Where two or three are gathered

When God is in our midst, we are healed, not despised or rejected. He fills us with good things and brings deliverance! Grace and Alice showed me so much of God’s goodness in Kampala and even at the school dance competition at Togo. They danced and worshiped with their whole hearts, and were quick to include all of us! – Teresa #raiseurvoice #joyfuldancing

Psalm 22:19-31 English Standard Version (ESV)

19 

But you, O Lord, do not be far off!

    O you my help, come quickly to my aid!

20 

Deliver my soul from the sword,

    my precious life from the power of the dog!

21 

    Save me from the mouth of the lion!

You have rescued[a] me from the horns of the wild oxen!

22 

I will tell of your name to my brothers;

    in the midst of the congregation I will praise you:

23 

You who fear the Lord, praise him!

    All you offspring of Jacob, glorify him,

    and stand in awe of him, all you offspring of Israel!

24 

For he has not despised or abhorred

    the affliction of the afflicted,

and he has not hidden his face from him,

    but has heard, when he cried to him.

25 

From you comes my praise in the great congregation;

    my vows I will perform before those who fear him.

26 

The afflicted[b] shall eat and be satisfied;

    those who seek him shall praise the Lord!

    May your hearts live forever!

27 

All the ends of the earth shall remember

    and turn to the Lord,

and all the families of the nations

    shall worship before you.

28 

For kingship belongs to the Lord,

    and he rules over the nations.

29 

All the prosperous of the earth eat and worship;

    before him shall bow all who go down to the dust,

    even the one who could not keep himself alive.

30 

Posterity shall serve him;

    it shall be told of the Lord to the coming generation;

31 

they shall come and proclaim his righteousness to a people yet unborn,

    that he has done it.
