Regular Recitations Help Gratitude Echo

. at . Leave a comment

On this 21st Day of Thanks Living I choose to say Psalm 34:1-8 twice a day.

Recitation Challenge. Recently my pastor challenged the congregation to daily recite The Lord’s Prayer. He asked us to say it three times a day at 7am, 1pm, and 7pm. I have quite enjoyed this. Since I am reading it from a version I don’t normally read, I have to pay attention to the words.

Because I am reading it three times a day, the concepts and phrases frequently echo in my thinking without much conscious effort.

Regular times of thanks giving. I thought I could also do this with a prayer of thanksgiving or a psalm of thanksgiving. There are quite a few ideas on the internet. I finally settled on Psalm 34: 1-8 in the New Living Translation. Two times a day, I will say these verses at 10am and 10pm (just before bedtime).

Alarm the alarm. So that I don’t have to count on my memory to say the various things at various times, I set the alarm on my cell phone with the correct label (either The Lord’s Prayer or Psalm 34). And I took a photo of these two readings so that it is easy to find and read.

A friend saved The Lord’s Prayer to a voice memo app. I will see if I can do that as well.

  • Do you engage in regular, set times of prayer? How has that impacted you?
  • How about joining me in saying a prayer or a psalm of thanks giving at least once a day?
