Here is today’s prayer from Psalm 146:
God. Abba. Father.
Hallelujah! Praise your name! As long as we have breath, we will sing songs of great acclaim for you are worthy. Teach us to trust you every moment of every day. Forgive us when we elevate family, friends, jobs, or even churches and their leaders over you. Our greatest hope and confidence in this life is in you, the One True God. You are the one who blesses us. Thank you.
You are the one who made the heavens and the earth. You always keep your promises to us. You are faithful to all. We thank you for seeing that justice is given to the poor and the wronged. You feed the hungry. You free us all from those things that hold us back. You help us all to see the people of this world as you see them. You lift us up when we stumble and fall. You defend the orphan and widow. You love those who worship you.
You will reign forever and ever. You are in control. You are the God of the universe. You care for the plans of governments and desire peace among the nations. Yet you also care for how things are going in our lives and among our families. We are humbled by your love for us.
We praise you. We proclaim our love to you.
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.
