The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster

Psalm 125
Those who trust in God
are like Zion Mountain:
Nothing can move it, a rock-solid mountain
you can always depend on.
Mountains encircle Jerusalem,
and God encircles his people—
always has and always will.
The fist of the wicked
will never violate
What is due the righteous,
provoking wrongful violence.
Be good to your good people, God,
to those whose hearts are right!
God will round up the backsliders,
corral them with the incorrigibles.
Peace over Israel!

Praying the Psalms
There must be a place within
where the Spirit of God is found.
There must be a place of peace
resting within the body.
There must be, for in you,
God, I feel solid, unmovable.
In you, I am renewed.
