Sacred Reading – July 28 – August 3, 2020

8The Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

9The Lord is good to all, and his compassion is over all that he has made.

14The Lord upholds all who are falling, and raises up all who are bowed down.

15The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food in due season.

16You open your hand, satisfying the desire of every living thing.

17The Lord is just in all his ways, and kind in all his doings.

18The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.

19He fulfills the desire of all who fear him; he also hears their cry, and saves them.

20The Lord watches over all who love him, but all the wicked he will destroy.

21My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord, and all flesh will bless his holy name forever and ever.

Psalm 145:8-9, 14-21
