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.

Upon His Shoulders

Lord of my rest,

I bless you.

I receive your comfort,

healing and refreshing,

depleted and needy

for your Spirit and grace.

Thank you for rest,

break into my frenetic cycles

where my wheels only spin

and I’m more stuck than I know.

Shine your light

on the root of my anxieties,

so I can’t cover it up,

and help me

to cast all my cares on you.

Break through my muteness,

open my mouth,

so my heart can spill forth the cries

pent up behind my futile actions.

When the world weighs heavy on my shoulders,

and surrounding sin and pain grieve me,

I choose to remember you,

my Lord,

Wonderful Counselor,

Mighty God,

Everlasting Father,

Prince of Peace,

the government is upon your shoulder.

I praise your Name.

Amen.
