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.
