Psalm for Prayer - April 2, 2018

Psalm 118:1–2, 14-24 (ESV)

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

2 Let Israel say, “His steadfast love endures forever.”

14 The Lordis my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. 

15 Glad songs of salvation are in the tents of the righteous: “The right hand of the Lorddoes valiantly, 

16 the right hand of the Lordexalts, the right hand of the Lorddoes valiantly!” 

17 I shall not die, but I shall live, and recount the deeds of the Lord. 

18 The Lordhas disciplined me severely, but he has not given me over to death. 

19 Open to me the gates of righteousness, that I may enter through them and give thanks to the Lord. 

20 This is the gate of the Lord; the righteous shall enter through it. 

21 I thank you that you have answered me and have become my salvation. 

22 The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. 

23 This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes. 

24 This is the day that the Lordhas made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
