Thanksgiving Psalms: Psalm 100

Last Sunday, at our Intergenerational Faith Formation Meal, we talked together about thankfulness, and each household received a sort of Thanksgiving devotional book to take home, with a different Psalm of Thanksgiving to read each day from now til Thanksgiving. For those of you who were unable to attend (or who just do better receiving things digitally!) those Psalms will also be sent out via the blog daily until Thanksgiving. Just a chance for you to stop and offer a prayer of thanks from the scriptures each day, developing deeper gratitude in your own lives. Today, as you pray this, imagine all the earth pausing and joining together in one voice to praise and thank God.

Psalm 100: All Lands Summoned to Praise God
A Psalm of thanksgiving.

1 Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.
2     Worship the Lord with gladness;
    come into God’s presence with singing.
3 Know that the Lord is God.
    It is God that made us, and we are God’s;
    we are God’s people, and the sheep of God’s pasture.
4 Enter God’s gates with thanksgiving,
    and God’s courts with praise.
    Give thanks to God, bless God’s name.
5 For the Lord is good;
    God’s steadfast love endures forever,
    and God’s faithfulness to all generations.
