Prayer of Praise (Drawing heavily from 1 Chronicles 16)

Jump to Comments

He is the Lord our God; His judgments are in all the earth. Remember His covenant forever, the word which He commanded, for a thousand generations. The covenant which He made with Abraham, And His oath to Isaac, And confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, To Israel for an everlasting covenant, fulfilled not merely for the land of Canaan, but for the entire world in God the Son who was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary.

Sing to the LORD, all the earth; Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.  Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.  For the LORD is great and greatly to be praised; He is also to be feared above all gods.  For all the gods of the peoples are idols, But the LORD made the heavens. Honor and majesty are before Him; Strength and gladness are in His place.

Give to the LORD, O families of the peoples,  Give to the LORD glory and strength.  Give to the LORD the glory due His name;  Bring an offering, and come before Him. Oh, worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before Him, all the earth. The world also is firmly established, It shall not be moved.

Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; And let them say among the nations, “The LORD reigns.”  Let the sea roar, and all its fullness; Let the field rejoice, and all that is in it.  Then the trees of the woods shall rejoice before the LORD, For He is coming to judge the earth.  Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good!  For His mercy endures forever.

For he fashioned dust from the earth into man, breathed life into his nostrils, and he became a living soul.  He fashioned the woman from his rib to be his help meet, creating both in the image of God.

You, O LORD, have confounded the wisdom of this world, humbling the proud and ordaining praise from the mouth of babes and suckling infants. You raise the poor out of the dust, and lift the needy out of the ash heap.  You, God Almighty, turn our mourning into dancing and our sorrow into joy!  Blessed be the LORD God of Israel From everlasting to everlasting!  From this time forth and forevermore, let everything that has breath praise the LORD in Jesus’ name through the Holy Spirit.  Amen.
