy grew up and became king, he never stopped praying to Hashem. Even more so, when he became an adult, he prayed more than ever before.
 
Some of his prayers were written down in the wonderful, holy Book of Psalms.  In Hebrew, they are called “tehillim.” 
 
By reciting prayers with David’s beautiful and heartfelt words, everyone - including you - can pray to Hashem, say praises, give thanks, beg, and make requests...anywhere, anytime, and in any language!
 
David composed prayers for everyone to use, because he was always speaking to Hashem.  From the time he was a boy, he asked for whatever he needed by praying to Hashem.
 
Hashem received such great joy and satisfaction from David’s actions that He made him a shining example who lit up the world with the light of prayer.  David taught us the power of our personal prayers and that all people can, and should, speak to Hashem all the time.
 
David also showed us that even children like you can speak to Hashem by yourself and write songs and praises to Hashem.  And you don’t even have to sing on key!
 
Want to know how? 
 
It’s simple! 
 
 
Just say, “Hashem, dearest Father, help me!  Have mercy on me! Always watch over me! In Your kindness, give me words of prayer and the desire to talk to You. Teach me to ask You for whatever I need. Assure me that I can always rely on You, and that You are always with me.  Open my lips, so I may praise You.  Let me always turn only to You, because You are always there, anytime, anywhere. Thank You, Hashem. In Your great loving kindness, answer me with Your true salvation always, amen.”
