Sometimes people who lead us in the intercessions on Sunday mornings (do you remember?) share a song. So I asked Chioma to simply send me some songs just as a voice message to my phone. These are two songs from her collection:
Thank you, Chioma, for sharing with us not only on Sunday mornings but also during these times!
The words are:
Thanks, thanks we give you thanks for all you have done In our lives we are so blessed Our souls have found rest O Lord, we give you thanks
Lord, you are more precious than silver Lord, you are more costly than gold Lord, you are more beautiful than diamonds There’s nothing we desire compared with you
You are the Lord / Let your name be glorified (2x) We give you glory and honour You are the Lord / Let your name be glorified
We give you all the glory We worship you, our God You are worthy to be praised
An invitation by our choirmaster Yotin Tiewtrakul to join our Zoom Evening Prayer (every Saturday at 7pm), and a suggestion to read (or say or sing!) through the Psalms from 1 to 150 in a month:
Psalms in a month according to the Book of Common Prayer
The Book of Common Prayer divides the psalms into sections for the thirty days of the month. So for example for Day 1 the appointed psalms are Psalms 1-5 for Morning Prayer and Psalms 6-8 for Evening Prayer.
Maybe you’d like to just jump in and follow this ancient practice? If you just pick one time during the day to read (or say or sing) the appointed psalms you can of course do Psalms 1-8 on the first day etc. What to do when a month has 31 days? How about reciting one or two of your favourites? Those which really spoke to you?
