Glorify God Prayer

In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for ever. Selah.  (Psalms 44:8)

I’m always grateful for another day that God has kept me and as Psalm 44 states, I will boast in the Lord every chance I get.

In Psalm 111, beginning with verse 1, it reads:

1  Praise ye the LORD. I will praise the LORD with my whole heart, in the assembly of the           upright, and in the congregation. 2  The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein. 3  His work is honourable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth for ever. 4  He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD is gracious and full of      compassion. 5  He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his covenant. 6  He hath shewed his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the      heathen. 7  The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are sure . 8  They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness. 9  He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and      reverend is his name. 10The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do     his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.

In everything that we do, in every place that we go, we should glorify God to the highest and make it known that we are a child of the living King and that we serve the one true living God.  We should boast in the Lord of His goodness.  We should be lively stones; rejoicing in the fact that Jesus reigns FOREVER!

So even now, as we begin to pray, we want to thank God for His goodness unto us.

Dear Heavenly Father, we thank you on this day Lord for your grace and for your mercy; for allowing us to see another day.  Lord we thank you because you first loved us, Lord you love us with an everlasting love; more than we love our self, with a love that surpasses all understanding, but we thank You for it Lord.  Bless Your Holy Name.  Thank you Lord. 
Lord, it is an honor and privilege to come before you this day acknowledging your sovereignty; giving you all the honor and glory for keeping us another day; for keeping us in our health and strength; having the use of our limbs and being in our right faculties, but most of all, dear Father, we thank you for a right mind; a mind to serve you and worship you in spirit and in truth. 

All blessings, honor and glory belong to You; it’s due you for You are the sovereign one; the Lord of Lord and King of Kings.

We thank You heavenly father because You are our keeper, the lover of our souls, the comforter, the almighty, the great I AM.  I thank You Lord for sticking closer than a brother.  I thank You Lord because You've never failed us; You picked us up out of a world filled with sin and shame.  You cleaned us up on the inside so that Your glory could be revealed on the outside.  You replaced our stony hearts with a heart filled with a desire to serve You.  You gave us a peace that passes all understanding.  I thank You Lord because you said You’d never leave us nor forsake us.  I thank You Lord because You've delivered us from our self.  Thank you Lord because You are a mind regulator, You sustain our mind.  You've kept us Lord, when we didn’t think we could be kept, You hid us in your secret place and protected us in the shelter of your wings.  When we thought we couldn't go on, You gave us your word to encourage our self in, You gave us shelter in the time of our storms, You are our strength Lord when we’re weak and worn.

We come to you heavenly father with thanks giving in our hearts knowing that You and only you are able to supply our every need; to equip us to run this race, to defeat everything that comes up against us, everything that is not like you.  Lord we thank you for the provision that You've given.

Dear heavenly father, we thank you for one more opportunity to unite in prayer and supplication before You; for each time that we come before You in prayer.  We are humbled in Your presence.    

Lord we acknowledge that we just can’t do without You, we can’t win without You, we need Your power and Your strength.  We realize that it is no goodness of our own but You Lord, in Your infinite grace and mercy, that keeps us and allows us to accomplish Your will in our lives.  It is Your grace, mercy and good pleasure that we are here today.  In You Lord, we have  a promise of eternal life with You. 

Lord, You instruct us to meditate on your word day and night.  I thank you Lord for these portions of your word that remind us of who you are:

2 Peter 1:4
You said in your word because of your glory and excellence, you've given us great and precious promises; promises that enable us to share your divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human lusts.

Jeremiah 29:11
You said You know the plans You have for us,” plans for good and not for disaster, to give us a future and a hope.  You tell us in your word, that the battle is not ours, that it belongs to you.  So when we feel overwhelmed with the cares of this world, help us Lord to stand, when we've done all that we can possibly do, help us to stand with our faith rooted and grounded in you. 

Matthew 11:28-29
My God, You promised us rest!  You said “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and you’ll give us rest.  You said to take Your yoke upon us and learn from you, for You are gentle and humble in heart, and we’ll find rest for our souls.

Isaiah 40:29-31
We thank you heavenly father because you give power to the weak and strength to the powerless.  You promised new strength to those of us who trust in You.  Lord You said we will soar high on wings like eagles.  That we’ll run and not grow weary; that we’ll walk and not faint.  Like Paul, I trust and believe that I can do all things in Jesus name thru Christ which strengthens me.

Philippians 4:19
King David said, “I was young and now I’m old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread.”  Lord God, I thank You because we know You as a provider.  I thank You because You favored me not to have to go without; when I didn’t know how I was going to make it; but because of obedience to Your word, You supplied all of my needs.  And because I know that You are not a respecter of persons, I know that the same God who takes care of me will supply all of our needs from His glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.

Lord I thank you because thru You, we don’t have to worry and fret, be depressed or have any other negative feelings due to the cares of this world because despite all these things, whatever negative thing that may come our way, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, because You love us.  We thank You Father because You loved us so much that you gave your son as the final sacrifice for us.  We thank You God for the holy lamb, Jesus, who You sent here to save us and wash our sins away. 
We thank you heavenly father for Your wings of comfort and protection.  You tell us in your word to be careful for nothing; but in everything we do, by prayer and supplication and with thanksgiving, we are to let our requests be made known to You.   We thank you because we know You hear our prayers and our supplications and that You will answer us.  We thank you Lord, for we know that if we seek Your kingdom first and Your righteousness, that You will come down and see about us.
 Proverbs 1:33
We thank You Lord because when we heed Your voice and Your word, You said we will live in peace, untroubled by fear of harm.”

John 14:27
We thank You Lord for Jesus leaving us with a gift—a gift of peace of mind and heart. Jesus said, “And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.”

We thank You Lord, because You said if we confess our sins, You are faithful and just to forgive.    Teach us Lord to forgive and be forgiving even as You are.  Help us to walk in the fruit of  Your spirit.  We know that when we walk in obedience according to Your word that You will supply every need we have according to your riches in glory. 

Dear God, we thank You for Your great, everlasting faithfulness and unfailing love thru Jesus Christ.  We thank You for Your goodness and for Your mercy.    Lord, we want to say thank You for all that you’ve done and for all that you’re going to do.

And now, Lord we pray that even as You be within us that You be with us, that You lead us and guide us, give us wisdom and knowledge to speak and act according to Your will; that we may be laborers in Your field; that we may draw others to You.  

We ask all these things and we thank you for all things, in Jesus’ wonderful name we pray, amen

In closing, I want to leave this final scripture with you:

Romans 8:37-39

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Give God the glory thanking Him for joy, peace and Hope that we have in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

I pray that all minds are clear and that something was said to encourage us to go on in Jesus name.  

Have a wonderfully blessed God-filled day!
