All good things are possible because we have a loving God. Therefore it is right and proper that the name of the Lord is to be praised. We begin a series on the psalms this week with a Psalm of praise – Psalm 113. Join us as we give thanks and praise to the God who made all things, and continues to lift up those in need.

A Song of Praise – Psalm 113 June 6-7, 2015
Praise the Lord! Praise, O servants of the Lord; praise the name of the Lord. Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time on and forevermore. Psalm 113:1-2
The name of the Lord is to be praised. It is God who has the power and the willingness to raise the poor and needy from the dust and to treat God’s children as royalty. All good things are possible because of a loving God.

- What kinds of things do these praise psalms praise God for?
- What was a high point of your day? What was a low point?
- What does our community/culture praise? Where does God fit in with the things we praise?
- What is the most wonderful thing God has done for you? How has that changed you?
Write one different praise word on a slip of paper every day. Concentrate on that word throughout the day. Notice how often God shows up in your world.
May God show up boldly in your world today. Amen.
