Prayers for Everyday

REJOICE

Leave a comment

Lord, when I was a child
and we sang, “This is the day
that the Lord has made,”
I thought it meant Sunday.
It was only much later
that someone told me
that it meant every day.
We can rejoice on an ordinary day,
when nothing much is happening,
and on special days.
Even in times of sorrow, Lord,
we find comfort in your arms
and do not despair.

Psalm 118:24-25:
This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Save us, we beseech you, O Lord! O Lord, we beseech you, give us success!

Hymn: This is the Day
