Praying the Psalms with Luther

READ: Ezekiel 43 Psalm 127 Hebrews 11:1-12

The 127th Psalm is a Psalm of instruction. It teaches us that worldly authority and household order are nothing less than God’s gifts, and rest only in His hand. For where He does not give peace and good government, there no wisdom, order, or armor that can hold onto peace. Where He does not give good fortune, with wife, spouse, and workers, there all care and work will amount to nothing.

PRAY: For the benefit of all mankind, O Lord, You instituted Holy marriage, and have promised to bless therein every house in which dwells Your fear. Yes, Lord, even You sit at the fireside of them, that love You, as Your own hearth and home. Cause Your peace to dwell under our roof, and bless the labors of our hands. Amen.
