Prayers for a Whole Life : Day 16

a prayer of praise
(mostly) taken from Psalm 22




You who fear the Lord, praise him!
All you offspring of Jacob, glorify him,
stand in awe of him, all you offspring of Israel!

          We will tell of your name to our families;
          in the midst of the assembly we will praise you!

From you comes my praise in the great congregation...
The poor shall eat and be satisfied;
those who seek him shall praise the Lord.

          We will tell of your name to our city;
          in the midst of the assembly we will praise you!

All the ends of the earth shall remember
and turn to the Lord;
and all the families of the nations shall worship before him.

          We will tell of your name to the nations;
          in the midst of the assembly we will praise you!

To him, indeed, shall all who sleep in the earth bow down;
before him shall bow all who go down to the dust,
and I shall live for him.

          We will tell of your name for eternity;
          in the midst of the assembly we will praise you!

Praise the Lord!
