Praying the Scriptures - A Prayer for God's Glory
This is the first "Praying the Scriptures" prayer that comes right out of the Word of God. All the words are from the Psalms with only minor pronoun changes to personalize the prayer. This concept has been suggested by others over the years but I've found this to be so powerful! You're not just reading "somebody's prayer." You're taking God's Word and literally praying it back to Him! We struggle at times to say the "right thing" when we pray. You can't get more "right" than praying what God led His prophets and apostles to write! Other prayers from the Scriptures will be coming in time. All the Scripture passages used are taken from The New Living Translation and are listed below in the order of their use. I chose not to "chapter and verse" the prayer. I hope you appreciate the selections chosen.
May God bless you as you Pray for God's Glory. Make this your personal prayer to God.
"Not to me, O Lord, not to me, but to Your name goes all the glory. O God, I give glory to You all day long and constantly praise Your name. For You, O Lord, are supreme over all the earth; You are exalted far above all gods. You thrill me, Lord, with all You have done for me! I sing for joy because of what You have done. O Lord, what great works You do! And how deep are Your thoughts. But You, O Lord, will be exalted forever. With all my heart I will praise You, O Lord my God. I will give glory to Your name forever, for Your love for me is very great. You have rescued me from the depths of death. Praise You, Lord God...You alone do such wonderful things. Praise Your glorious name forever! May the whole world be filled with Your glory. Amen and Amen!"
Psalm 115:1; Psalm 44:8; Psalm 97:9; Psalm 92:4,5,8; Psalm 86:12,13; Psalm 72:18,19
