Daily Psalm and Prayer, April 12, 2021



A Prayer for Discernment, from Daily Prayer for All Seasons


In the work we do this day, may the risen Christ teach us.

In the challenges we face this day, may the risen Christ guide us.

Through the people we meet this day, may the risen Christ renew us.

As we respond to the hungers and hurts of this world,

May the Spirit of the risen Christ strengthen us. Amen.

Psalm 2

  Why are the nations in an uproar? *
Why do the peoples mutter empty threats?
  Why do the kings of the earth rise up in revolt, and the princes plot together, *
against the LORD and against his Anointed?
  Let us break their yoke, they say; *
let us cast off their bonds from us.
  He whose throne is in heaven is laughing; *
the Lord has them in derision.
  Then he speaks to them in his wrath, *
and his rage fills them with terror.
  I myself have set my king *
. upon my holy hill of Zion
  Let me announce the decree of the LORD: *
he said to me, “You are my Son; this day have I begotten you.
  Ask of me, and I will give you the nations for your inheritance *
and the ends of the earth for your possession.
  You shall crush them with an iron rod *
and shatter them like a piece of pottery.”
10   And now, you kings, be wise; *
be warned, you rulers of the earth.
11   Submit to the LORD with fear, *
and with trembling bow before him;
12   Lest he be angry and you perish; *
for his wrath is quickly kindled.
13   Happy are they all *
who take refuge in him!
