Psalm 67

Psalm 67 is a short psalm of only seven verses. It is sometimes called a doxology — a song of praise to God. If we examine this psalm, we will see that it gives us an outline for us to use as we worship God.

First, we need to ask God for His mercy. All of us have sinned and disobeyed God. We all need God to show us His mercy and grace. God’s greatest act of mercy was sending Jesus to earth to die so we can be forgiven and live with Him forever. And God continues to show us His mercy every day of our lives.

Second, we need to praise God. We have many reasons to praise God. He loves us, He has saved us and He continues to be with us every day. We can praise God through our prayers, our songs and our service to other people.

Finally, we should ask God to bless us. Psalm 67:5-6 talks about asking for God’s blessing “God, our God, bless us. Let out land give us a great harvest. May God bless us, and may all people on earth fear and respect him.”

Use this psalm today in your time of worship. God will show you His mercy, receive your praise and bless you as you serve Him!
