Shout with joy to God, all the earth! Sing the glory of his name; make his praise glorious! Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies cringe before you. All the earth bows down to you; they sing praise to you, they sing praise to your name.”
Psalms 66:1-4 (NIV84)
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord . Praise the Lord.
Psalms 150:6 (NIV84)
Shout with joy to God! I must admit that I don’t always display the exuberance captured in this scripture.
In the early mornings, I have been guilty of rolling out of bed while groaning to my Lord, “Lord, I am not ready to face this day.” But an amazing thing happens as I begin to widen my eyes and focus on Him. My mind and spirit awaken and my attitude of dread becomes thankfulness; my verbal groaning transforms into words of praise.
Today, dear Lord, let us focus on your awesome deeds and mighty power as you walk by our side. In a world filled with evil and uncertainty, I pray that you transform our anxiousness to joy and our despair into hope. Clear our clouded vision dear Lord, so that we may see past ourselves to recognize and reach out to others in need.
In your most precious name we pray. Amen.
