Oh, give thanks to the LORD! Call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples! (Psalm 105:1)
      Jesus, yours is the name that is above every name. We call upon you and your name for your church and your people. Help us make your deeds known among the peoples.

Sing to him, sing psalms to him; talk of all his wondrous works! (Psalm 105:2)
      Holy Spirit, let our lips sing and speak of Jesus and all his wondrous works.

Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the LORD! (Psalm 105:3)
      Father, we rejoice in the glory of Jesus’ holy name. Give us undivided hearts to praise him.

Seek the LORD and his strength; seek his face evermore! (Psalm 105:4)
      Jesus, we seek your strength — the power of your Holy Spirit.

Remember his marvelous works which he has done, his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth, (Psalm 105:5)
      Holy Spirit, please help us to be a people who remember Jesus’ works and tell others. Help us to live by the judgments of his words. Thank you.

O seed of Abraham his servant, you children of Jacob, his chosen ones! (Psalm 105:6)
      Father, thank you that by faith in your son Jesus we become heirs to the promises made to Abraham your servant and friend.

A word received: You are called to serve. Listen to me and I will show you what to do.

A word received: Keep your eyes on me. Let me guide you — not public opinion.

Honduras–Choluteca River “desert”

August 15, 2013

From USA Today: No true desert climate exists in Honduras, a country in the tropical Central American isthmus. Yet, after Hurricane Mitch caused massive flooding and scoured the earth in 1998, an artificial “desert” was created in the pastures and fields along the Choluteca River on the country’s dry, Pacific coastal plains. Massive flooding caused by Mitch tore away topsoil, uprooted trees and moved cubic miles of sand into the area. The small amounts of annual rainfall in this part of Honduras means that this area could eventually evolve into an actual desert absent human intervention

Psalm 107:33-42 (ESV)
33 He turns rivers into a desert,
springs of water into thirsty ground,
34 a fruitful land into a salty waste,
because of the evil of its inhabitants.

Lord, send the Helper to the residents along the Choluteca River to convict them concerning sin and righteousness and judgment. (John 16:8)

35 He turns a desert into pools of water,
a parched land into springs of water.
36 And there he lets the hungry dwell,
and they establish a city to live in;
37 they sow fields and plant vineyards
and get a fruitful yield.
38 By his blessing they multiply greatly,
and he does not let their livestock diminish.

May it be so in the Choluteca River “desert.”

39 When they are diminished and brought low
through oppression, evil, and sorrow,
40 he pours contempt on princes
and makes them wander in trackless wastes;

Pour contempt on any demonic princes along the Choluteca River.

41 but he raises up the needy out of affliction
and makes their families like flocks.
42 The upright see it and are glad,
and all wickedness shuts its mouth.

Amen.
