The Reigning King

Lord,

I praise you

you are the living God,

ruling and reigning in flesh and Spirit

from the heavenlies,

seated on your throne.

I praise you for your salvation,

for your healing and deliverance,

for granting me eternal life.

I praise you that you are coming once more

to make all things right.

Thank you for your love and presence,

that your eyes and heart move in and through

the broken systems of this world,

drawing all the orphans,

the poor in spirit to you.

You see, you know, you have the last word,

you are justice and mercy,

our holy, righteous, perfect God.

Come quickly Lord,

I bless your Name.

Amen.

I Praise You Lord

Lord,

I worship you.

Son of God,

Son of man

made of skin, bone, and flesh,

yet filled with Holy Spirit,

stepping into time

making eternity known,

your Word, sacrifice, death, and resurrection.

your love, mercy, and grace,

Your presence is life,

you save and deliver,

you redeem and resurrect,

your wisdom is from above,

all your ways perfect and good.

There’s none like you,

holy, beautiful, unknowable God,

who has pursued and grasped my heart,

loved me into surrender,

and resurrected my life.

You alone are Lord,

King of kings,

the one true God.

and I praise you alone Lord,

Amen.

Righteous Ruler

Lord,

I praise you for opening my eyes to your Light.

Thank you for taking me from spiritual darkness,

living and knowing only shadows,

and graciously shining your light upon me.

I praise you that you multiply my joy,

gifting me praise, dance, and song,

let me ever be jubilant,

victorious over my past, sin, and bondage

because of all you have done.

You have destroyed the yoke of oppression,

the burden of my rebellion against you,

establishing the government upon your shoulders.

I praise you Lord —

Kind Counselor, Awesome God,

my Father Forevermore, Sar Shalom,

you will rule always,

upholding justice, righteousness, peace.

Your passion and love will accomplish this.

I put my trust in 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.

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.
