Psalm 119

 The theme of the glory of Scripture is diligently explored in this Psalm, but always in connection with God Himself. ...

Since this is a Psalm glorifying God and His Word, it refers to Scripture over and over again. The psalm is remarkable for how often it refers to God’s written revelation, His word. It is referred to in almost every verse.

Lord, we pray for:

  • all affected by the bushfires and floods, for restoration of their lives and property
  • all affected by the coronavirus, and for global containment and elimination of the virus

Thank you Lord:

  • for the cooler weather and the welcome rain, bringing easing of bushfire conditions
