Psalm 65:1-2,5-8 (NIVUK)
1 Praise awaits you, our God, in Zion;
to you our vows will be fulfilled.
2 You who answer prayer,
to you all people will come…
5 You answer us with awesome and righteous deeds,
God our Saviour,
the hope of all the ends of the earth
and of the farthest seas,
6 who formed the mountains by your power,
having armed yourself with strength,
7 who stilled the roaring of the seas,
the roaring of their waves,
and the turmoil of the nations.
8 The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders;
where morning dawns, where evening fades,
you call forth songs of joy.
Where can we find joy? One way is to reflect on ways in which God has answered our prayers, bringing his great creative power to play. In fact, not only can we find joy in seeing how he answers them, but the whole of creation joins in too!
How has God answered your prayers? Join creation in giving thanks.
