Psalm 77: reaffirm faith in creation through meditation
Psalm 77 of the Catholic Bible was meant to be read carefully or to be sung with devotion to the Creator.
Read this psalm to reflect on the search for God. Listen to the Creator and He is always willing to solve any of the problems that man faces. It is necessary to reaffirm faith in creation through meditation.
The song praises the creator and honors His name
Night prayer helps us ingratiate ourselves with our inner world. Accompanying this prayer with a meditation enriches the soul and helps us stay calm to regain balance in our lives.
This psalm will help us remember the greatness of the Lord and his mercy. To perform a deep meditation we can adapt the environment by placing some essence that helps us to relax or igniting some incense aroma that we like.
This Psalm 77 is very powerful because it leads us to reflect on the presence of the Lord in our lives. It relates a passage where the Israelites crossed the Red Sea under the guidance and protection of the Lord. Jehovah released his people and guided him on the paths of freedom.
This great fact will help us to understand that the assistance of the Father is permanent in our lives and will arrive at the moment in which we truly need it.
The strength and power of our Lord are infinite, we must fully trust that his presence will always accompany us to guide and protect us.
The cry of the faithful who praises God
A man prays when he needs the presence of God in his existence. We must keep in mind that the prayer to the Creator must be continuous as a sign of gratitude for all that he has given us.
Psalm 77 helps us to remember that God’s assistance is permanent in our lives. We must not forget that the Lord protects the man with a noble and pure heart who leads his life on the path of good.
Jehovah loves us because we are his faithful children. Let us glorify the presence of the Lord with this psalm that reaffirms his great power and greatness as the creator of heaven and earth.
1 I cried out to God for help;
I cried out to God to hear me.
2 When I was in distress, I sought the Lord;
at night I stretched out untiring hands,
and I would not be comforted.
3 I remembered you, God, and I groaned;
I meditated, and my spirit grew faint.
4 You kept my eyes from closing;
I was too troubled to speak.
5 I thought about the former days,
the years of long ago;
6 I remembered my songs in the night.
My heart meditated and my spirit asked:
7 “Will the Lord reject forever?
Will he never show his favor again?
8 Has his unfailing love vanished forever?
Has his promise failed for all time?
9 Has God forgotten to be merciful?
Has he in anger withheld his compassion?”
10 Then I thought, “To this I will appeal:
the years when the Most High stretched out his right hand.
11 I will remember the deeds of the Lord;
yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.
12 I will consider all your works
and meditate on all your mighty deeds.”
13 Your ways, God, are holy.
What god is as great as our God?
14 You are the God who performs miracles;
you display your power among the peoples.
15 With your mighty arm you redeemed your people,
the descendants of Jacob and Joseph.
16 The waters saw you, God,
the waters saw you and writhed;
the very depths were convulsed.
17 The clouds poured down water,
the heavens resounded with thunder;
your arrows flashed back and forth.
18 Your thunder was heard in the whirlwind,
your lightning lit up the world;
the earth trembled and quaked.
19 Your path led through the sea,
your way through the mighty waters,
though your footprints were not seen.
20 You led your people like a flock
by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
