Psalm 116:1-2, 12-14
I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my supplications.
Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live.
What shall I return to the Lord for all his bounty to me?
I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the Lord,
I will pay my vows to the Lord in the presence of all his people.
Food For Thought:
The line that stands out to me in this passage of Scripture is: “I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my supplications.” Think about a time in your life that you have felt that God listened to your prayers. How did it feel to be listened to? When have you felt that your prayers were left unanswered? Why do you think that sometimes we hear God’s voice and other times we do not?
God of compassion,
you have opened the way for us
and brought us to yourself.
Pour your love into our hearts,
that, overflowing with joy,
we may freely share the blessings of your realm
and faithfully proclaim the good news of Christ. Amen.
