“The Psalms: Praying With Our Lives in the Good Times” by Rev. Alycia Erickson
Scripture Reading: Psalm 40:1-6, 10 from The Inclusive Bible
Unyielding, I called to you, Yahweh,now at last you have stooped to me and answered my cry for help.You have pulled me out of the Pit of Destruction, out of its mud and quicksand; you set my feet on a rock and made my steps firm. You put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to you. Many will look on in wonder and so will put their trust in you. Happiness comes to those who put their trust in Yahweh, instead of in human egos or people blind to the truth! How many wonders you’ve worked for us, Yahweh, my God! How many plans you’ve made for us; you have no equal! I want to recount them again and again, but their number is too great. You don’t desire sacrifice or oblation, instead you made my ears receptive to you; you asked no burnt offering or sacrifice for sins from me….I have never kept your generosity to myself, but announced your faithfulness and saving action; I have made no secret of your love and faithfulness in the Great Assembly.
