I am in the process of slowly putting together another devotional prayer booklet in which all the prayers begin with the statement “God, You are….”. This one is “God, You are Praiseworthy.” It is a reminder to me, and I hope to you as well, that when we praise Him, we remember who He is… a God who is much bigger than all our problems, and a God who is mighty to save! Rejoice with me:
Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him; bless His name. Psalm 100:4
God, You are Praiseworthy. I will give thanks to You according to Your righteousness, and will sing praise to Your name, O Lord Most High. Yes, I will give thanks to You with all my heart. I will tell of all Your wonders. I will be glad and exult in You. You are King over all creation, You are Commander of the wind, and…. You care for me—incredible! You are Ruler of all the nations, You are righteous in all Your deeds, and… You redeemed my life from despair—beautiful! Yes, hear me praise Your name, O God of my salvation. I will praise You for hearing my cry; I will praise you for pulling me out of the miry clay. I will praise You for setting my feet upon a rock. I will praise you for making my footsteps firm. And I will praise You for putting a new song in my mouth! In Your courts, I will sing my joyful song to You, O God my Savior. Indeed, I will join the holy chorus: Praise the Lord from the heavens, praise Him in the heights above. Praise Him, all His angels, praise Him, all his heavenly hosts. Praise Him sun and moon, praise Him, all you shining stars. Praise Him, you highest heavens and you waters above the skies. Let them praise the name of the Lord. Yes, I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. So today, all day, I will choose to praise Your name.
