Opening Prayer: Almighty God, help me to worship You in light of the grace You have shown me through Your son, in whose name I pray, Amen.
Read: Jeremiah 23:1-6
Reflect: Who are the shepherds who are destroying and scattering the Lord’s sheep? Why will the coming leader be called “The Lord our righteousness? What hope is there in this promise from God?
Prayer: for the church, for others, and for myself
Hymn: “Praise to the Lord, the Almighty”
Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation!
O my soul, praise Him, for He is thy health and salvation!
All ye who hear,
Now to His temple draw near;
Join me in glad adoration!
Praise to the Lord, who o’er all things so wondrously reigneth,
Shelters thee under His wings, yea, so gently sustaineth!
Hast thou not seen
How thy desires all have been
Granted in what He ordaineth?
Praise to the Lord, who doth prosper thy work and defend thee;
Surely His goodness and mercy here daily attend thee.
What the almighty can do
If with His love He befriend thee.
Praise to the Lord! O let all that is in me adore Him!
All that hath life and breath, come now with praises before Him!
Let the “amen”
Sound from His people again;
Gladly forever adore Him!
Closing Prayer: Go with me Lord, so I may continue to praise You all day. Amen.
