"O Lord, thou hast searched me, and known me" (Psalm 139:1).


There are two things worth noticing in this statement from the psalmist. First, it is a recognition of the fact that God knows us, is intimately acquainted with us. Second, it is a prayer: it is a prayer from the psalmist, talking to God, and recognizing God’s ever-presence with him.

This, in a nutshell, is "prayer as walking with God." It is allowing our realization of God’s constant presence with us, and intimate knowledge of us, to lead us to talk to God – any time, anywhere, while we are doing anything. It is learning to talk to God constantly, because we have come to realize that God is constantly with us.

The total picture, then, is of a God who knows his people intimately, and of a people who know their God intimately.
