This excerpt comes from Psalms for All Seasons, commenting on Psalm 136:
The specific references in the psalm extend to each of the first five books of the Bible, making this psalm a response to the entirety of Torah.
The second half of each verse is an acclamation of praise appropriate for use by the assembly.
This narrative or history-telling prayer follows a similar form to Christian prayers at the Lord’s Supper.
A prayer for reflection:
your love is a banner unfurled over all times and places.
Help us to live into the story of your redemption,
joining the cast of those called to love and serve in your name.
All glory be to you, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
