Tuesday Prayer

I  don't have much scripture committed to memory, but the following is one that is rolling through my heart a lot lately.   I am pretty sure it is from a Psalm, and I am pretty sure this is a "karla-phrase"--close but not quite the NRSV version.  As it rolls through my heart and soul, it is a song learned long, long ago.

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases-
God's mercies are new every day....
They are new every morning,
new every morning, 
Great is thy faithfulness, O God, 
Great is thy faithfulness. 

I am oh so grateful for the tender mercies that are new every morning.

Peace, and mercy and faithfulness be yours today.  Amen.

Beautiful--one of my favorites, but believe it or not, it's from the Lamentations of Jeremiah. Here's the reference: http://bible.oremus.org/?ql=178087967. Thanks for sharing.

Peace to you.
