Praying the Psalms: Thu, 08 Nov – Psalm 113 ~ Blessed be the name of the Lord!

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 113 (NLT)

Praise the Lord!

Yes, give praise, O servants of the Lord. Praise the name of the Lord! Blessed be the name of the Lord now and forever. Everywhere—from east to west—praise the name of the Lord. For the Lord is high above the nations; his glory is higher than the heavens.

Who can be compared with the Lord our God, who is enthroned on high?

  • He stoops to look down on heaven and on earth.
  • He lifts the poor from the dust and the needy from the garbage dump.
  • He sets them among princes, even the princes of his own people!
  • He gives the childless woman a family, making her a happy mother.

Morning Prayer

O Lord our God: Blessed be your Name, now and forever –

+ in you all creation is held together…
+ in you we live and move and have our being…
+ in you we have meaning and purpose…
+ in you we live full, satisfying lives…

O Lord our God: Blessed be your Name, now and forever –

+ for you sent your Son, Jesus Christ, to live among us…
+ for you forgave our sins and restored our souls…
+ for you made us children of light, in a world of darkness…
+ for your Spirit works in us to seek and save the lost…

O Lord our God: Blessed be your Name, now and forever; and blessed be the Name of your Son, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you in unity with the Holy Spirit, one incomparable God, for ever and ever. Amen.
