As it says in Psalm 107, “Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.”
[And we do see your love every day, Lord, in the myriad of provisions and protections you pour out upon us. You made us able to see, hear, speak, walk, work and write. You give us food, shelter, health, community and sleep. You provide protection, guidance, warning and help–these among many other wonderful gifts.]
“Let the redeemed of the LORD say this–those he redeemed from the hand of the foe,”
[You, Lord Jesus, have marvelously redeemed and rescued us from the hand of Satan, from the hand of sin, from the hands of evil men. You are our Savior, Shepherd and Sustainer. Praise be to you forever and ever for your gracious, good and great salvation.]
“those he gathered from the lands, from east and west, from north and south.”
[Thank you, Lord, that your Spirit works in every land in every people, opening their eyes, giving them the desire for truth, bringing them your Word so they, too, can enter you Kingdom, become your children, and spend eternity with you. You are the true, loving God, gracious to all, forgiving to all those who come to your call.
Help us to bask in the wonder of your love, of your word, of your wisdom. Help us to love you as you love us.]
