Praying the Psalms: Mon, 09 Jul – Psalm 8 ~ majestic glory

Praying the Psalms

+ In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen!

Opening – (Northumbria Community)

One thing I have asked of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life; to behold the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple.

Praise to You, Lord Jesus Christ, King of endless glory.

Morning Reading: Psalm 8 (NLT)

O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens. You have taught children and infants to tell of your strength, silencing your enemies and all who oppose you.

When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers—the moon and the stars you set in place—what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human beings that you should care for them? Yet you made them only a little lower than God and crowned them with glory and honor. You gave them charge of everything you made, putting all things under their authority—the flocks and the herds and all the wild animals, the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea, and everything that swims the ocean currents.

O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!

Morning Prayer

Lord our God: your majestic glory fills the earth –

  • Give us eyes to see the wonder and beauty of your creation….
  • Give us minds to recognize your sovereignty over human history….
  • Give us hearts to receive your redemption through your Son, Jesus Christ….

Lord our God: your majestic glory fills the heavens and yet, you have shown special favor to frail humanity –

  • You think about us and care for us….
  • You made us in your image, crowned with glory and honor….
  • You entrusted us with the care of your creation….

Lord our God: you amaze us everywhere we turn. Your majestic glory is all around us. Show us your glory!

“Majestic (Psalm 8)” – The Shiyr Poets

O Lord our Lord | How majestic is your name in all the earth
O Lord our Lord | You have set your glory higher than the heavens

Through your children’s purest praise
You establish strength against your foes
To silence all your enemies; every avenger

When I consider the heavens | When I consider the work of your hands
The moon and the stars | Which You have set in place

What is man that you are mindful | Humankind that you care
Who are we that you consider us

You made us a little less than the gods
And clothed us with glory and grandeur

You make them rule | Over the work of your hands
Everything under their feet | Beasts of the field | Flocks of the air | Fish in the sea

Blessing – (Northumbrian Community)

May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you, wherever He may send you. May He guide you through the wilderness, protect you through the storm. May He bring you home rejoicing at the wonders He has shown you. May He bring you home rejoicing once again into our doors.

+ In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen!
