A Spring Song of Worship and Praise adapted from Psalm 147, 148, 149 and 150

Jehovah-Sabaoth – Lord of Host 

Praise the Lord! Praise God in His holy place! Praise Him in the heavens of His power! Praise Him for His incredible works! Praise Him for all His greatness! Praise Him with dancing and with loud clear sounds.  Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

It is so good to sing praises to my God.  It is pleasing to Him. My praise is so right. He heals my broken heart and heals my many sorrows. Great is my Lord, and mighty in power. His understanding has no end.  God favors those who fear Him and those who wait for His loving-kindness. His goodness brings a song to my lips. I will sing to my Lord daily with thankfulness and praise. His goodness makes me sing a new song and His wonderful name moves me to dance. The Lord is happy with me. He saved me and has made me beautiful. My pursuit is to be God-like and full of His joy and His honor. I will sing for joy and the high praises of God will be on my mouth. This is an honor for me to give my daily praise to my Lord and Savior.

God sends His Word to the earth. And His Word runs fast. God knows the number of the stars and names them all. He covers the heavens with clouds. He gives rain for the earth. He makes grass grow on the mountains.  He gives food to the animals, and to the young birds that cry. He gives snow like wool. He spreads ice like ashes.  He throws down His ice as hail stones. He sends out His Word and melts the hardened stones. He makes His wind blow and His waters flow. God spoke and His creation came into being. He has made it last forever and ever.

Praise the Lord. Praise the Lord from the heavens! Praise Him on high! Praise Him, all His angels! Praise Him, sun and moon! Praise Him, all you shining stars!  Praise Him, you highest heavens, and you waters above the heavens! Let all creation praise the name of the Lord!

A Spring Song of Worship and Praise adapted from Psalm 21 & 64

Jehovah-Mephalti – Lord my Deliverer

O Lord, I delight in Your strength! Yes, How great is my joy in Your saving power!

You bless me with the desires of my heart, keeping nothing from me.  For You meet me with gifts of good things, crowning my efforts with success. You give me life, a long life forever and ever. You make me glad with the joy of being with You.

 Please hear my voice when I pour out my heart. Keep my life safe from the fear of those who hate me. Hide me from the secret plans of the sinful and from the noise of those who do bad things. Their tongues are sharp like a sword. They use poison words like darts and shoot at me without blame. They are quick and are not afraid to hurt me.  For their heart and inside thoughts  are deep and pursue sinful things. These things rob me from the joy I feel when I am with You.

Because of Your loving kindness, I will not be shaken. I will pray as written in the book of Isaiah: 

 

 

 

 

“Rain down, you heavens, from above, And let the skies pour down righteousness;

Let the earth open, let them bring forth salvation, And let righteousness spring up together…”

 

 

For Your hand will find all who fight against You. Your right hand will find those who hate You. They will be made to trip and fall. Their own tongue is against them. But for the one who is right and good, they will be glad in You and will give You praise.  

O Lord, our deliverer, Your righteousness will prevail. In Your strength, I am glad! Yes, How great is my joy in Your saving power!

You continue to bless me with the desires of my heart, keeping nothing from me.  For You meet me with gifts of good things, crowning my efforts with success. You give me life, a long life forever and ever.  You make me glad with the joy of being with You.

A Spring Prayer of Petition and Blessing adapted from Psalm 24, 60 & 61

Jehovah-Gador Milchamah–The Lord powerful in war.

Lift up your heads, O gates. Lift them up, O doors that last forever, and the King of shining greatness will come in. Who is the King of shining greatness? The Lord of All. He is the King of shining greatness; One Who is mighty in battle.

Lord, this earth is Yours, and all that is in it, the world and all who live in it. For You have built it upon the seas. You have set it in the valleys where rivers flow and on the mountains where Your shining greatness is displayed. And who may stand in Your holy place? The one who has clean hands and a pure heart. The one who has not lifted up their soul to what is not true and has not made false promises. I will receive what is good from You, Lord, for what is right and good only comes from the One Who saves me.

 I will look for Your face, O God of Jacob. In Your shining greatness will I experience your strength and power. You are mighty in battle. Heal me and turn me toward You.  It is You who has made the land shake and have torn it open. Heal it where it is broken, for it shakes. I also have suffered hard things.  Save me with Your right hand and answer me so that I may be set free.

Hear my cry, O God. Listen to my prayer. I call to You from the end of the earth when my heart is weak. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

For You have been a safe place for me, a tower of strength where I am safe from those who fight against me. Let me live in Your tent forever. Let me be safe under the covering of Your wings. For You have heard my promises, O God. You have given me that which You give to those who fear Your name. Add days to my life so that I may sing thanks to Your name forever and keep my promises day by day.

Hear my cry, O God. Listen to my prayer. I call to You from the end of the earth when my heart is weak. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

A Spring Song of Worship and Praise adapted from Psalm 97 & 98

Jehovah-Adon Kal Ha’arets  “The Lord of all the Earth” 

The Lord rules.

Jehovah, You are King! Let the earth be full of joy with me. Let the many islands be glad. It is amazing to me that even the clouds and darkness surround You. My strength comes from the foundation of Your throne that is built upon what is right and fair.

Sing a brand new song to the Lord.

 I will sing from my heart as I know that You have done great things in my life. I have experienced Your saving power.  You are all that is good and right. Your loving kindness is beautiful to me.

All the earth calls out for joy to the Lord. Join me in song. Sing songs of great joy and praise. Sing praises to the Lord with all that you possess and with your voice.

Fire blazes out before You. Even Your lightning lights up the world. The earth sees and shakes. The mountains melt like a candle before You, the Lord of the whole earth. The heavens tell about how right and good You are. And everyone will see Your shining greatness.

 I will worship the one true God.

 I am full of joy. For You are the Lord Most High over all the earth. You are to be honored above all. I love you, Lord. This love for Your righteousness causes me to hate what is bad. For You keep safe the souls of Your faithful ones. Light is spread like seed for those who are right and good. I will be glad in You, Who is right and good. I will give thanks to Your Holy name today and every day of my life.

Sing a brand new song to the Lord.

 I will sing from my heart as I know that You have done great things in my life. I have experienced Your saving power. You are all that is good and right. Your loving kindness is beautiful to me.

All the earth, call out for joy to the Lord. Join me in song. Sing songs of great joy and praise. Sing praises to the Lord with all that you possess and with your voice.

You are my King and I will continue to sing of your greatness. The world joins with me in praise to You, mighty God. The seas’ waves make a loud noise, the rivers rushing waters clap and the mountains rise to praise You. You will return to put the world, and everyone in it, right.

Shout praises to the Lord.

A Spring Prayer of Petition and Blessing adapted from Psalm 20, 25 & 77

Jehovah-Hoshe’ah – Lord Saves

O God, Your ways are holy and Your timing is perfect. Is there any god as mighty as you? You are the God of great wonders!  You save me when I call Your mighty name.

I cry out to God; yes, I shout. Oh, that God would listen to me! When I was in deep trouble, I searched for the Lord. All night long I prayed with hands lifted toward heaven, but my soul was not comforted. I thought of God and I moaned, overwhelmed with longing for His help. This trouble still robs my joy and my sleep. I am too distressed even to pray! I think of the days when things were good; those days have long since ended, when my days were filled with joy and my nights were peaceful. I search my soul and ponder the difference now. Has the Lord rejected me forever? Will He never again allow goodness to be in my life? Is His unfailing love gone forever? Have His promises permanently failed? Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has He slammed the door on His compassion? Where is He?

But then I recall all You have done, O Lord. I remember Your wonderful deeds and have realized that I have moved from Your presence. You, Lord, are always near.  I will constantly keep You in my thoughts. I will not stop thinking about Your mighty works.

Your ways are holy. You are the God of great wonders!

Please answer me today in my hour of need! May You, the God of Jacob, keep me safe. May You send me help and give me strength. Grant me the desire of my heart according to Your riches and glory and make all my plans go well according to Your will in my life. I will sing for joy when You answer. In Your name, I will lift up my hands in praise.  May You grant me all that I need.

Now I know that You save Your chosen one. You answer me from Your holy heaven, with the saving power of Your right hand. I will trust in Your name, my God. Your ways are holy. You are the God of great wonders!

Good and right are You. You teach sinners in Your ways. You lead those without pride into what is right, and teach them Your way. All Your paths are loving and true for those who keep Your agreement and keep Your Laws. For the good of Your name, O Lord, forgive my sin, even as big as it is.

I lift up my soul to You, O Lord. I trust in You. Show me Your ways.  Teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me. For You are the God Who saves me. I wait for You all day long. Keep me strong, remembering to bless with Your loving kindness. Please do not remember my sins from when I was young, or my sinful ways.

By Your loving kindness remember me, for You are good.

The faithful ones who fear You will be taught in the way they should choose. Their soul will live a rich life and their children will be given the land. Let that be in my life, Lord. Turn to me and show me Your loving kindness. Forgive all my sins.

Keep me safe, save me and set me free. Let what is good and what is right keep my mind stayed on these things, because I wait for You. Your ways are holy. You are the God of great wonders!

A Spring Song of Worship and Praise adapted from Psalm 93 & 99

Jehovah Hamelech– God Is King.

God, You are my King. You rule with great power and strength. Your heavenly throne is set up from long ago and is eternal. You have always been and forever will be.

Strength is found in You, Lord. All honor and glory are Yours, my Lord and my God. I will worship on my knees.  For You alone are holy!

I have stood at the waters edge and watched the fierce tide rush in. I have heard the thunder of the angry sea and felt the power of its relentless waves. But mightier than the violent raging seas, mightier than the breakers on the shore— You above are mightier than these! You are Lord on high. You are unshakeable. Your Word is very sure. And Your Kingdom is perfect in every way as it lasts forever.

Strength is found in You, Lord. All honor and glory are Yours, my Lord and my God. I will worship on my knees. For You alone are holy!

I fear Your holy name, the One who sits on His throne above the angels. Let the earth shake! Lord, You are great and to be honored above all people. I will praise Your great name.  I will honor you with fear and respect because You alone are holy!

Strength is found in You, Lord. All honor and glory are Yours, my Lord and my God. I will worship on my knees. For You alone are holy!

I will do as the saints of the Old Testament, who called on Your name. They called upon you, Lord, and You answered them. They kept Your Word and the Law that You gave them. You answered them. You were a forgiving God to them. I will be faithful as the saints of old and honor you, the Lord our God. I will worship lifting up Your Name on high from the mountains tops. You are the Lord our God who is holy!

A Spring Prayer of Petition and Blessing adapted from Psalm 40, 41 & 43

 Heavenly Father, do not wait. You are my Help and the One Who sets me free. 

How happy is the one who has made the Lord their trust. 

Many are the great works You have done. No one can compare with You! If I were to speak of all You have done and tell of Your good deeds, there would be too many to number. I have shared the good news about what is right and good. I have never closed my lips, O Lord.  I have not hidden Your righteousness and goodness in my heart. I have spoken about how faithful You are and about Your saving power. I have not hidden Your loving kindness and Your truth. I am happy to do Your will. Your Word lives within my heart.

You are my Help and the One Who sets me free.

 I trust You and have come to You with my pain and fears. Have loving kindness for me. Raise me up and set me beside You forever. You do not answer quickly and I know that I am impatient, but I will not give up on waiting for You. O Lord, have loving kindness for me. Heal my soul for a friend of mine whom I trusted has turned against me. You, however, have turned to me and have heard my cry. Even though I have sinned and have not handled my trouble well, I know You will bring me up out of turmoil and despair. You have faithfully set me on a rock, making my feet sure. You put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise. I sing for You because all hope is in You. O Lord, Your compassion stays with me. Your loving kindness and Your truth always keep me satisfied. Be pleased to save me. Hurry and help me. Let all who look for You experience Your joy. May they also be glad in You. Because I am in need, think of me.

Please do not wait. You are my help and the One Who sets me free.

Stand by me, O God, and speak in my favor against a sinful nation. Save me from the lying and sinful man. For You are the God of my strength. Send out Your light and Your truth. Let them lead me. Let them bring me to Your holy hill and to the places where You live. Then I will kneel before Your altar, God of my joy, and I will praise You. Honor be to You, the God of Israel, forever and ever!

Let it be so for You are my hope and the One Who sets me free. I will praise You, my help and my God.
