Praise the Lord! Praise, O servants of the Lord; praise the name of the Lord.
Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time on and forevermore.
From the rising of the sun to its setting the name of the Lord is to be praised.
The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens.
Food For Thought:
The line that stands out to me in this passage of Scripture is “Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time on and forevermore.” Think about the word blessing and its cognates blessed, blessedness. How would you define this word? #Blessed has become a part of everyday parlance these days. Do you think we acknowledge our blessings properly? Do you think we give thanks to God for the many blessings in our lives? How can we be blessings to others?
you call us to embrace
both you and the children of this world
with unconditional love.
Give us grace to discern
what your love demands of us,
that, being faithful in things both great and small,
we may serve you with an undivided heart. Amen.
