Read Psalm 126
126 When the Lord brought us back to Jerusalem,g
it was like a dream!
2How we laughed, how we sang for joy!
Then the other nations said about us,
“The Lord did great things for them.”
3Indeed he did great things for us;
how happy we were!
4Lord, make us prosperous again,h
just as the rain brings water back to dry riverbeds.
5Let those who wept as they sowed their seed,
gather the harvest with joy!
6Those who wept as they went out carrying the seed
will come back singing for joy,
as they bring in the harvest.
The people of Judah went into exile in Babylon - this Psalm celebrates their return. They celebrate their restoration and new life.
As Christians we can celebrate the good news of God's Kingdom in our lives.
Pray for new life in your church: "LORD, make us prosperous again, just as the rain brings water back to dry riverbeds."
