Scripture

Psalm 146

Shout praises to the Lord!
With all that I am,
I will shout his praises.
I will sing
and praise
the Lord God
for as long as I live.
You can’t depend on anyone,
not even a great leader.
Once they die and are buried,
that will be the end
of all their plans.
The Lord God of Jacob blesses
everyone
who trusts him
and depends on him.
God made heaven and earth;
he created the sea
and everything else.
God always keeps his word.
He gives justice to the poor
and food to the hungry.
The Lord sets prisoners free
and heals blind eyes.
He gives a helping hand
to everyone who falls.
The Lord loves good people
and looks after strangers.
He defends the rights
of orphans and widows,
but destroys the wicked.
The Lord God of Zion
will rule forever!
Shout praises to the Lord!

Reflection prompts

  • As you inhale and exhale, reread verses 8 and 9 Allow those words to sink into your bones so that you can sing God’s praises all day long
Psalm 146:8-9
and heals blind eyes.
He gives a helping hand
to everyone who falls.
The Lord loves good people
and looks after strangers.
He defends the rights
of orphans and widows,
but destroys the wicked.

Prayer

God of the air in our lungs, at the end of my life, I will ask, “Did I do enough?" Will there be less prisoners, less widows, less orphans, less suffering? Will I have cared about the people you care about? Will I have made a difference?Keep your words in my mouth until I do. Amen. —Prayer by Rev. Sarah Are | A Sanctified Art LLC | sanctifiedart.org
