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 29 (NLT)

Honor the Lord, you heavenly beings; honor the Lord for his glory and strength. Honor the Lord for the glory of his name. Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.

  • The voice of the Lord echoes above the sea. The God of glory thunders.
  • The Lord thunders over the mighty sea.
  • The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic.
  • The voice of the Lord splits the mighty cedars; the Lord shatters the cedars of Lebanon.
  • He makes Lebanon’s mountains skip like a calf; he makes Mount Hermon leap like a young wild ox.
  • The voice of the Lord strikes with bolts of lightning.
  • The voice of the Lord makes the barren wilderness quake; the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
  • The voice of the Lord twists mighty oaks and strips the forests bare.

In his Temple everyone shouts, “Glory!”

The Lord rules over the floodwaters. The Lord reigns as king forever. The Lord gives his people strength. The Lord blesses them with peace.

Morning Prayer

O Lord our God: You alone are worthy of our honor and praise. Welcome us today into the splendor of your majesty.

+ For your power is displayed in the storm and tempest, the lightning and thunder
+ For your loving-kindness is displayed in the mercy and grace shown your people
+ For you are the everlasting King, giving strength and peace to your people
+ For you exhibit your righteousness and exercise judgement over all the earth

O Lord our God: Heaven and earth rejoice in the glory of your Name.

+ Give us purity of heart that we may worship you
+ Give us discernment to recognize you in the thunderstorm
+ Give us songs to praise your glory in every circumstance
+ Give us proper fear and respect in the presence of your holiness

O Lord our God: King for ever! Thank you for welcoming us into your presence (not on any merits of our own) through faith and trust in your Son, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen.
