“Who is like the LORD our God?” – Psalm 113:5 

Written by Rev. Brandon Durán

The Psalms are a source of beauty and inspiration.  The Psalms are a guidebook for prayer.  The Psalms are a response to love.  I encourage you to find a space for prayer, center your heart, and read Nan Merrill’s interpretation of Psalm 113 from her book Psalms for Praying.

Sing praises to the Beloved of all hearts! 

Sing praises, all you who would honor Love, sing praises to the Architect of the universe! 

Bless the Holy One from this time forth and forever more! 

Aspire to know the Unknowable, to enter fully into the Great Mystery, to be fertile ground to the Heart-seed of Love. 

Aspire to the gifts of the Spirit, be open to Grace and express gratitude! 

Who is like the Blessed One, the One who is Infinite Love, Power, and Wisdom, who enters into human hearts and brings comfort to those in need? 

Yes, those who call upon the Merciful One, are lifted up and Blessed with new life; 

They wear a crown of Joy, as they recognize their Oneness with Spirit. 

Come, all who suffer and are heavy-laden, open your hearts to Love! 

Sing praises to the Heart of all hearts!
