Psalm 142: Sharing Our Worries With God

In our study of Psalm 142 tonight, we begin by noting how the Hebrew of the psalm is much later than David even though it claims to be a psalm of David and how the psalmist sees his present distress in the life of David.  We then do the same and discuss honestly sharing our complaints, difficulties, and pain with God.  We see how the psalmist, Jeremiah, and even Jesus Himself does this all the while completely trusting in God.  We also note some of the messianic overtones of the psalm, explore how our suffering and deliverance can be important to others, and conclude by considering the bounty of God toward us and our great hope in Him.

Psalm 149: Let the Faithful Rejoice In God

We examine Psalm 149 in this study as the last of the psalms for Morning Prayer for the Solemnity of All Souls.  We discuss the context and dwell chiefly on the points the second exodus, the wonder of God delighting in His people, and the unpleasant need to eventually deal with those who reject God in order to bring about lasting peace.

Psalm 25: Humility and Self-knowledge

This evening, we finished Psalm 25 spending most of the time discussing the critical need for humility and its connection with grace.  To do so, we read several quotes from The Dialogue from Saint Catherine of Siena.  We then spent a little time on forgiveness, friendship with God, and spiritual warfare.

We prayed and did not record Midday Prayer from Thursday Week I in the Divine Office for the second half.

Fruitful and Fruitless Faith - James 2:12-23

We continue through James chapter two and the discussion of works and faith.  We spend time comparing Paul, James, and John, digress briefly on Anti-Christs, and conclude discussing friendship with God.
