The Psalms’ Inherent Prayer

The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster

Psalm 133
How wonderful, how beautiful,
when brothers and sisters get along!
It’s like costly anointing oil
flowing down head and beard,
Flowing down Aaron’s beard,
flowing down the collar of his priestly robes.
It’s like the dew on Mount Hermon
flowing down the slopes of Zion.
Yes, that’s where God commands the blessing,
ordains eternal life.

Praying the Psalms
Make eternal life shine
through our everyday moments,
when siblings, neighbors, stranger,
and even enemies become friends.
Let eternal life be not just some future hope,
but possible here unveiled
in today’s embodied actions of love.
