May God, who gives us peace, who raised up Jesus from the dead and who through the blood of Christ has ratified a new and everlasting covenant and has now become our Good Shepherd, may He transform us and fit us perfectly into His will. To God be praise who through Jesus Christ accomplished through us what is pleasing to our Heavenly Father. To Him be glory forever and forever. Amen!

Father, You are God the object of my worship. My heart longs for spiritual renewal like a dry and dusty land longs for rain. O that You would manifest Your power and Your glory in our worship. I know Father that our worship comes miserably short of what You deserve. Your unconditional love [that we experience through our relationship in Christ] is better than life itself. It is hard to imagine an existence a part from Jesus love. As long as I have body, breath, and brains, I will pray to You and I will sing praises to You. I think about you before I got to sleep and night. I think about You when I awake during the night. I think about You when I rise and I know that it is not possible for me to think more of you than You think of me. That thought alone is better than a steak dinner. LORD, I want to stay as close to You as possible. I would have no objection to You taking me by the hand. I do have enemies LORD and they dream of my disgrace but I had rather focus on You than them. I know that you will vindicate all who trust in YOU. I just want to celebrate Your love and be faithful to Your call. In Jesus name I pray, amen!
[I Chronicles 16]
LORD You are great and worthy of praise. Let us enter Your presence with thanksgiving in our hearts for You are worthy of honor and praise. Glory and majesty surround You and power and joy dwell in Your presence. I praise You as the Creator, Sustainer and Ruler of all things. I bow before You as my eternal Sovereign. I praise Your glorious name. May I be faithful to praise You now and forever. Create in my heart a spirit of thanksgiving. Put a melody in my hear and a song of praise on my lips. Let me not be ashamed to sing Your praises. May I worship with the passion of King David who danced before You with all his might. Grace me to worship You with zeal and passion. Let there be both celebration and awe in my worship. I know you can perform miracles and there is no big or small with You. LORD You are God and that puts You in a class all to yourself. Help me to never forget Your commandments. May I cling to Your promises. May Your presence abide with us as we go in and out: protect us LORD from the evil one. LORD God, make us faithful in proclaiming Your grace and goodness to the world. Let us be a witness to Your glory before the nations of the world.
