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.
We sing praises and applaud your greatness, mighty God! We shout, “Joy to the king of Kings!”
You, Yahweh, are the One True God. You are the Most High. You rule the earth. You have put every nation under your authority. Then you give the power to rule to your chosen people, those who call you Father and submit to your Lordship. You have given us a great inheritance. You have given the people of Israel their Promised Land.
We join with believers around the world in singing praise to you as you sit high on your great Throne of peace and grace. We worship you and only you today. We thank you for the deliverance from pestilence and the outcomes of elections. Everything and everyone will bow down to worship you. Heaven and nature proclaim your prominence over the birds of the air, the fish in the sea, man and woman on earth. You are greater than governments and economies, universities and cultural entertainment.
You rule the world! Your Throne is holy. Your judgements are just. One day, everyone on earth will worship at your feet. You are to be praised above all else.
You are the Mighty God. You are the Comforting Holy Spirit. You are the grace of Jesus. And it is in His name we pray.
