Today’s reading is Psalm 98. A psalm is a prayer that is also a song. As we listen, can I open my heart to what the Holy Spirit might want me to hear? Are there any words or phrases that specially stand out to me today?
Sing a new song to the LORD.
He has done wonderful things.
By the power of his right hand and holy arm
he has saved his people.
The LORD has made known his power to save.
He has shown the nations that he does what is right.
He has shown his faithful love
to the people of Israel.
People from one end of the earth to the other
have seen that our God has saved us.
Shout for joy to the LORD, everyone on earth.
Burst into joyful songs and make music.
Make music to the LORD with the harp.
Sing and make music with the harp.
Blow the trumpets. Give a blast on the ram’s horn.
Shout for joy to the LORD. He is the King.
Let the ocean and everything in it roar.
Let the world and all who live in it shout.
Let the rivers clap their hands.
Let the mountains sing together with joy.
Let them sing to the LORD,
because he is coming to judge the earth.
He will judge the nations of the world
in keeping with what is right and fair.
God, we wait in hope for you. You help us. You are like a shield that keeps us safe. Give us hearts that are joyful because of you; teach us to trust you, because you are holy and good. Lord, let your faithful love be with us. We put our hope in you. Bring us today into the joy of your life and your presence. In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
