A Fall Prayer of Petition and Blessing adapted from Psalm 132, 134 & 139

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.
