Psalm for Prayer - August 6, 2018

Psalm 50:1–8, 22-23 (ESV)

1 The Mighty One, God the Lord, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting. 

2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines forth. 

3 Our God comes; he does not keep silence; before him is a devouring fire, around him a mighty tempest. 

4 He calls to the heavens above and to the earth, that he may judge his people: 

5 “Gather to me my faithful ones, who made a covenant with me by sacrifice!” 

6 The heavens declare his righteousness, for God himself is judge! Selah

7 “Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, I will testify against you. I am God, your God. 

8 Not for your sacrifices do I rebuke you; your burnt offerings are continually before me.

22 “Mark this, then, you who forget God, lest I tear you apart, and there be none to deliver! 

23 The one who offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies me; to one who orders his way rightly I will show the salvation of God!”
