Praise you, Lord, that you are the Sovereign One, the prayer-answering, power-giving, all-providing God. Praise you that you are the Place of Refuge, the Stronghold in times of trouble, the Great Shepherd, the Warrior King.
I praise you that yesterday you guided us through the difficulties, the attacks of the enemy, the traps set for us. I praise you that you guided me in not defending myself, not striking back, not replying in kind. Praise you that you helped me to remember that my significance is found in you, that you led me to respond with praise when I wanted to complain, to let go of my desire, to hold on to your love, grace and truth and to rise above the events.
You are great and gracious, O God, you are powerful and perfect, good and glorious. I praise you for the privilege of being your son, your beloved one, your servant, your heir.
I praise you, too, for what you are going to do today. Praise you that you have been through this day, preparing things and are preparing us. I praise you now for what you will do. Work things out so we will give glory to you, so that we will have opportunity to give you honor, praise and exaltation throughout the day. I thank you, Lord, I am so glad to belong to you, to have purpose, protection, power and provision from your hand. You are my rock, you are my Shepherd, you are my God and I revel in you.
