Praying with the Psalms

2007-05-07-psalms.jpg

Psalm 65:5

The experience of salvation leads to a widened conception of God’s power and strength: instead of (as some suppose) narrowing us to a neurotic concern for our own soul, it expands our relation with all that God does everywhere “to the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas.”

Prayer: Almighty God, I want to be in on everything you are doing. I don’t want to be tied to my own worries, or confined to my private joys — I want to participate in praise and adoration in all you do, through out the whole earth, among every people. In Jesus’ name. Amen. –Eugene Peterson
