2/29/24 Psalm 67 Blessing

February 29. Have you ever said, “I wish I had a little more time?” “I just need one more day?” Well, here it is. Today is your free day, that extra 24 hours. It’s leap year and God’s gift to you is one additional day this year. What will you do with it? I sure don’t want to spend it reading some long blog (or writing one) so, here are 20 quick suggestions. Pick out 3 or 4 and do them today on this gift day. And know that you are absolutely blessed.

  20. Pray Psalm 67 over you and your house.

“May God be gracious to us and bless us
    and make his face shine on us—
so that your ways may be known on earth,
    your salvation among all nations.

May the peoples praise you, God;
    may all the peoples praise you.
May the nations be glad and sing for joy,
    for you rule the peoples with equity
    and guide the nations of the earth.
May the peoples praise you, God;
    may all the peoples praise you.

The land yields its harvest;
    God, our God, blesses us.
May God bless us still,
    so that all the ends of the earth will fear him.”
