‘God of hosts bring us back, let your face shine on us and we shall be saved.’ (Psalm 79:4)

20th December 2018

This Sunday’s psalm is a prayer of deliverance. It originally referred to Israel’s deliverance from captivity in Assyria. However, let us make it our prayer of deliverance in which we ask God to bring us back into God’s wonderful light. We are also reminded of the beautiful words from the Hebrew blessing (Numbers 6:25): "May the Lord make His face shine upon you". Like the sun, bathing the earth in light, let us today ask for God's favour to radiate on and in us.
