The Psalms’ Inherent Prayer

The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster

Psalm 128
All you who fear God, how blessed you are!
how happily you walk on his smooth straight road!
You worked hard and deserve all you’ve got coming.
Enjoy the blessing! Soak in the goodness!

Your wife will bear children as a vine bears grapes,
your household lush as a vineyard,
The children around your table
as fresh and promising as young olive shoots.
Stand in awe of God’s Yes.
Oh, how he blesses the one who fears God!

Enjoy the good life in Jerusalem
every day of your life.
And enjoy your grandchildren.
Peace to Israel!

Praying the Psalms
May the way be as joyful as this:
all blessings, promises, assurances be true.
For our longing for the smooth straight road,
and our burning ache for goodness and peace
is ready to be met, fulfilled, made complete.
May we find our way to your “Yes.”
