Scripture for the day is Psalm 148:7-14
Praise the Lord from the earth,
you sea monsters and all deeps,
8 fire and hail, snow and frost,
stormy wind fulfilling his command!
9 Mountains and all hills,
fruit trees and all cedars!
10 Wild animals and all cattle,
creeping things and flying birds!
11 Kings of the earth and all peoples,
princes and all rulers of the earth!
12 Young men and women alike,
old and young together!
13 Let them praise the name of the Lord,
for his name alone is exalted;
his glory is above earth and heaven.
14 He has raised up a horn for his people,
praise for all his faithful,
for the people of Israel who are close to him.
Praise the Lord!
After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, glorify yourself before the world and put forth your power to unite the extremes of humankind in the church of Jesus Christ. Unite the races, the classes, the genders, the tribes – all in praise. You have begun this good work; now bring it to completion in Jesus Christ. Amen.
