daily reading 28.5 (Psalm 118:10-19)

5-days-a-week through the Psalms in 2018

First pray:

Hosanna to th’ anointed King, to David’s holy Son!
Help us, O Lord; descend and bring salvation from the throne.

Bles-sed is Jesus Christ, who came with messages of grace,
Who came in God the Father’s name to save our sinful race.

Hosanna in the highest strains The church on earth shall raise;
The highest heavens, in which you reign, Shall give you nobler praise. Amen.

Psalm 118:10-19

    • All the nations surrounded me; in the name of the LORD I destroyed them. 11 They surrounded me, yes, they surrounded me; in the name of the LORD I destroyed them.
      12 They surrounded me like bees; they were extinguished like a fire among thorns; in the name of the LORD I destroyed them. 13 They pushed me hard to make me fall, but the LORD helped me.
    • 14 The LORD is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.
    • 15 There are shouts of joy and victory in the tents of the righteous: “The LORD‘s right hand performs valiantly! 16 The LORD‘s right hand is raised. The LORD‘s right hand performs valiantly!”
    • 17 I will not die, but I will live and proclaim what the LORD has done. 18 The LORD disciplined me severely but did not give me over to death.
    • 19 Open the gates of righteousness for me; I will enter through them and give thanks to the LORD.

For yourself pray:

  • That you erupt in joy and shouts of victory at Jesus’ victory over sin, Satan and death

Other people to pray for:

  • For those you know whom God is disciplining severely

    • 5 I called to the LORD in distress; the LORD answered me and put me in a spacious place. 6 The LORD is for me; I will not be afraid. What can a mere mortal do to me? 7 The LORD is my helper, Therefore, I will look in triumph on those who hate me.

daily reading 28.3 (Psalm 107:33-43)

5-days-a-week through the Psalms in 2018

First pray to God:

We thank you, God above, and make your glories known,
Our Father whose redeeming love still gathers in his own.

In deserts of despair, when faint and far astray,
You, Lord, yourself will meet us there and be yourself the Way. Amen.

Psalm 107:33-43

    • He turns rivers into desert, springs into thirsty ground, 34 and fruitful land into salty wasteland, because of the wickedness of its inhabitants. 35 He turns a desert into a pool, dry land into springs. 36 He causes the hungry to settle there, and they establish a city where they can live. 37 They sow fields and plant vineyards that yield a fruitful harvest. 38 He blesses them, and they multiply greatly; he does not let their livestock decrease.
    • 39 When they are diminished and are humbled by cruel oppression and sorrow, 40 he pours contempt on nobles and makes them wander in a trackless wasteland. 41 But he lifts the needy out of their suffering and makes their families multiply like flocks. 42 The upright see it and rejoice, and all injustice shuts its mouth.
    • 43 Let whoever is wise pay attention to these things and consider the LORD ‘s acts of faithful love.

For yourself pray:

  • That you rejoice at all the Lord does

Other people to pray for:

  • For needy people near you

We thank you, God above, and make your glories known,
Our Father whose redeeming love still gathers in his own.

In deserts of despair, when faint and far astray,
You, Lord, yourself will meet us there and be yourself the Way. Amen.

Psalm 107:23-32

      • Some went out on the sea in ships; they were merchants on the mighty waters. 24 They saw the works of the LORD, his wonderful deeds in the deep. 25 For he spoke and stirred up a tempest that lifted high the waves. 26 They mounted up to the heavens and went down to the depths; in their peril their courage melted away. 27 They reeled and staggered like drunkards; they were at their wits’ end.
      • 28 Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress. 29 He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. 30 They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven.
      • 31 Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind. 32 Let them exalt him in the assembly of the people and praise him in the council of the elders.
