Praise Your Name

Lord,

I praise your Name,

I bless your Name from this moment

and forever on,

from the sun’s rising to setting,

your Name will be praised.

You are high above all the earth,

your majesty fills the heavens,

there’s none like you

enthroned on the highest seat.

You humble yourself,

stoop down,

to consider the heavens and the earth.

You lift my head up,

caring for my heart,

I will not fear or be anxious,

but cast all my cares on you.

Thank you and I praise you Lord.

Amen.

My Keeper

Lord,

you’re here, you’re with me,

and I lift my eyes from the tangled mess inside,

and look to you.

Forgive me for empowering my worries,

when my help comes from you

who created the universe,

the sun, moon, and stars,

the heavens and the earth.

Thank you Lord that you set your angels beside me,

you won’t allow my foot to stumble and fall,

you are always watchful,

never turning away,

you’re eyes, without slumber,

are always upon me.

Lord, you are my guardian,

my keeper, my protector,

your presence is a cover and shade over my head.

Not even the sun will strike me by day,

or the moon at night,

you guard me from all evil,

you hold my life.

Wherever I step, wherever I go,

Lord you will protect me.

From now into eternity,

I am yours.

Amen.

First Love

Lord,

thank you for your Spirit

that infuses me with revelation of who you are,

an awareness of your presence,

how real you are.

I am but dust without you,

dry, weary, devoid of life,

and I praise you for saving me to life,

life abundant, eternal in you.

Help me Lord.

Topple the idols in my heart,

sear away the distractions, busyness,

all of my excuses for sin

that all lead to death.

Restore my heart to first love,

that when you come again soon,

I’ll be watching, waiting, looking for you

with clear eyes and spirit, a pure heart,

and my cup will overflow,

my gladness and joy fulfilled

to see you face to face,

taken up in the clouds,

in a blink of an eye,

in the midst of all rejoicing lovers

surrounding the King of kings.

Have your way in me,

enable me by your Spirit and grace

to work out my faith with fear and trembling,

let your perfect love cast out all fear,

loving you in heart and obedience,

going boldly where you lead and call,

standing firm in faith,

faithful to the end

and shining your light.

Make it so Lord,

I bless you.

Amen.

Love Like You

Abba,

holy and righteous,

powerful and awesome,

I remember love

that you loved us

and sent your Son,

crushed Him to be the satisfying offering

for all the sins of the world.

Without you Lord, I’m nothing,

a skeleton of failures, brokenness, and selfishnes

resurrected to spirit and life only by your power.

Empower me by your Spirit and life,

bring your strength to the end of my strength

let me walk in your light,

decreeing my righteousness bought by your blood,

shaming the enemy’s whispers and lies,

exalting you, all that you’ve done

by my being and words

that I may be a faithful witness unto you —

let your heartbeat and life beat through mine,

enable me to arise,

a force of your grace

ablaze in holiness and righteousness,

to be different and other,

salt and light,

that you would draw many to you,

imbue me with your supernatural love

to love as you do,

loving my brother and sister,

loving my enemies

that the world would see you.

Lord, you alone are worthy,

and I pray that my life would glorify you.

Amen.

The Fear Of The Lord Is Clean

Abba,

Holy are you,

glorious in your throne room of grace,

active, concerned, moving

nations and kings in alignment with your purposes.

I praise you for your promises,

time coming into its fullness

your prophetic word fulfilled

and your Son coming into His rightful place.

King of kings and Lord of lords,

make me ready.

I ask you for the spirit of the fear of the Lord

to cleanse my soul,

expose and deliver me from habitual sin,

awaken me from apathy and complacency,

refining fire

come upon on my heart and mind,

that my spirit would remain

brightly burning, united with you.

Reorient me to your priorities,

being alert and sober-minded to pray,

to steward and spend my gifts and talents

for your kingdom, to glorify your Name,

not my own,

to be wise and shrewd as a snake,

gentle as a dove,

stepping into your love,

that my love would abound still more and more

in knowledge, depth of discernment, and insight,

making the most of this time left that you’ve given me,

to fulfill your purpose upon my life.

I long to hear you say

“Well done good and faithful servant.”

Let it be so Abba,

have your way in me.

You alone are worthy,

I bless you.

Amen.

My Everything

Lord,

You are the only Way, the Truth, and the Life,

the one way of salvation,

reigning over all the heavens and the earth,

the King of kings and the Lord of lords,

Captain over every situation,

in charge, in control,

you’ve never let me go.

Lord have my heart,

my hands are open,

take it all,

I surrender all to you,

be my everything.

In your Person, your presence, your life,

I’m saved, delivered in my trusting,

I see in my believing,

for you are all this broken heart ever needed.

I have no lack in you,

desperation has only drawn me closer to you.

Nothing can separate me from your love,

I praise you from a heart rich and full,

and I will sing my hallelujah to you today,

grateful for all you have done.

Amen.

My Lord

My Lord,

I surrender to your waves of mercy,

sinking deep, allowing your love to penetrate every cell of my body.

I can’t believe you would take me back,

after my failures, my sin, my betrayal of you,

the nails I put in your hands and feet,

the way I mocked and scorned you,

how hard and cold my heart was to your suffering.

I don’t understand how you receive me back again and again,

this prodigal,

with wide open arms,

putting your ring on my finger,

your robe on my back,

telling me I am yours,

that you chose me and want me,

and I belong to you.

I can’t understand your love in my intellect,

yet you pursue me, you haven’t let me go.

You are kind, gentle, and good,

holy, pure, with no guile,

strong, tender, compassionate,

humble, gracious, and patient.

You keep no record of my wrongs,

your heart is always soft towards me,

open, merciful, you never hold back.

I bless you Lord

there’s none that loves like you,

you alone are God,

perfect in love,

beautiful, glorious,

take this small, broken heart,

make it wholly yours,

I give myself to you.

Amen.

Comfort In The Morning

Lord,

when I’m overwhelmed and cannot see the light,

when others mock your presence and discourage my trust,

I know that your hand covers me,

that I’m under the darkness and shelter of your wings.

You are my shield and my refuge.

I am nothing, yet Your Spirit and presence within are my glory,

your love cherishes, honors, and values me.

I cry out loud to you,

in wonder that you would receive my words, my voice,

and I weep as you turn your ear,

and answer from your holy mountain.

My sleep is sweet,

Lord you sustain my breath,

I awaken to another day because you sustain me,

you are life itself.

I refuse to be afraid or intimated of my old enemies,

bondages, and evil all around,

Lord I trust you.

Arise, save and deliver me once more!

You confuse my enemies,

they know not their right hand from their left,

you strike their face, shatter their teeth.

You are a defender of the righteous,

protecting and blessing your people.

I praise you Lord,

how beautiful is your salvation,

I bless your Name!

Amen.

The Lord’s Dominion

Lord God,

I praise you for you are the once and future king,

reigning forever over all your creation.

I rejoice in your perfect, wise rule,

and am glad for your leadership.

Thunderings, lightnings, and emerald rainbows surround you,

your throne is established on righteousness and justice.

Your holy fire goes before you,

striking down your enemies all around,

the highest peaks melt down like candles in your presence.

The skies proclaim your handiwork,

the heavens declare your glory,

that all people throughout all the earth see your beauty and brilliance.

Lord you are God Most High,

there is none second to you

that can ever come close to compare to you.

Above all other gods, you reign.

Help me to know you,

to love you more O Lord,

to despise evil and darkness,

protect me and guard me from the wicked’s schemes.

Sow your light into my heart

and illuminate my path,

let joy spring up from your wells within,

and let my heart delight in your favor and strength.

I rejoice in your blood that cleanses and washes me clean,

and I praise you

remembering your blessed and holy Name today.

Amen.

Adon Olam

Lord of the universe,

you ruled and reigned before creation,

before a breath was taken,

and matter formed.

When your heart and desire

brought all things forth,

your name, title, position, and power

was King.

At the end of all things,

King of the universe,

awesome and glorious in power,

you will alone rule.

Lord, you were,

you are, and you will be,

always in majesty, honor, and glory.

O Lord, our God,

you are one,

there’s none that comes even close,

even second to you,

none to compare with you,

none that can be placed side by side with you.

You have no beginning, you have no end,

you are God,

and you have all the power, all dominion,

all authority, all reign.

You are my God,

my beautiful, living Redeemer,

who I run to in my time of trouble,

my rock, my refuge, my tower of strength.

You are a banner of love and victory over me,

my covering, protection, and safe place,

when I call, you fulfill and satisfy,

you are my portion, you are my cup,

your presence makes my cup overflow.

In your able hands, I entrust my spirit,

my life is yours when I sleep, when I wake.

While my breath still moves my body,

I will remember —

you O Lord are for me,

and I will not fear.

Amen.
