« on: January 20, 2011, 08:23:31 AM »


Praise the Lord!
Praise God in His sanctuary;
Praise Him in His mighty heavens.
Praise Him for His mighty acts;
Praise Him according to His excellent greatness.
Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet;
Praise Him with the harp and lyre.
Praise Him with the timbrel and dancing;
Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes.
Praise Him on the sounding cymbals;
Praise Him on the resounding cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord! (Psalm 150:1–6)

The Lord shall reign for ever and ever. (Exodus 15:18)

Pause to express your thoughts of praise and worship.


Heal me, O Lord, and I will be healed;
Save me, and I will be saved,
For You are my praise. (Jeremiah 17:14)

Ask the Spirit to search your heart and reveal any areas of unconfessed sin. Acknowledge these to the Lord and thank Him for His forgiveness.

Pause to add your own prayers for personal renewal.


May I be careful and watch myself closely lest I forget the things my eyes have seen or let them depart from my heart as long as I live. May I teach them to my children and to their children after them. (Deuteronomy 4:9)

Shout for joy, O heavens! Rejoice, O earth!
Break out into singing, O mountains!
For the Lord has comforted His people
And will have compassion on His afflicted. (Isaiah 49:13)

I will greatly rejoice in the Lord;
My soul will be joyful in my God.
For He has clothed me with garments of salvation
And arrayed me in a robe of righteousness,
As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments,
And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. (Isaiah 61:10)

Pause to offer your own expressions of thanksgiving.

Closing Prayer

The Lord will command His lovingkindness by day,
And His song will be in the night—
A prayer to the God of my life. (Psalm 42:8)

Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel,
Who alone does wonderful things.
And blessed be His glorious name forever;
May the whole earth be filled with His glory.
Amen and Amen. (Psalm 72:18–19)
