We are welcoming the latest relaxation enabling us to restart physical services, albeit in a socially distanced fashion.
A little word
Blessed be the Lord, for he has heard the voice of my prayer. The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart has trusted in him and I am helped; Therefore my heart dances for joy and in my song will I praise him. Psalm 28. 7-9
This came from one of the Psalms for today. It starts in the regular cry out to God because of oppression way that is so common in the Psalms. I have noticed that so often both the OT and the NT (especially Paul) give clues that real thankfulness, praise, and wonder seem to accompany hardship. In fact, there are warnings not to forget God when all is well, presumably because that would be our go to position. So, amidst the continuing trials of Covid and general weariness with life that so many are feeling may you find your heart dancing when you recognise the ever-present God as your source of strength.
Things to pray for
- Give thanks for God’s ever-present constancy in a turbulent world.
- for Northern Ireland, that the gains of the last 20 yrs. would not be lost.
- for the dialogue needed to bring nations together so that the next climate talks will be meaningful and effective.
