Thanksgiving Psalms: Psalm 95

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. Now that we're a week into these prayers, what are you noticing about them? What thoughts or prayers are they bringing up in you?

Psalm 95: A Call to Worship and Obedience

1 O come, let us sing to the Lord;
    let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
2 Let us come into God’s presence with thanksgiving;
    let us make a joyful noise to God with songs of praise!
3 For the Lord is a great God,
    and a great King above all gods.
4 In God’s hand are the depths of the earth;
    the heights of the mountains are God’s also.
5 The sea is God’s, for God made it,
    and the dry land, which God’s hands have formed.
6 O come, let us worship and bow down,
    let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!
7 For God is our God,
    and we are the people of God’s pasture,
    and the sheep of God’s hand.

O that today you would listen to God’s voice!
