Daily Devotion from the Church Health Center – Psalm 107:8, 35-37

Tuesday, October 25, 2011 – Proper 26 & Ordinary 31, Year A

Psalm 107:8, 35-37Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wonderful works to humankind. He turns a desert into pools of water, a parched land into springs of water. And there he lets the hungry live, and they establish a town to live in; they sow fields, and plant vineyards, and get a fruitful yield.

We often speak of the neighborhood in which the Church Health Center is located as being something less than ideal. YET, with God’s leadership and lots of hard work on the part of many faithful people, an oasis of hope and healing has been created for God’s children.

Prayer: Gracious God, you have blessed us greatly. May we continue to do your will in all that we do. AMEN.

Daily Devotion from the Church Health Center – Psalm 107:1

Monday, October 24, 2011 – Proper 26 & Ordinary 31, Year A

The lectionary passages for this week include: Joshua 3:7-17; Psalm 107:1-7, 33-37; 1 Thessalonians 2:9-13; Matthew 23:1-12. Alternate passages include Micah 3:5-12 and Psalm 43.

Psalm 107:1O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever.

This is a great verse with which to begin our week in service to God. It reminds us that God’s love for us is unwavering and unfaltering. God loves us more surely than we love ourselves.

Prayer: Loving God, we thank you for being resolute in your love for us. Work in us this day to help further your Kingdom. AMEN.

Thought & Prayer for Proper 13 & Ordinary 18, 2010 – Psalm 107:4-5, 8-9

Psalm 107:4-5, 8-9Some wandered in desert wastes, finding no way to an inhabited town; hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted within them… Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wonderful works to humankind. For he satisfies the thirsty, and the hungry he fills with good things.

This passage speaks of soul care. It reminds us that while taking care of physical needs, our spiritual needs are also buoyed up. Faith and health are intricately joined.

Prayer: Gracious God, give us this day our daily bread and help our spirits soar. AMEN.

Lent 4 – Psalm 107:1

From Psalm 107:1 – O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever.

In reading through the lectionary scriptures, one of my favorite words describing God is steadfast. In a world punctuated by material things that are “here today and gone tomorrow,” God is unwavering and resolute.

Prayer:

Gracious God, we thank you for your faith in us. May our faith in you deepen each day. AMEN.

Lent 4 – Psalm 107:19-21

From Psalm 107:19-21 – Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress; he sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from destruction. Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wonderful works to humankind.

Are you a Prayer Warrior? Do you have one in your life? I am fortunate to work with a number of people I consider Prayer Warriors. Seeing their faith in God and their trust in the power of prayer has made my faith deepen over the years.

Prayer:

“What a Friend We Have in Jesus” was a song I sang when I was young. I offer the first verse today as our prayer:

What a friend we have in Jesus,
all our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
all because we do not carry
everything to God in prayer. AMEN.
