Zechariah 9:1-17;  Revelation 17:1-18;  Psalm 145:1-21;  Proverbs 30:32

“The Lord is faithful to all his promises

and loving toward all he has made.

The Lord upholds all those who fall

and lifts up all who are bowed down.

The eyes of all look to you,

and you give them their food at the proper time.

You open your hand

and satisfy the desires of every living thing.

The Lord is righteous in all his ways

and loving toward all he has made.

The Lord is near to all who call on him,

to all who call on him in truth.

He fulfills the desires of those who fear him;

he hears their cry and saves them.

The Lord watches over all who love him,

but the wicked he will destroy.

My mouth will speak in praise of the Lord.

Let every creature praise his holy name

for ever and ever.”

Psalm 145:13-21

Faithful Lord God, we thank and praise you for all your good gifts to us.  As we put away the ribbons and bows of this Christmas, may we not put away the joy in our hearts as we remember you, the Gifter of our Salvation.  Thank you that your promises to us will carry us through the New Year as well–your promises to provide for us, protect us, be near us, to hear us when we call upon your name.  May we lives our lives in humble gratitude and eager expectation of our Savior’s return for it is in Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
