Psalm 67 for today

God, be merciful to us and bless us. Let Your face shine upon us, so Your ways may be known on the earth and Your saving strength among all nations. Let the people praise You, O God. Let all the peoples praise You. O, let the nations be glad and sing for joy for You shall judge us rightly and govern the nations of the earth. Let the people praise You, O God. Let all the peoples praise You. Then the earth will yield abundance, and You, God, our God, shall bless us. Yes, God shall bless us, and all the ends of the earth will hold You in awe. prayer-a-phrase by Mary Harwell Sayler …

A call to prayer

Praise the LORD God! Call upon His Name. Make His acts known among the people. Tell everyone His Name is above all names. Sing of the LORD Who does glorious things, and let this be known in all the earth. Sing and shout for joy, all peoples of God, for great in our midst is the Holy One, the God of Israel. Isaiah 12:4-6 ©2014, Mary Harwell Sayler . This poem prayer-a-phrase of Isaiah 12:4-6 draws from the many translations found on Bible Gateway. …

Whole body clothed in praise

Seeking the prayers of the Bible in the Daily Bible Readings often brings days of interesting stories, proverbs, parables, or prophecies, but not necessarily prayer. Today, however, choices arose in the passage from Isaiah below and the Gospel reading from Luke 1:46-55, also known as The Magnificat. Since “ The song of Mary, Mother of Jesus ” had previously been prayer-a-phrased here, I encourage you to visit that post, too, to see and hear how beautifully Mary embodied this prayer-life of praise from the Prophets. Greatly will I rejoice in the LORD! My whole being shall exult in my God, Who clothes me with garments of salvation. God has robed me in righteousness – the way a bridegroom wears a garland or jewels adorn a bride. The whole earth brings forth beauty like a spring garden with shoots growing from what’s sown. So the Lord God has sown us with righteousness and praise ready to spring into flower and clothe the nations. ©2013, Mary Harwell Sayler , prayer-a-
