The Lord’s Day

Third Sunday of Lent

March 8

Scripture: Psalm 147
How good it is to sing praises to our God; for our God is gracious, and a song of praise is fitting.

Psalm 147 reads like a thankfulness journal. The psalmist alternates between recounting the manifold ways God cares for humans and praising God for all the ways God sustains creation. Consider starting a thankfulness journal, recording what you’re thankful for.

Questions for reflection
    1. What are you thankful for today about the way God sustains creation and human life? What about the way God sustains your life and those you love?
    2. After a week of thankfulness prayers, spend some time reflecting on the role you would like thankfulness to play in your life.

Creator and Redeemer God, give us eyes to see your hand at work in the world and to praise and thank you for all you do.
