PAUL SANNER
Dear God, thank you for today and every day. 
Please help us to keep our hearts, minds and hands turned to your presence,
listening to your call and working for your Kingdom.   
Scripture
Psalm 145
David’s Praise

I lift you high in praise, my God, O my King!
    and I’ll bless your name into eternity.
I’ll bless you every day, and keep it up from now to eternity.
God is magnificent; he can never be praised enough.  
    There are no boundaries to his greatness.
Generation after generation stands in awe of your work;
    each one tells stories of your mighty acts.
Your beauty and splendor have everyone talking;
    I compose songs on your wonders.
Your marvelous doings are headline news;
    I could write a book full of the details of your greatness.
The fame of your goodness spreads across the country; 
    your righteousness is on everyone’s lips.
God is all mercy and grace— not quick to anger, is rich in love.
God is good to one and all; everything he does is suffused with grace.
Creation and creatures applaud you, God; your holy people bless you.
They talk about the glories of your rule, they exclaim over your splendor,
Letting the world know of your power for good, the lavish splendor of your kingdom.
Your kingdom is a kingdom eternal; you never get voted out of office.
God always does what he says, and is gracious in everything he does.
God gives a hand to those down on their luck, gives a fresh start to those ready to quit.
All eyes are on you, expectant; you give them their meals on time.
Generous to a fault, you lavish your favor on all creatures.
Everything God does is right— the trademark on all his works is love.
God’s there, listening for all who pray, for all who pray and mean it.
He does what’s best for those who fear him— hears them call out, and saves them.
God sticks by all who love him, but it’s all over for those who don’t.
My mouth is filled with God’s praise.
    Let everything living bless him,
    bless his holy name from now to eternity!

Reflection
Closing Prayer
Dear God, please help us to remember that we share your creation -- we share with each other, and with all life, flora and fauna alike.  Please help us to remember our neighbors, and when one is in need, please help us to accompany them on their journey, and give comfort and healing as well as we are able.
