1 Praise the Lord.
I will extol the Lord with all my heart
in the council of the upright and in the assembly.
2 Great are the works of the Lord;
they are pondered by all who delight in them.
3 Glorious and majestic are his deeds,
and his righteousness endures forever.
4 He has caused his wonders to be remembered;
the Lord is gracious and compassionate.
5 He provides food for those who fear him;
he remembers his covenant forever.
6 He has shown his people the power of his works,
giving them the lands of other nations.
7 The works of his hands are faithful and just;
all his precepts are trustworthy.
8 They are established for ever and ever,
enacted in faithfulness and uprightness.
9 He provided redemption for his people;
he ordained his covenant forever—
holy and awesome is his name.
10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
all who follow his precepts have good understanding.
To him belongs eternal praise.
Psalm 111 (Praise for the Lord’s Works)
God, You are worthy of my praise! There is evidence of Your goodness all around. It is everlasting. You are gracious and compassionate. You provide for me on earth and set a place for me in Heaven. What else do you adore about God?
I admit that I can trust myself before trusting You. In my human nature, I try to justify myself and stray from Your trustworthy instruction. Forgive me for when I have feared my circumstances more than I’ve had faith in You. Open up to God more through confession. Remember, He loves you unconditionally.
Thank you, God, for the evidence of Your love. Your great works exceed my expectation and understanding. I am grateful for Your pursuit of me and Your endless faithfulness. Tell God more of the ways you’re thankful for Him.
My needs are not a mystery to you, so I ask for your provision. Please provide for my needs as it relates to my health, my relationships, my finances, and my purpose. God, give me wisdom in the daily details of life. Help me to put you first in all my decisions. I also pray that you would… [ask God for what you need]. Continue asking God for what you need. He cares for you and listens to your requests. Amen.
