Easter: The cry of my heart

Psalm 5: 1-8

Listen to my words, Lord, consider my lament.

2 Hear my cry for help, my King and my God,

    for to you I pray.

3 In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you

    and wait expectantly.

4 For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness;

    with you, evil people are not welcome.

5 The arrogant cannot stand in your presence.

You hate all who do wrong;

6     you destroy those who tell lies.

The bloodthirsty and deceitful you, Lord, detest.

7 But I, by your great love, can come into your house;

in reverence I bow down toward your holy temple.

8 Lead me, Lord, in your righteousness because of my enemies—

    make your way straight before me.[1]

Worship was a little jagged this morning.  YouTube wouldn’t load, lap top frozen, and my keyboard would not change keys.  A dear friend told me to take a deep breath.  That breath, Spirit lead, allowed me to continue on Facebook.  Goodness knows.

The upshot is that there is no video to load this morning to share with you here.

Prayers this morning: 

  • for Pat P. as she heals from her injury
  • for all those who have lost their jobs
  • for quick resolution for those waiting for the CERB
  • for the family of Reta Warlich who passed this week. (Sheri, Joey, Sasha, and Abby
  • for families near and far
  • for Nova Scotia in the midst of tragedy

The mind map is below.  Follow the numbers on the map to get the flow of the message.  You can still watch the Facebook video.  Follow me @doll.creelman OR check out the DMS Pastoral Charge Facebook page.
