Psalm 108: 1-6
I am determined, O God! I will sing and praise you with my whole heart.
Awake, O stringed instrument and harp! I will wake up at dawn!
I will give you thanks before the nations, O Lord! I will sing praises to you before foreigners!
For your loyal love extends beyond the sky, and your faithfulness reaches the clouds.
Rise up above the sky, O God! May your splendor cover the whole earth!
Deliver by your power and answer me, so that the ones you love may be safe.
Lord, we worship you and we praise you with all our hearts. We praise you early in the morning and mid-day and night fall and late in the evening. We give you thanks for your loyal love and faithfulness. And we thank You Lord for the ministry of Father Shaw and Mother Julie and Lydia Mudge in Peru. Thank you for the seeds that they have planted and the things that they have done for you. Keep them safe as they travel back to the U.S. Make their preparations easy as they deal with luggage, packing, book arrangements and apartment matters. May there be a glorious celebration at La Ascension in Surco this Sunday, Lord. May your splendor be especially evident! And guide the Mudges into those new things that you would have them do for you.
