Our rock and our redeemer

I came across this scripture during my personal devotion time this week and it really struck me and stood out.  I have been meaning to add some more on the site in terms of spiritually and scripture and I thought this would be a great place to start!

Psalms 19:14 in the Revised Standard Version says, “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.”

As many of you know, Pastor Karen uses this scripture as her opening prayer before she preaches her sermon on Sunday mornings.  I have always thought this was a very poetic and powerful sentiment during her prayer but I didn’t realize until this week this was actually a direct quote from Psalms.  It was just a poignant moment for me and I wanted to share.

What a powerful prayer that we all can share this week as a community of faith!  Let the words of our collective mouths and the meditations of our hearts be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, our rock and our redeemer.  Amen.  🙂
