Day Five: Proclamation - Harvest & Praise

Friday, May 7th, 2010

Psalm 67 (TNIV)

1 May God be gracious to us and bless us
and make his face shine on us—
2 so that your ways may be known on earth,
your salvation among all nations.
3 May the peoples praise you, God;
may all the peoples praise you.
4 May the nations be glad and sing for joy,
for you rule the peoples with equity
and guide the nations of the earth.
5 May the peoples praise you, God;
may all the peoples praise you.
6 The land yields its harvest;
God, our God, blesses us.
7 May God bless us still,
so that all the ends of the earth will fear him.

Reflection:

Before we knew Christ, we thought that the fruit of our labor came from our hard work. It didn’t have much to do with God. But now we know that it has everything to do with God. If we think about it, even our healthy bodies are from God. Our bodies function because God causes it to do so. The nations, the earth, the universe function because God blesses us. Whether people acknowledge or not, we are so dependent upon God blessing us with life.

Responding to the Transmitted Message:

Let’s pray this prayer over our land. Let’s first praise God who He is and what He is doing all over the world: He is God of justice and compassion. He rules the people on the earth with justice and guides the nations. Acknowledging how our life depends on God, let’s pray that God will be gracious to us, bless us, and make His face shine on us. For we know that then His way will be known on the earth and His salvation will be known among all nations. Let’s pray that people everywhere will know Him and acknowledge Him as their Savior and Lord.
