Summer Psalm for August 31, 2014 – Pentecost 12

Summer Psalm for August 31, 2014 – Pentecost 12
Based on Psalm 73 (selected verses)

Song Choices: 
“Praise You in this Storm” by Marc Hall
“God My Rock” by Paul Baloche and Brenton Brown

Level of Difficulty:
These are both great songs for your worship team to offer but would prove to be difficult for the congregation.

You Tube:
Praise You in this Storm:

God My Rock:

Rationale for the Song Choices:
They both capture the spirit of verses 23-26.

Suggested Format:
This is the last week of this summer series. As such, I am proposing something a little different.  Make your song choice and instead of the usual responsive Psalm of the Day format, use the song in it’s place but plan for an instrumental interlude midway through the song where the Pastor reads versus 23-26 along with the background music.  The band then finishes the song.

Psalm 73:23-26 Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heartand my portion forever.
