Psalm for Prayer - August 22, 2016

Psalm 81:1, 10-16 (ESV)

1Sing aloud to God our strength; shout for joy to the God of Jacob!

10I am the Lord your God, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt. Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.

11“But my people did not listen to my voice; Israel would not submit to me.

12So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts, to follow their own counsels.

13Oh, that my people would listen to me, that Israel would walk in my ways!

14I would soon subdue their enemies and turn my hand against their foes.

15Those who hate the Lord would cringe toward him, and their fate would last forever.

16But he would feed you with the finest of the wheat, and with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”
