Sunday Prayer (Psalm 138)

by | Jan 17, 2021 | Sunday Prayer | 1 comment

This is the latest in the series of corporate prayers for Sunday worship that I’m writing from the Psalms, working through them in reverse order.

Our God and heavenly Father, we are thankful we can approach you boldly as your children because of the finished work of Christ. 

We also approach you with humility as your worshippers. 

We are thankful for your goodness towards us. What love you have shown! What truth you have revealed! What help and strength you have provided!

We praise you as the God of heaven—our glorious God. 

We bow our hearts before you in reverence. 

We thank you for all that you are—for all that you have revealed yourself to be. 

We are grateful for your love and truth. 

You have provided our salvation. You answer our prayers. You give us strength.

You deserve all glory. All exaltation belongs to you for your wonderful ways and promises and for your care for us.

How comforting it is to know that no matter how thick the danger, no matter the trouble or the enemy, You will deliver us. 

You have delivered us from eternal death. We need not fear with you as our God, our God whom we trust to fulfill your purpose for us. 

Your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. 

We know you will not forsake us. 

Thank you for your faithful love.
