We’re reading through, and with intentionality, praying through the Psalms during this school year. There are 150 Psalms, divided into 180 different readings. See this post for more info.
The audio file below is the entire episode for today. The text below is today’s prayer. I’m reading the Contemporary English Version of the Text, copyright 1995, by the American Bible Society.
God. Abba. Father.
Praise the Lord you His saints… whether angels above or those of us here below… together we shout praises to His holy name! He is the glorious One! You are the glorious One!
We honor you, the great I AM, Yahweh. We stand in awe of the beauty of your creation. You are holy.
We can hear your voice raging over the oceans. We can hear your voice in the thunderous clouds above. We proclaim that to hear your voice is like a symphony! At your command, trees break and mountains tremble. At your whisper the mighty cedars shatter and the peaks jump like wild colts. It’s such a beautiful word picture to see all creation eager to respond to your loving summons. Even the lightning flashes and the desert shakes. All in your temple say: “Glory to Yahweh, Glory to the Most High!”
You, Lord, are high and lifted up. Your reign from the Throne of Grace. You are in control of everything… the wind, the rain, the sun. You are even in control over pandemics and politics.
Thank you that we can count on you. We can trust you.
We are strong because of you. We can find the truest, purest peace at the end of your hand of blessing. We walk confidently in your strength and your peace.
Thank you Jesus!
