A Summer Song of Worship and Praise adapted from Psalm 46 & 104

Jehovah-Bara – The Everlasting God, the Lord, Creator of the ends of the earth

Come and see the works of the Lord. Be quiet and know that I am God.  I will be honored in the earth. The Lord of All is with us.

 

Praise the Lord, O my soul!Come and see the works of the Lord. Be quiet and know that He is God. He will be honored among the nations. He will be honored in the earth. The Lord of All is with me.

God has set the earth in its place so that it will stay that way forever. He covered it with the sea and made the waters stand above the mountains. The waters left at His strong words. They dispersed quickly at the sound of His thunder. The mountains rose up and the valleys came down to the place that He made for them. God set a place that they may not pass over. The waters will never cover the earth again and God made this promise for me.

God sent rivers into the valleys to flow between the mountains, giving water to all the animals of the field and the birds of the sky. He waters the mountains from His heavenly home and the earth is filled with the fruit of His works. And He did this all for me.

Come and see the works of the Lord. Be quiet and know that He is God.  He will be honored in the earth. The Lord of All is with me.

Oh yes, God brings grain from the land and wine to make people happy. As their faces glow with health, they are a people well fed and hearty. God’s trees are well watered. Birds build their nests in those trees; mountain goats climb about the cliffs; badgers burrow among the rocks. The moon keeps track of the seasons and the sun is in charge of each day. God makes darkness and it becomes night so all the wild animals among the trees can venture out. The deep, wide sea is brimming with fish past counting, and He did this all for me.

Come and see the works of the Lord. Be quiet and know that He is God.  He will be honored in the earth. The Lord of All is with me.

What a wildly wonderful world God has made!  He made it all for me, with wisdom at His side.  May His shining greatness last forever. I will sing to the Lord all my life. I will sing praise to Him as long as I live.  May the words of my heart be pleasing to Him. As for me, I will be glad in the Lord and I am so thankful. Let everything inside me Praise the Lord for He did this all for me.

Jehovah-Rophe – Healer

He was wounded for our transgressions, The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5

Lord my God, be kind to me because of Your name. For Your loving kindness is better than life.

 

Take me out of this trouble. For I am in need and my heart is hurting.  My knees are weak for I have not eaten for days and my body has lost weight. No one understands my trouble. People laugh at me. They look at me and shake their heads. They think there is no hope for me.

Lord my God, be kind to me because of Your name. For Your loving kindness is better than life.

Help me! Save me! Let those who speak against me know that my help is from Your hand alone. Let this bring hope to them. When bad things happen to them, they will know that You are the One that makes good things happen. I will look for You with all my heart and strength. My soul is thirsty for You. My flesh is weak, wanting You in a dry and tired land where there is no water.

I have seen You in the holy place. I have seen Your power and Your shining greatness. 

I will be full of joy for the goodness that You have shown me. I will give thanks to You in a loud voice and I will praise You. My lips will praise You because Your loving kindness is better than life.

I will give honor to You as long as I live. I will lift up my hands in Your name. My soul will be filled as with rich foods and my mouth will praise You with lips of joy.

Song of Praise and Thanks to God

worship-2

I will honor the Lord for His glory and His strength. I will honor the Lord for the glory of His name, worshipping Him in the splendor of His holiness. God keeps me alive and keeps my feet on solid ground. He has tested me, making me pure as silver. He has blessed me with much more than I could ever need. In response to His goodness, I will come into His house with my offering, returning a portion of what He has given to me.

 My heart’s desire is to honor and thank my Lord.

The Lord is faithful to give me strength when in need. He will keep me alive and will keep my feet on solid ground. The Lord will bless me with peace. Praise the Lord God, Who alone does wonderful things. Praise His glorious name forever!  I will tell you what He has done for me. I will cry out to Him with my mouth and praise Him with my voice. I am aware that the Lord will not hear me if I hold on to the sin in my heart.  So I daily ask forgiveness to be sure that God has heard. He has listened to my prayer.

 My heart’s desire is to honor and thank You, my God.

rain-on-a-sunny-day A Summer Prayer Expressing A Desire for God’s House

How beautiful are the places where You live, O Lord of all! Happy are those who live in Your house! Happy and thankful are those who find strength in You. You, Lord God, are my sun and my safe covering. You give favor and honor. You hold back nothing good from those who walk in the way that is right. O Lord of all, how happy are those who trust in You!

For surely a day in Your house is better than a thousand elsewhere.

Send Your fresh rain. Make it spring for me, O Lord of all, my King and my God.

My soul wants and even becomes weak wanting to be in Your house. My heart and my flesh sing for joy to You, the living God. O Lord God of all, hear my prayer and look upon the face of Your anointed one. I choose to be in Your presence above any worldly honor. God, protect me and show me Your favor for I desire to experience Your goodness today.

For a day in Your house is truly better than a thousand elsewhere.

Jehovah-Kanna – Lord Jealous

 

A Song of Praise:  I must worship no other gods, but only Jehovah, for He is a God who claims absolute loyalty and exclusive devotion. Exodus 34:14 (TLB)  

With a thankful heart, I will sing loudly and joyfully to the Rock Who saved me. With delight, I will make a sound of joy to Him through song. For the Lord is a great God, and the great King above all gods. The deepest places of the earth are in His hands and the tops of the mountains belong to Him. The sea is His and His hands made the dry land. He made it all for my enjoyment.

For God is the Creator of all good things and I am in awe of His beautiful creations.

With a grateful heart, I bow down in worship. Daily I will humble myself, getting down on my knees before the Lord to worship the One who made me. For He is our God and we are the people of His field and the sheep of His hand.

If you hear His voice today, do not let your heart become hard.  Sing a joyous, thankful song to Him, the God of our salvation. For the Lord is a great God, and the great King above all gods

A Prayer for the Nation

Nation

O Shepherd of Israel. The One Who sits on Your heavenly throne above the angels, let Your light shine!  Stir up Your power and come to save us!

O Lord, You showed favor to Your land. It has produced its fruit. You have forgiven the sins of Your people. You have covered all their sin.

O God of all, show us Your loving kindness and save us. Bring us back to life again so that Your people may be happy in You.

Your saving power is near those who fear You, so Your shining greatness may live in the land. Loving kindness and truth have met together. Peace and what is good and true have kissed each other. Truth comes up from the earth.  From heaven comes all goodness.

 

Yes, Lord, You will give what is good and our land will give its fruit. What is right and good will go before You and make a way for Your steps.

O God of all, I beg Your return. Look down from heaven and see us. Give us new life again and we will call on Your name.

Please bring us back to You. Make Your face shine upon us and grace us with Your presence that we may receive our salvation. Show Your loving kindness toward us and bring good into our lives once again. May Your way be known on the earth and Your saving power among all nations.

May the people praise You, O God. May the nations be glad and sing for joy. For You will be fair when You judge the people and rule the nations of the earth. May the people praise You.

O God of all, bring us back to You. Make Your face shine upon us and grant us our salvation so that we may have life again.

A Summer Song of Worship and Praise adapted from Psalm 100

 Jehovah – The Lord, God All-powerful – Exodus 6:2

Heavenly Father, You are my daily celebration. I will invite everyone to join me as I stand to my feet and shout with joy! Serving You, Lord, brings a smile to my face and the gift of laughter to my soul. And as I gladly serve You, I will sing songs of joy as I reflect upon the truth that You are God to all people. It is You, Lord, who made us, not us. We are Your people and the sheep of Your field.psalm 100

Each day, as I enter Your gates and come into Your holy place, I will praise You and give thanks. I will give honor to Your Holy name in everything I do.

God, You are so good to me. I am comforted in knowing that Your loving kindness lasts forever. You are faithful to me and to my family.

I give You all my praise because You are every joy, every triumph and every good thing in my life. You are Jehovah, the Lord, God all-powerful.
