A Prayer for Love, from Daily Prayer for All Seasons

 

Loving God, we no longer look for Jesus among the dead, for he is alive in our world, our church and our hearts. Renew and strengthen us in the risen life we share in Christ, in whose name we pray. Amen.

 



Psalm 18

  I love you, O LORD my strength, *
O LORD my stronghold, my crag, and my haven.
  My God, my rock in whom I put my trust, *
my shield, the horn of my salvation, and my refuge; you are worthy of praise.
  I will call upon the LORD, *
and so shall I be saved from my enemies.
  The breakers of death rolled over me, *
and the torrents of oblivion made me afraid.
  The cords of hell entangled me, *
and the snares of death were set for me.
  I called upon the LORD in my distress *
and cried out to my God for help.
  He heard my voice from his heavenly dwelling; *
my cry of anguish came to his ears.
  The earth reeled and rocked; *
the roots of the mountains shook; they reeled because of his anger.
  Smoke rose from his nostrils and a consuming fire out of his mouth; *
hot burning coals blazed forth from him.
10   He parted the heavens and came down *
with a storm cloud under his feet.
11   He mounted on cherubim and flew; *
he swooped on the wings of the wind.
12   He wrapped darkness about him; *
he made dark waters and thick clouds his pavilion.
13   From the brightness of his presence, through the clouds, *
burst hailstones and coals of fire.
14   The LORD thundered out of heaven; *
the Most High uttered his voice.
15   He loosed his arrows and scattered them; *
he hurled thunderbolts and routed them.
16   The beds of the seas were uncovered, and the foundations of the world laid bare, *
at your battle cry, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of your nostrils.
17   He reached down from on high and grasped me; *
he drew me out of great waters.
18   He delivered me from my strong enemies and from those who hated me; *
for they were too mighty for me.
19   They confronted me in the day of my disaster; *
but the LORD was my support.
20   He brought me out into an open place; *
he rescued me because he delighted in me.
