    We often invite people to join us in prayer when we’re hurt, scared, or confused. But how often do we invite our friends to join us in prayers of thanksgiving, as a community, when our prayers have been answered? Psalm 30 affirms the prayer of lament, but also making our personal joy a time for community praise and celebration. This way, it helps us both to weep with those who weep, and rejoice with those who rejoice.

    Jesus’ disciples asked him to teach them to pray, and he taught them a prayer popularly known as the Lord’s Prayer (Luke 11.1-4). The Psalms also teach us to pray. What happens when you allow the Lord’s Prayer and one of the Psalms to have a conversation with each other? In this sermon, we find that Psalm 100 illuminates the Lord’s Prayer; and the Lord’s prayer does the same for Psalm 100.
