Psalm 91:1-2, 9-16
Question for reflection:
How often do you find yourself surprised by the insights of the Psalms? Are they a part of your regular prayers?
Prayer for the day:
O Lord, though we are creatures of habit, we are fanatics for the new. We look for new experiences as a sign of life, all along forgetting that our faith and practices reach back through generations. Forgive us when we think that ancient words could not possibly speak to our hearts today. Walk with us through the Psalms that we might hear in their words the truth of our faith in you.
