Psalm 115

Not to us, Lord, not to us
    but to your name be the glory,
    because of your love and faithfulness.

Why do the nations say,
    “Where is their God?”
Our God is in heaven;
    he does whatever pleases him.
But their idols are silver and gold,
    made by human hands.
They have mouths, but cannot speak,
    eyes, but cannot see.
They have ears, but cannot hear,
    noses, but cannot smell.
They have hands, but cannot feel,
    feet, but cannot walk,
    nor can they utter a sound with their throats.
Those who make them will be like them,
    and so will all who trust in them.

All you Israelites, trust in the Lord
    he is their help and shield.
10 House of Aaron, trust in the Lord
    he is their help and shield.
11 You who fear him, trust in the Lord
    he is their help and shield.

12 The Lord remembers us and will bless us:
    He will bless his people Israel,
    he will bless the house of Aaron,
13 he will bless those who fear the Lord
    small and great alike.

14 May the Lord cause you to flourish,
    both you and your children.
15 May you be blessed by the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.

16 The highest heavens belong to the Lord,
    but the earth he has given to mankind.
17 It is not the dead who praise the Lord,
    those who go down to the place of silence;
18 it is we who extol the Lord,
    both now and forevermore.

    Praise the Lord.

Peter’s Pack of Pickled Pigskin Picks 2020- Week 14

This is Week 14 in the longest college football season in memory. Because of postponements there are two more weeks after this. So, I am going crazy (I was half-way there already) and added comments below.

Once again, I (Peter) won last week, so I picked the tie breaker. Be nice. Those Cats of mine are struggling (11 straight regular season losses).

So enjoy the fun and get those guesses in before NOON EST Saturday, Dec 5, 2020.

  1. #5 Texas A&M @ Auburn- Can Auburn make up for its loss in the Iron Bowl? We’ll see.

  2. Texas @ Kansas State – Can Texas make something of the season? Who knows?

  3. Nebraska @ Purdue – Can Nebraska win its 2nd game? Who can tell?

  4. Penn State @ Rutgers – Can Penn State win 2 in a row? The Shadow knows.

  5. Eastern Michigan @ Western Michigan – Can you say which school has the best record in the state? Who? WMU, that’s who.

  6. #12 Indiana @ #16 Wisconsin – Can you believe how good IU is this year? Who knew!

  7. South Carolina @ Kentucky (Alternate tie breaker – final score and winner, please)

  8. Georgia Tech @ NC State – Can Hornets sting again? Stay tuned!

  9. Pillow Fight: Bowling Green @ Akron (both 0-4) – Two bad teams against each other? Too blue.

10. Tie Breaker (predict winner and final score): Colorado @Arizona – Can the ‘Cats Bear Down? I hope so!

Alternates in case of cancellations and postponements:

#24 Tulsa @ Navy; #19 Iowa @ Illinois; #13 BYU @ #18 Coastal Carolina

It’s Thursday, so don’t forget to pray for Jo, her former students, and the people of PNG.

Psalm 114

When Israel came out of Egypt,
    Jacob from a people of foreign tongue,
Judah became God’s sanctuary,
    Israel his dominion.

The sea looked and fled,
    the Jordan turned back;
the mountains leaped like rams,
    the hills like lambs.

Why was it, sea, that you fled?
    Why, Jordan, did you turn back?
Why, mountains, did you leap like rams,
    you hills, like lambs?

Tremble, earth, at the presence of the Lord,
    at the presence of the God of Jacob,
who turned the rock into a pool,
    the hard rock into springs of water.

Prayer Requests 12-2-20

It’s Wednesday, so don’t forget Ajissun and the folks in The Gambia.

Psalm 113

Praise the Lord.

   Praise the Lord, you his servants;
    praise the name of the Lord.
Let the name of the Lord be praised,
    both now and forevermore.
From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets,
    the name of the Lord is to be praised.

The Lord is exalted over all the nations,
    his glory above the heavens.
Who is like the Lord our God,
    the One who sits enthroned on high,
who stoops down to look
    on the heavens and the earth?

He raises the poor from the dust
    and lifts the needy from the ash heap;
he seats them with princes,
    with the princes of his people.
He settles the childless woman in her home
    as a happy mother of children.

   Praise the Lord.
