Prayer of the Day

Feast of St. John Chrysostom, Bishop & Doctor of the Church

September 13th, 2014
""No good tree bears bad fruit, nor again does a bad tree bear good fruit."" Luke 6 : 43

Psalm 115

“A thanksgiving sacrifice I make to you O Lord.

How can I repay the Lord

for his goodness to me?

The cup of salvation I will raise;

I will call on the Lord’s name

A thanksgiving sacrifice I make;

I will call on the Lord’s name.

My vows to the Lord I will fulfill

before all his people.”

The psalmist is praying in moments of distress. Faith and commitment to his vows is very present. Reflecting on this psalm, God is close to the psalmist. A thanksgiving sacrifice I will make. I will call on the Lord’s name.

Prayer God our Father, may our prayer be like the psalmist, thanksgiving and praise. Amen
