Psalm 134 - Bless God Through the Night

 

Summary:

Tonight's study begins with Psalm 4 as a possible response of David to Absalom's rebellion.  We branched into how we can and must find joy in our afflictions, digressed into one reason for intercessory prayer including prayer to Saints, and concluded with a discussion of complete trust in and surrender to the will of God.

We then continued on to Psalm 134 by first introducing the Songs of Ascents.  We referenced the round the clock praise of God in the temple and its extension into our need and desire as a community to provide for those who today offer their lives in constant prayer and praise.  With finished by dwelling on the deep intimacy we can have with God.

We then turned off the cameras and prayed Night Prayer of the vigil of All Saints which uses Pss 4 and 134 as the psalmody.
