A Fall Song of Worship and Praise adapted from Psalm 89

Jehovah-Yasha 

The Lord my Savior 

 

psalm-89

Your love, God, is my song, and I will sing it!

 I will forever speak of Your faithfulness. I will forever tell the story of Your love.  I will rejoice all day long in Your wonderful reputation and in Your perfect righteousness. Your love will be built up in me forever and ever.

O God, let the heavens praise Your wonderful ways.

 Let the choir of angels sing anthems to Your faithfulness! You are honored in the heavens, Lord God of all, powerful Lord. The evidence of Your faithfulness is all around. You rule the rising sea; its waves rise and You quiet them. The heavens are Yours.  The earth is Yours. You made everything that I can see and more.  You have made it all from nothing. Your hand is powerful.

Your throne, O Lord, is founded on two strong pillars: justice and righteousness. These pillars are my strength.  Mercy and truth walk before You.  Your divine favor is my treasure. You are my Father, my God and the Rock that continues to save me.

Your love, God, is my song and I will never stop singing it from Your holy mountains.

Jehovah-Shalom –Prince of Peace – Isaiah 9:6

I love the Lord, because He has heard my voice and my supplications.  He has inclined His ear to me, therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live.

Unless the Lord builds the house, your work is for nothing.

Unless the Lord watches over the city, those who watch over it stay awake for nothing.

You rise up early, go to bed late and work hard for your food, all for nothing.                                                                         For the Lord gives to His loved ones even while they sleep.

May you have His peace!

Prosperity and joy are given to those who fear the Lord—all who follow His ways!

You will enjoy the fruit of your labor. How joyful and prosperous you will be!

You will be like a fruitful grapevine, flourishing within your home.

Your children will be like vigorous young olive trees as they sit around your table.

That is the Lord’s blessing for those who fear Him.                            

 May you have His peace!

Our children are a gift from the Lord. They are truly a special reward. The happiness they bring to our homes is one of many blessings.

May the Lord continually bless you. May you prosper as long as you live. May you live to enjoy your grandchildren.  May you have His peace!

 Jehovah-Misqabbi – Lord my High Tower      

 Song of Thanks for Being Kept Safe

The Lord is my strength, my rock and my safe place. He is the One Who takes me out of trouble. My God is my rock, in Whom I am safe. He is my safe covering, my saving strength and my strong tower. I call to the Lord, Who has the right to be praised and I am saved from those who hate me.  I call to the Lord in my trouble. I cry to God for help. He hears my voice from His holy house. My cry for help reaches His ears.

Lord, You give me a safe place, because You are pleased with me. You live in me! How great is my Rock! Praise be to the You, Lord, Who saves me!

Before Him I was without blame. And I have kept myself from sin. So the Lord has paid me back for being right with Him, and for my hands being clean in His eyes. To the faithful, He shows Himself faithful. To those without blame, He shows Himself blameless. With the pure, He shows Himself pure. He makes my lamp bright. The Lord my God lights my darkness. With my God I can jump over a wall.

Lord, You give me a safe place, because You are pleased with me. You live in me! How great is my Rock! Praise be to You, O Lord, Who saves me!

Your way is perfect. You are a covering for all who go to You. This blessed covering is a safe place. You also give me the covering that saves me. Your right hand holds me up. Your care makes me great. You make the road wide for my steps and my feet have not tripped.

 Lord, You live in me! How great is my Rock! Praise be to You, Who saves me! Yes, You lift me above those who rise up against me. You save me from those who want to hurt me.  So I will give thanks to You, the Lord among the nations. And I will sing praises to Your name as You show loving kindness.

Oh! Let the heavens be glad and let the earth be full of joy. Let the sea and all that is in it make a loud noise. Let the fields and all that is in them be full of joy. Then, all the trees of the land will sing for joy before You. I am so glad!  You, O Lord, my safe covering, my saving strength and my strong tower, are coming.

Prayer of the Sinner

O God, hurry to take me out of trouble. Hurry to help me!

Take away my wrongdoing because of the greatness of Your loving pity. Wash me inside and out from my wrongdoing and make me clean from my sin. For I know my wrongdoing and my sin is always in front of me. I have sinned against You and You only. I have done what is sinful in Your eyes. You are always right when You speak, and fair when You judge.Prayer

O God, take away my sin and cleanse me.

Wash me and I will be whiter than snow. Make me joyful and happy. Favor me because of Your loving kindness. Let me always look for You. Let me be glad in You. For I long to experience the full joy of Your forgiveness.

I was born in sin and lived in sin from my very beginning.  Your desire is for truth to be rooted deep within my heart and for me to know wisdom in the hidden part. But I am poor and in need.

Hurry to me, O God! You are my Help and the One Who takes me out of trouble. O Lord, do not wait.

Save me, for the waters have almost taken my life.  I have come into deep waters where floods come over me.  I have gone down into the deep mud and there is no place to put my feet. I have cried until I am tired. My mouth is dry. My eyes are weak. You know how foolish I am. My sins are not hidden from You.

Answer me with Your saving truth in Your great loving-kindness, O God. Take me out of the mud and do not let me go down again. Guard me from those who hate me. Pluck me from the floodwaters and keep them from covering me. Do not let the sea swallow me up. Do not let the deep hole close its mouth over me. Answer me, O Lord, for Your loving-kindness is good. I am suffering and in pain. Save me and set me up on high.  I will praise Your name with song and I will give You great honor with much thanks.

prayer 2 May heaven, earth, the seas and all the things that move in them give thanks to You.

You answer me in the way that is right and good. It’s Your forgiveness and salvation I seek. You are the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas. You have built the mountains by Your strength. You are dressed with power. You quiet the storm of the seas, the sound of its waves and the noise of the people. You make morning and evening call out for joy. It is Your great works that make all stand in awe.

O God, take away my sin and cleanse me. Wash me and I will be whiter than snow. Make me joyful and happy. Favor me because of Your loving-kindness. Let me always look for You. Let me be glad in You. For I long to experience the full joy of Your forgiveness.

Jehovah-’Ez-Lami –Lord my Strength and my Song.

Be glad in the Lord and be full of joy all you who are right with God. Sing for joy all you who are pure in heart for The Lord is our strength and safe cover.

Dear heavenly Father, the heavens tell of Your greatness and their vastness show the work of Your hand. Day to day, Your creation speaks of Your greatness as it rises from one end of the heavens to the other.

You are faithful to forgive the guilt of my sin. You are my hiding place. The place where I am safe and where I gain strength.  Your songs of freedom surround me.  Because I trust in You, I am embraced by Your loving-kindness.

Your Word is perfect, giving new strength to every soul. Your Word is right, giving joy to the heart. Your Word is pure, giving light to the eyes. The fear of You, O Lord is pure, lasting forever. You are always true and right in how You judge. Your Word is worth more than gold.

In obeying and choosing to live Your way, there is great reward. So please forgive my sins that I do not see. And keep me from sinning as I go my way. Do not let any sins rule over me. Let the words of my mouth and the desires of my heart be pleasing in Your eyes, O Lord, my Rock and the One Who saves me.

You are faithful to forgive the guilt of my sin. You are my hiding place. The place where I am safe and where I gain strength.  Your songs of freedom surround me.  Because I trust in You, I am embraced by Your loving-kindness.

Be glad in the Lord and be full of joy all you who are right with God. Sing for joy all you who are pure in heart for The Lord is our strength and safe cover.

A Fall Prayer of Petition and Blessing adapted from Psalm 5, 14, 52, 53 & 130

 

       Jehovah-Go’el –  The Lord our Redeemer.

Hear my words, O Lord.

In the morning, O Lord, You will hear my voice.  Think about my crying.  Hear my cry for help, my King and my God. For I pray to you. In the morning I will lay my prayers before You and will look up for You are my Redeemer.

Hear my words, O Lord.

You are not a God Who is pleased with what is bad. The sinful cannot be with You. The proud cannot stand before You. You hate all who do wrong and those who lie.

Will those who sin never learn? They eat up people like they eat up bread. They do not call on Your name.  They live in much fear.

 Hear my words, O Lord.

 

My heart is heavy for those who choose to live foolishly as if there is no 

 

God. Their ways are sinful and they continue to do bad things. There is no one who does good.

 God, You look down from heaven at us to see if there is anyone who understands and looks for You.  And we have all turned back to sin.

Is there no one who does good, not even one?  Do those who sin have understanding? This is why they do not call upon You? Why do we take pride in wrongdoing when we know Your loving kindness lasts all day long?

 Our tongue makes plans to destroy like a sharp knife.  We love what is bad more than what is good and we speak lies more than we speak the truth. We love words that destroy.  There we are, in much fear, when there is nothing to be afraid of.  Instead, we are put to shame because You have turned away from us.

Jehovah-M’gaddishcem – Lord my Sanctifier

 I am Jehovah who makes you holy. Exodus 31:13b (TLB)

 

Song of Praise to the Lord my Sanctifier

 

The heavens were made by the Word of the Lord. All the stars were made by the breath of His mouth.  He gathers the waters of the sea together as in a bag. He places the waters in storehouses.  Let all the earth fear the Lord. Let all the people of the world honor Him. For He spoke, and it was done. He spoke with strong words, and it stood strong.  The Lord brings the plans of nations to nothing. He wrecks the plans of the people but the plans of the Lord stand forever. The plans of His heart stand through the future of all people.

Happy am I for He has chosen me for His own. My tongue will tell about how right and good God is, and about His praise all day long. My soul will be happy and full of joy because He did not give up on me.

But, My sin speaks loudly.  Within my heart, I still hold fast to sin. I lose fear of my God. In my own eyes, I make much of myself. I hate the sin in my life. My words are false. I lie to myself.                                    I have stopped being wise and doing good. My plans are for wrongdoing and my path is not good.

 Why do I get such pleasure in my sin? Why do I not hate what is bad?

I put my head down in sorrow; You have seen it, O Lord. Do not keep quiet. O Lord, do not be far from me. Come and help me. Fight for me, my God and my Lord. Say what is right or wrong with me, O Lord my God, because You are right and good. Put in me a desire to tell about how right and good You are, and a longing to praise You all day long.  All that I am, may it be a reflection of Your holiness.

O Lord, Your loving kindness goes to the heavens. You are as faithful as the sky is high. You are as right and good as mountains are big. When You judge, You are as fair as a sea is deep.  My life came from You. In Your light I see light.  Keep on giving Your loving kindness to me. Do not give up on me.  Do not let the foot of pride come near me. Let Your presence be upon me as a reflection of Your holiness.

 

I will sing for joy and praise Your holy name with a new song. You are faithful and good to me. My tongue will tell about how right and good You are and about Your praise all day long. My soul will be happy and full of joy because You did not give up on me. Let Your presence stay with me.

Jehovah-Ganan – The Lord Our Defense

Come quickly, Lord!

For God-like people are here no more. The faithful can no longer be seen. So many lies are spoken. Their lips speak with sweet-sounding words that are not true.

I will run for dear life straight into Your arms. You are my only defense. You haven’t moved and are always the same. Your holy address hasn’t changed. As always, Your eyes take everything in, unblinking, examining inside and out, not missing a thing. You test the good and the bad alike; if anyone cheats, You are outraged. Fail Your test and a person is out, out in a hail of firestones, drinking from a canteen filled with hot desert wind.

praise11Your business is putting things right; You love setting us straight. Once we’re standing tall, we can look You straight in the eye.

O Lord, You will keep us. You will keep us safe forever from the people of this day.

I choose to put my trust in Your loving kindness. My heart will be full of joy because You will save me.  I will sing to You because You have been good to me. In You, I am safe.

Oh, Lord, Your throne is in heaven.

Your eyes see as You test everyone. You test and prove those who are right and good and those who are sinful and Your soul hates the one who loves to hurt others.

For You, Oh Lord, love what is right and good.

Those who are right with You will see Your face and hear Your Words that are pure, like silver. O Lord, our Defender, keep us in Your loving care. 

Keep us safe forever from the people of this day. Amen

Jehovah-‘Immeku “Lord is With You”

Judges 6:12

Yeah for Sunday! I was so glad when they said to me, “Let us go into the house of the Lord.”  Praise be to the Lord.

praising_god1If the Lord had not been on my side when people came against me, they would have swallowed me alive. The flood of critics would have engulfed me, tormented me and swept me away in the raging waters of their anger. I have escaped like a bird, but not by my strength.  My help is in the name of the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth

Unto You, O Lord, I lift up my eyes to the heavens.

As the eyes of a servant look to the hand of her master and the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, so my eyes stay on You, my God, where I find strength, mercy and comfort. Continue to have mercy on me, O Lord. I still struggle. I am exceedingly filled with contempt and anger to those who find joy in tormenting me. I am desperate for Your strength, Your mercy and Your comfort.

I pray for peace to calm me. Let me prosper for I love you. Let peace rain within the walls of my home and prosperity come to the work of my hand. I will lift up my eyes to the hills—From whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. You, O Lord, are my keeper; You are my shade. The sun will not strike me by day, nor the moon by night. You will preserve me from all evil; You will preserve my soul. You will preserve my going out and my coming in from this time forth, and even forevermore.

Yeah for Sunday! I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go into the house of the Lord.”

Jehovah-Nissi – Banner.

 I will give honor and thanks to the Lord. 

I will lift up my hands to the holy place and give thanks to the Lord.  May the Lord bring good to me for He is the One Who made heaven and earth. When I am awake, I am still with Him. He looks through me and knows my heart, tries me and knows my thoughts.  He sees any sinful way in me and leads me in the way that lasts forever.

O Lord, You have looked through me and have known me.

You know when I sit down and when I get up. You understand my thoughts from far away.  You look over me as I walk my path and as I lay down. You know all my ways very well.

Even before I speak a word, O Lord, You know it all.

You have closed me in from behind as well as in front. You img_2302have laid Your hand upon me. All You know is too great for me. It is too much for me to understand. For You made the parts inside me. You put me together inside my mother. I will give thanks to You, for the greatness of the way I was made brings fear. Your works are great and my soul knows it very well. Your eyes saw me before I was put together. And all the days of my life were written in Your book before any of them came to be.

Your thoughts are of great worth to me, O God.

How many there are!  If I could number them, there would be more than all the sands of the earth.

 I will give honor and thanks to the Lord. I will lift up my hands to the holy place and give thanks to the Lord. May the Lord bring good to me for He is the One Who made heaven and earth. When I am awake, I am still with Him. He looks through me and knows my heart, tries me and knows my thoughts.  He sees any sinful way in me and leads me in the way that lasts forever.

For the Lord has chosen me. This is my resting place forever; here I will dwell, for I have desired it. My God will abundantly bless and will satisfy. I will shout for joy for the Lord has chosen me.
