Write a Psalm of Praise

WRITE A PSALM OF PRAISE

Praise The Lord Oh My Soul

Read Luke 1:39-56

Consider Mary’s relationship with the Lord.

Reread Mary’s Song (vs. 46 – 55).  Mary’s song of praise, known as The Magnificat, invites us to participate with God in his mission for the world.

What does The Magnificat say about the heart of God?

Ask the Holy Spirit to help you reflect on your relationship with God. Reflect on times you have experienced overflowing love and joy.  Reflect on the ways you have been overwhelmed by injustice in the world today. How is God calling you to participate in his mission for the world?

For what specifically will you sing this week as you prepare for God to come near?

Try to put your thoughts into a sentence of praise to the Lord and write your own psalm of praise.  Make it a  shared  or community psalm by inviting your family, friends, or small group members to add a line to the psalm. Share your thoughts on social media with #FaithUMCAdvent!

The Lord has done great things for us!
