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 King, we give praise to your glorious name every day, forever and ever.
You are great.
And you deserve our praise because of your immeasurable greatness.
We proclaim it here today.
But we ask that you would give us the opportunity to tell others of your greatness.
We ask that you would give us the desire to speak of your wondrous works, your awesome deeds, and mighty acts.
And let this not be limited only to our speech. Give us the discipline and the desire to meditate on the glorious splendor of your majesty and all you have done.
We have much to meditate on and speak of.
You are good and righteous, gracious and merciful.
You are powerful and kind.
You are faithful— faithful in everything you do.
We ask that you would continue to uphold us when we fall.
Please continue to raise us when we are bowed down.
We look to you for every provision and every satisfaction.
How good to know you hear our cry.
You are the God who is near us; the God who keeps watch over us.
We thank you for your grace.
Bless our worship this morning as we proclaim your greatness and your love.
We see the apex of your grace, greatness, and love in the work of your excellent Son.
May He be exalted in our worship today.
