My apologies for missing last week, but I was off on vacation.
This week we look at Psalm 105, in particular where we are called to remember the covenant that God has made with God’s people. It is a covenant of love and one that we are called to live into. But even in those times when we fail to live in that covenant God loves us anyway, and ever calls to us, whispering the way to the path that leads to the kingdom.
Let us reflect on these words and pray.
Remember the wonderful works he has done, his miracles, and the judgements he has uttered, O offspring of his servant Abraham, children of Jacob, his chosen ones.
He is the Lord our God; his judgements are in all the earth. He is mindful of his covenant for ever, of the word that he commanded, for a thousand generations, the covenant that he made with Abraham, his sworn promise to Isaac, which he confirmed to Jacob as a statute, to Israel as an everlasting covenant,
You, O God, are the giver of countless blessings. Each day, each moment, each breath is given freely, and often taken for granted. May we cherish the gift of this life and the promise of eternal life. Remind us that in this covenant relationship, we are to give of ourselves freely to you, and to your will. Guide our feet, act through our hands, and empower us to bring the good news of your covenant to all.
You are the Living God, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, and as you promised to walk with them so too you have promised to walk with us. Remind us of this, that we are never alone.
This prayer we offer in the name of Christ, the Word of your promise among us. AMEN
