Psalm 149

With in-person worship resuming next week, this is a good time to look back on our virtual worship experience as it informs our future worship experiences. Psalm 149 provides a unique perspective on our year so far and the rest that is to come.

As you prepare for this Sunday’s worship

Included here are the scriptures, reflection questions, and prayers that are thematically matched to our Sunday worship outline.

Scriptures: Exod 12:1-14; Ps 149; Matt 18:15-20; Rom 13:8-14

Questions for Reflection:

How do you reconcile a God who would “strike down every firstborn in the land of Egypt, both human beings and animals” (Exod. 12:12) with a God who would die for the sins of the entire world?

Morning Prayer:

O God of this and every morning, as I begin this day, call my name; as I step into this day, guide my feet; as I live this day, care for those I love; as I learn this day, teach me your ways. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Evening Prayer:

God of stars and planets, the setting sun ends this day for us as it rises on a new day for others.  For us and for them, be light in every darkness. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
