Read Psalm 147:1-12

147  Praise the Lord! 
It is good to sing praise to our God; 
it is pleasant and right to praise him. 
2 The Lord is restoring Jerusalem; 
he is bringing back the exiles. 
3 He heals the broken-hearted 
and bandages their wounds. 
4 He has decided the number of the stars 
and calls each one by name. 
5 Great and mighty is our Lord; 
his wisdom cannot be measured. 
6 He raises the humble, 
but crushes the wicked to the ground. 
7 Sing hymns of praise to the Lord; 
play music on the harp to our God. 
8 He spreads clouds over the sky; 
he provides rain for the earth 
and makes grass grow on the hills. 
9 He gives animals their food 
and feeds the young ravens when they call. 
10 His pleasure is not in strong horses, 
nor his delight in brave soldiers; 
11 but he takes pleasure in those who honour him, 
in those who trust in his constant love. 
12 Praise the Lord

Think

He heals the broken-hearted and bandages their wounds.  He raises the humble.  He provides rain for the earth.

Spend some time visualizing what the Psalmist describes.


Pray

Pray for the broken-hearted and wounded people you know.  Pray for yourself.

Pray for the 'humiliated' people you know.  Ask God to lift them up.

Lord I put my trust in your constant love.
