Prayer: We come to you, Lord, who answers prayer. Amen
Reading: Psalm 65 (Click to read text)
Stop and GROW: After reading the text, discuss/ponder the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's Book of Faith questions, which are part of Camp Mount Luther's GROW Time with campers.
QUESTION 1: What scares, confuses, challenges, or doesn’t make sense to me in this text?
QUESTION 2: What delights me in this text or is my favorite part of the story?
QUESTION 3: What stories or memories does this text stir in me?
QUESTION 4: What is God up to in this text?
Reflection: "Google it!" is the standard way to find answers today. Anything from complicated recipes to convenient restaurants, from urgent medical advice to useless trivial information. Google the question and get the answer.
It may seem Google has the answer to everything for everyone, but "Oh you who answer prayer! To you all flesh shall come." (Psalm 65: 2)
We are so accustomed to answers at our fingertips it is good to remind ourselves answers can come just putting our hands together and being still. Read Psalm 65 again to realize everything is at God's fingertips, too. --Ruth Gates
