Praying through Advent – Seventh Day of Advent – Psalm 24:4

Psalm 24:4 – Make me know your ways, O LORD; teach me your paths.

You have started a journey this week. Whether your walk has been physical, metaphorical or a mixture of both, you have been engaged in a conversation with God to help draw you closer to God’s plan for you. Rejoice today in your progress, even if it seems insignificant.

God of wonder, you can make the faith of a mustard seed do amazing things. Continue walking beside me as I continue in my journey toward you. AMEN.

Picture for All Saints Day – Psalm 24:1

The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it, the world, and those who live in it.

Proper 10/Ordinary 15 – Psalm 24:7-8, 10

From Psalm 24:7-8, 10 – Lift up your heads, O gates! And be lifted up, O ancient doors! That the king of glory may come in. Who is the King of glory? The LORD, strong and mighty, the LORD, mighty in battle. Who is the King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory.

The verses in today’s scripture comprise a wonderful choir piece with great tenor and bass lines. I loved singing this song as a teenager. Until I started writing these thoughts, I never realized how important those few years of singing in the choir were to my faith journey. Consider an early memory in your faith journey and thank God for that experience today.


Steadfast God, thank you for choirs, Sunday School teachers, Vacation Bible School volunteers, for the traditions and sacraments that have played a role in our journeys. AMEN.

Proper 10/Ordinary 15 – Psalm 24:1-2

From Psalm 24:1-2 – The earth is the Lord’s and the all that is in it, the world, and those who live in it; for he has founded it on the seas, and established it on the rivers.

Are we individuals or parts of a community? Are we soloists or part of a choir? Are we free agents or team players? We are the Lord’s, and therefore we can’t escape the communal nature of our relationship to one another.


Almighty God, bless our efforts this and every day to build the kind of community, the kind of kingdom, you would have. AMEN.
