1 Kings 18:1-46;  Acts 11:1-30;  Psalm 135:1-21;  Proverbs 17:12-13

“Praise the Lord!

“Praise the name of the Lord,

give praise, O servants of the Lord,

who stand in the house of the Lord,

in the courts of the house of our God!

Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;

sing to his name, for it is pleasant!

Psalm 135:1-3

Lord God, you dwell in our hearts by faith–what a mystery that is!  But we thank and praise your Holy Name, even when we don’t understand.  Whatever this day brings, O Lord, may praise be on our lips.  Through crowded streets, intense work schedules, preparations for a son’s wedding, a dimly lit hospital room, alone in an apartment, nose in a textbook, may we praise you for you are worthy of our praise.  You alone are God and in your Triune name we pray, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen!
