Psalm 98 The Message

  Sing to God a brand-new song. He’s made a world of wonders!
  He rolled up his sleeves,
  He set things right.

  God made history with salvation,
  He showed the world what he could do.

  He remembered to love us, a bonus
  To his dear family, Israel-indefatigable love.

  The whole earth comes to attention.
  Look-God’s work of salvation!

  Shout your praises to God, everybody!
  Let loose and sing! Strike up the band!

  Round up an orchestra to play for God,
  Add on a hundred-voice choir.

  Feature trumpets and big trombones,
  Fill the air with praises to King God.

  Let the sea and its fish give a round of applause,
  With everything living on earth joining in.

  Let ocean breakers call out, “Encore!”
  And mountains harmonize the finale-

  A tribute to God when he comes,
  When he comes to set the earth right.

  He’ll straighten out the whole world,
  He’ll put the world right, and everyone in it.


Midday Prayer

By your word, O God, your creation sprang forth,
and we were given the breath of life.
By your word, eternal God,
death is overcome,
Christ is raised from the tomb,
and we are given a new life in the power of your Spirit.

May we boldly proclaim this good news,
by the words of our mouths
and the deeds of our lives,
rejoicing always in your powerful presence;
through Jesus Christ our risen Lord.


2 Corinthians 4:18 NIV

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
