It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

Daily Prayer, Wednesday, August 28, 2013

Happy are those who fear the Lord,
who greatly delight in his commandments.... (Psalm 112:1)

Invitatory Psalm 100
Shout triumphantly to the LORD , all the earth!
2 Serve the LORD with celebration!
Come before him with shouts of joy!
3 Know that the LORD is God—
he made us; we belong to him.
We are his people,
the sheep of his own pasture.
4 Enter his gates with thanks;
enter his courtyards with praise!
Thank him! Bless his name!
5 Because the LORD is good,
his loyal love lasts forever;
his faithfulness lasts generation after generation.
[Common English Bible]

Psalms 120, 121, 122, 123, 124

Daily Lectionary Reading, Proverbs 25:6-7
6 Don’t exalt yourself in the presence of the king, or stand in the place of important people, 7 because it is better that he say to you, “Come up here,” than to be demoted before a ruler.... [Common English Bible]

Prayer for Today: Lord, we confess that we have too often looked to the approval of people who could offer us some benefit.. We confess that we have too often forgotten to offer benefits to people who really need some help. Direct our attention and our actions to those who need our care. Amen.

Midday Psalm 119:153-160

Psalm 130
