Psalm 103: 1Bless the Lord, O my soul,     and all that is within me,     bless his holy name. 2 Bless the Lord, O my soul,     and do not forget all his benefits— 3 who forgives all your iniquity,     who heals all your diseases, 4 who redeems your life from the Pit,     who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, 5 who satisfies you with good as long as you live     so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. 6 The Lord works vindication     and justice for all who are oppressed. 7 He made known his ways to Moses, [...]

Psalm 19: 1 The heavens declare the glory of God;     the skies proclaim the work of his hands. 2 Day after day they pour forth speech;     night after night they reveal knowledge. 3 They have no speech, they use no words;     no sound is heard from them. 4 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,     their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun. 5     It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,     like a champion rejoicing to run his course. 6 It [...]

Scripture: Psalm 107 NIV 1 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;     his love endures forever. 2 Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story—     those he redeemed from the hand of the foe, 3 those he gathered from the lands,     from east and west, from north and south. 4 Some wandered in desert wastelands,     finding no way to a city where they could settle. 5 They were hungry and thirsty,     and their lives ebbed away. 6 Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,     and he delivered them from their distress. 7 He [...]

Scripture: Psalm 3 NRSV 1 O Lord, how many are my foes!    Many are rising against me;  2 many are saying to me,    ‘There is no help for you in God.’           Selah 3 But you, O Lord, are a shield around me,    my glory, and the one who lifts up my head.  4 I cry aloud to the Lord,    and he answers me from his holy hill.           Selah  5 I lie down and sleep;    I wake again, for the Lord sustains me.  6 I am not afraid of tens of thousands of people    who have set themselves against me [...]

A PERSONAL PRAYER OK, God, I feel like I am running in circles, but staying in the same place. You know about all the phone calls, the ZOOM conferences, the worries about church and congregational health and finances and the future. You know I am praying more than ever, for my own family, for those who are sick, for the healthcare workers on the front line, for families with kids trying to do work and childcare from home, for our older adults stuck at home, for those who live paycheck to paycheck, for those who lead businesses and [...]

Psalm 111 (NRSV) 1 Praise the Lord!

Psalm 4 NRSV 1 Answer me when I call, O God of my right!     You gave me room when I was in distress.     Be gracious to me, and hear my prayer. 2 How long, you people, shall my honor suffer shame?     How long will you love vain words, and seek after lies? Selah 3 But know that the Lord has set apart the faithful for himself;     the Lord hears when I call to him. 4 When you are disturbed, do not sin;     ponder it on your beds, and be silent. Selah 5 Offer right sacrifices,     and put your trust [...]

Psalm 46:  1 God is our refuge and strength,     an ever-present help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way     and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, 3 though its waters roar and foam     and the mountains quake with their surging. 4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,     the holy place where the Most High dwells. 5 God is within her, she will not fall;     God will help her at break of day. 6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;     he lifts his voice, the [...]

Psalm 40 NRSV: To the leader. Of David. A Psalm. 1 I waited patiently for the Lord;     he inclined to me and heard my cry. 2 He drew me up from the desolate pit,     out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock,     making my steps secure. 3 He put a new song in my mouth,     a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear,     and put their trust in the Lord. 4 Happy are those who make     the Lord their trust, who do not turn to the proud,     to those who go [...]

Psalm 27:14 NRSV14 Wait for the Lord;    be strong, and let your heart take courage;    wait for the Lord! Reflection:Waiting is not always a part of our lives since we live in a world with many conveniences. Amid the global viral pandemic of COVID-19, waiting has now become the “new normal”. This is not really a normal wait though. We are waiting for answers from government leaders and health officials, waiting to go back to church, sporting events, schools and even back to our favorite restaurants. Sadly, this waiting is more than just an inconvenience for many families, it [...]
