Psalm for Prayer - October 9, 2017

Psalm 106:1–6, 19-23 (ESV)

1 Praise the Lord! Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!

2 Who can utter the mighty deeds of the Lord, or declare all his praise?

3 Blessed are they who observe justice, who do righteousness at all times!

4 Remember me, O Lord, when you show favor to your people; help me when you save them,

5 that I may look upon the prosperity of your chosen ones, that I may rejoice in the gladness of your nation, that I may glory with your inheritance.

6 Both we and our fathers have sinned; we have committed iniquity; we have done wickedness.

19 They made a calf in Horeb and worshiped a metal image.

20 They exchanged the glory of God for the image of an ox that eats grass.

21 They forgot God, their Savior, who had done great things in Egypt,

22 wondrous works in the land of Ham, and awesome deeds by the Red Sea.

23 Therefore he said he would destroy them— had not Moses, his chosen one, stood in the breach before him, to turn away his wrath from destroying them.
