Key Verses: Psalms 145:3,13
Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised!…Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom and Your dominion endures throughout all generations.
Psalm 145 is another acrostic poem in the Hebrew language. It serves as an introduction to the final five hymns of praise and worship! The theme is in verse five. David extols, blesses, meditates, declares, speaks, and tells us all that every day he will make known with his mouth the praises of the Lord! Praising God not only involves private and public worship but let us never forget that it means telling others in the world around us, particularly teaching the next generation all about God and His mighty deeds!
In Psalm 146 the great king, David, makes a declaration. We are to praise the greatest King, the One Who is King of kings! David states that as long as he lives he will practice what he preaches to us. He ends the Psalm with another, “PRAISE THE LORD!!!”
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Lord God, I know that You alone are the One in whom I can put total, ultimate trust. Therefore, I trust the One Who did as Psalm 146 says, “Opens the eyes of the blind,” “Raises those who are bowed down and loves the righteous” (remember He gives us His righteousness by faith), “Watches over the strangers,” “Relieves the fatherless and widow,” and “Turns upside down” (the wicked). In the Name of this One, the One Whose Name is Jesus, I pray. Amen!!!
100 PERSONAL WORDS:
This day here in Canada is called “Remembrance Day.” We remember those who gave their lives to secure our peace and freedoms in this land. I think that I can best honour these who fell in battle by focusing on the death of the Lord Jesus Christ in the greatest war of all…the war against sin, death itself, the devil and his forces of evil. In 2013 I attended a Remembrance function on the eleventh of November. I sat at a table with a mother and father who had lost a son in the Afganistan war. Their son had a premonition of his death and made a videotape for his parents. I’ve just read again Psalm 146:5a, where there’s another use of the word, “Happy.” In yesterday’s reading there were two uses of “Happy.” I am a happy person! Praise the Lord!!!
Yours for remembering to remember, not just once a year but daily!
Amen to David’s comments and his prayer, Edward and I are hoping to go to the Cenotaph if the snow doesn’t get heavier. Jesus did pay the ultimate price for us for which I will be forever grateful. I am also grateful for the men and women who served to give us our freedom. ❤️????Blessings to all
Yes Eleanor we pray with thanksgiving in our hearts also for the freedoms in our Country; God bless to all…..
prayers of healing for Sherrie; she had cancer treatments;she is very depressed;we pray the Lord will uplift her spirits and that she will be healed in Jesus Name amen
Good morning I just want to take this opportunity to say thank you again with an attitude of gratitude to the comments thoughts and prayers and tips for those who responded to my request thank you from the bottom of my heart and may God richly bless you amen
Today is Remembrance Day let us stop and pause to give thanks to the men and women who served in the wars for our freedom but even more so we should give thanks to Jesus who paid the ultimate price for our freedom amen
Remembrance Day: Thank You, Lord God, for the sacrifices of those who gave, and give, so much for so many, fighting for freedom, for families, for country… Bless all those who give and serve today, Lord, and their families, too.
“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.” (John 15:13)
Please help us all to remember and think on things which are “true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.” (from Paul, in his letter to the Philippians).
Amen to this wonderful prayer. I was one of the more fortunate ones whose husband returned (and now deceased) with sons and daughters.
I just got home an hr ago from the Rememberance service.David’s closing ‘100 Words’ were essentially my prayer before beginning today’s reading.I thanked God for the sacrifice of so many boys who became men and sacrificed themselves against a greater evil.I very,very,very strongly ‘suspect’ that the Lord will meet those who have not had ‘reasonable opportunity’ to accept His offer,just as their life ends and educates them supernaturally “so that none are lost”.Ravi Zacharias mentions this in one of his videos also.This may be that video,below.God bless
A Soldier’s Cross
The soldier had honourably met his fate
And as he stood before the gate,
He thought he would forever wait
But his name was found atop the slate.
You have given your precious life,
To help free others from hellish strife
Leaving behind both child and wife,
Now the reward that awaits is just and rife.
He wondered if he’d be sent below
For having to kill his country’s foe,
But then was told an emphatic No,
Straight to the Lord with honour go.
Long ago a battle was valiantly fought,
And in so doing an example was taught,
To His people who have never forgot,
With His life our forgiveness was bought.
In Heaven soldiers will be everywhere,
For they gave that others might fare
With peace and love for all to share,
But a soldier’s cross is heaviest to bear.

Absolutely beautiful poem, Bill. Thank you for it.
I just watched the TV Remembrance Day Ceremonies held in Ottawa; remembering all who gave the ultimate price for their country as well as all those who fought alongside them.
Two of my brothers were among them; Nick came home, but Joe did not, we remember him on this day.
But there is one to be remembered forever, one who paid the Greatest price; who suffered and died for all mankind; The only Begotten Son of God our Father., Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; King of kings and Lord of all. Amen and Amen.
Praise His Holy Name!!
GOD BLESS YOU IRENE
AMEN AMEN AND AMEN!
thank you Sah

Praying David’s prayer on this special day and remembering all those who fell for our lives and safety of our country, including my Uncle John. Wishing all saints a blessed day in the Lord; be careful in this snow storm.
Say also: “Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather and deliver us from among the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name, and glory in your praise.” 1 Chronicles 16:35 ESV

You are still sharing life of the lord Jesus and I rejoice in the children seeing and hearing him in the ways you describe while we grow dim and distracted , but I am glad that Christmas songs of happiness are once again bursting fourth from my long quiet voice , and I believe it comes from finding of the ark and its stilling living mercy seat projecting the hope of this day marking the faith route thru another thousand years A men!
