Collect of the Day

Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light, now in the time of this mortal life in which your Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the living and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Priest - Source of eternal light, as we begin this new year we ask you to bless this Advent wreath and the candles that mark the weeks until the birth of Christ.

Congregation - O come, O come, Emmanuel

Priest - as we light this first candle, gather us into the circle of your love and nurture in us joyful hope and expectations.

Congregation - Jesus, help us to be alert at all times, that out hearts are not weighed down with distractions as we wait for your return with great glory and love. Amen.

Psalm 118 (Good News Translation)
God’s Faithful Word of Praise and Thanksgiving

Introduction

Psalm 118: It is thought that this psalm was adapted from a prayer of thanksgiving by an individual, perhaps a king, who was delivered by God from danger. Therefore, this psalm is sometimes entitled “A Song of Victory.” The psalm concludes with a description of a liturgical procession and an affirmation of God’s eternal love.

Today's Scripture: Psalm 118:28

You are my God, and I give you thanks; I will proclaim your greatness.

Today's Reading

A Prayer of Thanks for Victory

1 Give thanks to the Lord, because he is good,

and his love is eternal.

2Let the people of Israel say,

“His love is eternal.”

3Let the priests of God say,

“His love is eternal.”

4Let all who worship him say,

“His love is eternal.”

5In my distress I called to the Lord;

he answered me and set me free.

6 The Lord is with me, I will not be afraid;

what can anyone do to me?

7It is the Lord who helps me,

and I will see my enemies defeated.

8It is better to trust in the Lord

than to depend on people.

9It is better to trust in the Lord

than to depend on human leaders.

10Many enemies were around me;

but I destroyed them by the power of the Lord!

11They were around me on every side;

but I destroyed them by the power of the Lord!

12They swarmed around me like bees,

but they burned out as quickly as a brush fire;

by the power of the Lord I destroyed them.

13I was fiercely attacked and was being defeated,

but the Lord helped me.

14 The Lord makes me powerful and strong;

he has saved me.

15Listen to the glad shouts of victory in the tents of God's people:

“The Lord's mighty power has done it!

16His power has brought us victory—

his mighty power in battle!”

17I will not die; instead, I will live

and proclaim what the Lord has done.

18He has punished me severely,

but he has not let me die.

19Open to me the gates of the Temple;

I will go in and give thanks to the Lord!

20This is the gate of the Lord;

only the righteous can come in.

21I praise you, Lord, because you heard me,

because you have given me victory.

22 The stone which the builders rejected as worthless

turned out to be the most important of all.

23This was done by the Lord;

what a wonderful sight it is!

24This is the day of the Lord's victory;

let us be happy, let us celebrate!

25 Save us, Lord, save us!

Give us success, O Lord!

26 May God bless the one who comes in the name of the Lord!

From the Temple of the Lord we bless you.

27The Lord is God; he has been good to us.

With branches in your hands, start the festival

and march around the altar.

28You are my God, and I give you thanks;

I will proclaim your greatness.

29Give thanks to the Lord, because he is good,

and his love is eternal.

Reflect

The opening and closing verses of this psalm are identical and affirm God’s goodness and enduring love. For what is the psalm writer thankful? What verses speak of God’s deliverance? The psalm also includes a reference to a procession (verses 19-27). Have you ever participated in any type of religious procession? If so, what was the occasion and where did it take place?

Pray

Praise to you, Lord God! You are always with me and I need not fear. You are mighty and victorious. I give thanks to you because you are good and your love is eternal. You are my God and I will proclaim your greatness. Amen.

Psalm 116 (Good News Translation)God’s Faithful Word of Praise and Thanksgiving

Introduction

Psalm 116: The psalm writer thanks and praises God for being delivered from danger and death and vows to offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving.

Today's Scripture: Psalm 116:5

The LORD is merciful and good; our God is compassionate.

Today's Reading

Someone Saved from Death Praises God

1I love the Lord, because he hears me;

he listens to my prayers.

2He listens to me

every time I call to him.

3The danger of death was all around me;

the horrors of the grave closed in on me;

I was filled with fear and anxiety.

4Then I called to the Lord,

“I beg you, Lord, save me!”

5The Lord is merciful and good;

our God is compassionate.

6The Lord protects the helpless;

when I was in danger, he saved me.

7Be confident, my heart,

because the Lord has been good to me.

8The Lord saved me from death;

he stopped my tears

and kept me from defeat.

9And so I walk in the presence of the Lord

in the world of the living.

10 I kept on believing, even when I said,

“I am completely crushed,”

11even when I was afraid and said,

“No one can be trusted.”

12What can I offer the Lord

for all his goodness to me?

13I will bring a wine offering to the Lord,

to thank him for saving me.

14In the assembly of all his people

I will give him what I have promised.

15How painful it is to the Lord

when one of his people dies!

16I am your servant, Lord;

I serve you just as my mother did.

You have saved me from death.

17I will give you a sacrifice of thanksgiving

and offer my prayer to you.

18-19In the assembly of all your people,

in the sanctuary of your Temple in Jerusalem,

I will give you what I have promised.

Praise the Lord!

Reflect

Sacrifices of thanksgiving were offered to God to express thanks for God’s deliverance or help and in recognition that God is the source of blessings and provider of good things. The worshiper would bring an animal or grain as an offering, sometimes in conjunction with a specific vow. How does the psalm writer express thanks to God? What does the psalm writer promise? Have you made promises to God?

Pray

Compassionate and merciful God, you hear me when I call out to you and you listen to my prayers. When I walk in your presence, I know that I am in your care. Thank you for your steadfast goodness and love. Amen.

Psalm 107 (Good News Translation)God’s Faithful Word of Praise and Thanksgiving

Introduction

Psalm 107: Today’s psalm speaks of God’s unfailing love. It describes the Israelites’ time in the desert, God’s liberating the people from slavery in Egypt and from exile in Babylon, God’s healing the sick and those close to death, and God’s rescuing those in distress. The psalm concludes with an affirmation of the LORD’s constant love.

Today's Scripture: Psalm 107:8a

Thank the LORD for his constant love.

Today's Reading

BOOK FIVE (Psalms 107–150) In Praise of God's Goodness

1 “Give thanks to the Lord, because he is good;

his love is eternal!”

2Repeat these words in praise to the Lord,

all you whom he has saved.

He has rescued you from your enemies

3and has brought you back from foreign countries,

from east and west, from north and south.

4Some wandered in the trackless desert

and could not find their way to a city to live in.

5They were hungry and thirsty

and had given up all hope.

6Then in their trouble they called to the Lord,

and he saved them from their distress.

7He led them by a straight road

to a city where they could live.

8They must thank the Lord for his constant love,

for the wonderful things he did for them.

9He satisfies those who are thirsty

and fills the hungry with good things.

10Some were living in gloom and darkness,

prisoners suffering in chains,

11because they had rebelled against the commands of Almighty God

and had rejected his instructions.

12They were worn out from hard work;

they would fall down, and no one would help.

13Then in their trouble they called to the Lord,

and he saved them from their distress.

14He brought them out of their gloom and darkness

and broke their chains in pieces.

15They must thank the Lord for his constant love,

for the wonderful things he did for them.

16He breaks down doors of bronze

and smashes iron bars.

17Some were fools, suffering because of their sins

and because of their evil;

18they couldn't stand the sight of food

and were close to death.

19Then in their trouble they called to the Lord,

and he saved them from their distress.

20He healed them with his command

and saved them from the grave.

21They must thank the Lord for his constant love,

for the wonderful things he did for them.

22They must thank him with sacrifices,

and with songs of joy must tell all that he has done.

23Some sailed over the ocean in ships,

earning their living on the seas.

24They saw what the Lord can do,

his wonderful acts on the seas.

25He commanded, and a mighty wind began to blow

and stirred up the waves.

26The ships were lifted high in the air

and plunged down into the depths.

In such danger the sailors lost their courage;

27they stumbled and staggered like drunks—

all their skill was useless.

28Then in their trouble they called to the Lord,

and he saved them from their distress.

29He calmed the raging storm,

and the waves became quiet.

30They were glad because of the calm,

and he brought them safe to the port they wanted.

31They must thank the Lord for his constant love,

for the wonderful things he did for them.

32They must proclaim his greatness in the assembly of the people

and praise him before the council of the leaders.

33The Lord made rivers dry up completely

and stopped springs from flowing.

34 He made rich soil become a salty wasteland

because of the wickedness of those who lived there.

35He changed deserts into pools of water

and dry land into flowing springs.

36He let hungry people settle there,

and they built a city to live in.

37They sowed the fields and planted grapevines

and reaped an abundant harvest.

38He blessed his people, and they had many children;

he kept their herds of cattle from decreasing.

39When God's people were defeated and humiliated

by cruel oppression and suffering,

40he showed contempt for their oppressors

and made them wander in trackless deserts.

41But he rescued the needy from their misery

and made their families increase like flocks.

42The righteous see this and are glad,

but all the wicked are put to silence.

43May those who are wise think about these things;

may they consider the Lord's constant love.

Reflect

This psalm recounts many of God’s acts of love and grace. How can telling stories about God’s love and grace enhance your praise and strengthen your faith? How can hearing other people’s stories deepen your understanding of God? Note verses 8, 15, 21, 31. What is the significance of this verse being repeated four times throughout the psalm?

Pray

God, I give thanks to you because your love is eternal! You care for your people in every time and place, being present with each one of us, whatever situations we face. May the stories of your constant love deepen my faith and the faith of others. Amen.
