“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 136:1-3

TODAY’S WORD…

O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good,

for His steadfast love endures for ever.

O give thanks to the God of gods,

for His steadfast love endures for ever.

O give thanks to the Lord of lords,

for His steadfast love endures for ever.

– Psalm 136:1-3

 

TEACHING…by ST. AUGUSTINE…

“Try to praise God with all your being; you should praise the Lord not only with your tongue and with your words, but also with your spirit, with your life and your deeds.

We praise him here and now when we gather in the church, and when we go home again, it may seem that our praise comes to an end, but if we do not fail to live well and if we do good works, we will never cease to give Him praise. You cease to praise God when you abandon the path of righteousness and do what is not pleasing to Him.

If you never swerve from the right path, though your tongue fall silent, your actions will speak for you; God listens closely to your heart. For as our ears hear the sound of our own voices, so God can hear our thoughts.”

 

PRAYER…

Lord, my soul knows You,

and my spirit knows you,

– they yearn for You;

they exult at the sound of Your name;

they reach out for You, O Lord.

 

Lord, the world seeks to suppress my soul and my spirit

but with Your grace I shall give them free rein,

for them to praise and thank You and give You glory.

 

You are worthy, Lord, and You are great!

Your steadfast love endures forever.

My God, there is no one else like You!

 

Amen.
