Lent – Friday – April 1

Psalm 107:1-3, 17-22

God’s awesome power is on display in this psalm. The thanksgiving offered by the psalmist reflects God’s love in action. God offers deliverance from danger, distress and destruction. God satisfies the hungry, rescues the prisoners and calms stormy seas, just to name a few examples. Perhaps we have not experienced such calamities, but we all remember when we saw the loving hand of God in our lives. As we remember these events we can, like the psalmist, offer our praise for such an extravagant generosity.
Generous giver of all good gifts, thank you. Amen.
