Proper 8/Ordinary 13 – Lamentations 3:22-23

This is another week where the lectionary offers numerous selections. These passages include: 2 Samuel 1:1, 1:17-27; Psalm 130; 2 Corinthians 8:7-15 and Mark 5:21-43. Alternate selections include: Wisdom of Solomon 1:13-15, 2:23-24; Lamentations 3:23-33 and Psalm 30.

From Lamentations 3:22-23 – The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

One of joys of following the lectionary is finding scriptures that you never knew were the basis for great hymns. For example, the refrain to the wonderful hymn “Great is Thy Faithfulness:”

Great is thy faithfulness!
Great is thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed thy hand hath provided;
Great is thy faithfulness,
Lord, unto me!

Prayer:

From Lamentations 3:24 – “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” AMEN.

Proper 8/Ordinary 13 – Mark 5:42

“And immediately the girl got up and began to walk about (she was about twelve years of age)…”
