Men ought always to pray, and not to faint.

A Prayer of Praise

{Based on Psalm 103}

Abba Father, I will praise YOU because You are worthy of praise. I praise You for Your infinite attributes–I praise You for being holy, good, just, faithful, gracious, long-suffering, patient, kind and merciful. I praise You because You have a plan to save us from all that harms us and You have the desire and ability to execute this plan. In Your time, you will save us from our sin, our self, our weakness and all our sickness. You will save us from death, darkness, demons and diseases. I praise You because You do not give us what we deserve which is death and hell. I praise You for the ability to separate us from our sin as far as the east is from the west. I praise You for your infinite love which is higher than the heavens and deeper than outer space. I praise You because Your love is supernatural, unconditional, eternal, complete and perfect satisfying our souls deepest need. I praise you for creating me and for knowing me. You know more about me than I know about myself. You know my frailty, my weakness, my sins and my motives. There are no secrets with You. I praise You because You know me yet you love me. I praise You because You or KING of kings and LORD of lords: You are sovereign, You are in absolute control. I praise You because You allow us to serve You; what a joy it is to be your servant. In spite of all my failures; in spite of my fleshly nature, my inordinate pride, my selfish ambition and my uncontrolled anger: I will praise YOU because You are all that I am not and all that I long to be.
