Lent - Day 37: Naming Stars

Activity:
Names are a powerful thing.
Take a moment to consider your own name. 
Why were you given that name? 
What does your name mean to you?

Scripture:
Psalm 147:1-11
[1]   Praise the Lord!   
          How good it is to sing praises to our God;   
          for he is gracious, and a song of praise is fitting.   
[2]   The Lord builds up Jerusalem;   
          he gathers the outcasts of Israel.   
[3]   He heals the brokenhearted,   
          and binds up their wounds.   
[4]   He determines the number of the stars;   
          he gives to all of them their names.   
[5]   Great is our Lord, and abundant in power;   
          his understanding is beyond measure.   
[6]   The Lord lifts up the downtrodden;   
          he casts the wicked to the ground.

[7]   Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving;   
          make melody to our God on the lyre.   
[8]   He covers the heavens with clouds,   
          prepares rain for the earth,   
          makes grass grow on the hills.   
[9]   He gives to the animals their food,   
          and to the young ravens when they cry.   
[10]  His delight is not in the strength of the horse,   
          nor his pleasure in the speed of a runner;   
[11]  but the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him,   
          in those who hope in his steadfast love.
