Psalm for Prayer - June 4, 2018

Psalm 146(ESV)

1 Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, O my soul! 

2 I will praise the Lordas long as I live; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being. 

3 Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation. 

4 When his breath departs, he returns to the earth; on that very day his plans perish. 

5 Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lordhis God, 

6 who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, who keeps faith forever; 

7 who executes justice for the oppressed, who gives food to the hungry. The Lordsets the prisoners free; 

8 the Lordopens the eyes of the blind. The Lordlifts up those who are bowed down; the Lord loves the righteous. 

9 The Lordwatches over the sojourners; he upholds the widow and the fatherless, but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin. 

10 The Lordwill reign forever, your God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise the Lord!
