Psalm 24 - One A Week Psalm Project
One A Week Psalm Project
I thought I might have been able to continue this project while I was overseas but it didn’t quite happen. I did, however, spend a lot of time with my head lifted back looking up at the amazing ceilings.
V 7 “Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.”
This psalm is a beautiful one. It is part of a Celtic prayer I have prayed quite a bit and so it feels very familiar and beautiful even though it also often feels a bit out of reach. Do I have a clean hands and a pure heart? Is it even possible?
I guess the thing is that by asking for forgiveness I am blessed with these again. Do I ask for forgiveness enough?
If nothing else, I hope to remember the feeling of awe, of being unable to do anything except lift up my head in wonder of a cathedral and pray that I remember God in this way also.
