Daily Scripture:

‘O praise the Lord, all you nations; praise him, all you peoples.

For great is his steadfast love towards us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures for ever. Alleluia.’ (Psalm 117)


Daily Reflection

You have just read a complete Psalm…..this is the shortest Psalm in the Bible; two verses. Yet it packs so much into it. We should praise the Lord: everyone; every nation. His love is “steadfast”; it is unwavering, reliable, constant, trustworthy. His faithfulness “endures for ever”. Not just every day of this life that we all live……but for ever. His steadfast love was there before we were born; all through this life; and will continue for us in the next stage of our life. That is why we should praise God; why we should shout out “praise the Lord”……Alleluia!!

Prayer: Gracious God, we praise you for your faithfulness and pray that every nation may find your blessing in the face of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
