  1. Worthy of Praise

    Today's psalm is the second shortest Scripture in the Bible and concludes the final "songs of ascents."

    The opening line in this opening verse says, "Come, bless the Lord, all you servants of the Lord" (Psalm 134:1). This is a gathering of God's people praising and exalting the Lord in the temple of Jerusalem. 

    How I long to be gathered again, in person, worshipping our Lord together. 

    I'm reminded of that song "I Sing Praises To Your Name" by Terry Macalmon…

    I Sing Praises To Your Name, Oh Lord,
    Praises To Your Name, Oh Lord,
    For Your Name Is Great And Greatly To Be Praised.
    I Sing Praises To Your Name, Oh Lord,
    Praises To Your Name, Oh Lord,
    For Your Name Is Great And Greatly To Be Praised.

    I Give Glory To Your Name, Oh Lord,
    Glory To Your Name, Oh Lord,
    For Your Name Is Great And Greatly To Be Praised.
    I Give Glory To Your Name, Oh Lord,
    Glory To Your Name, Oh Lord,
    For Your Name Is Great And Greatly To Be Praised.


    ~ Puritan Prayers ~

    "A Prayer of Everyday Gratitude"

    "Lord Jesus, Accept my unceasing thanks that I am not cast off from Thy hand as a darkened star or a rudderless vessel. Suffer not my life to extend beyond my usefulness; Cast me not under the feet of pride, injustice, riches, worldly greatness, selfish oppression of men;  Help me to wait patiently, silently upon Thee, not to be enraged or speak unadvisedly. Let Thy mercy follow me while I live, and give me aid to resign myself to Thy will.

    Take my heart and hold it in Thy hand; write upon it reverence to Thyself with an inscription that time and eternity cannot erase.

    To Thy grace and the care of Thy covenant I commit myself, in sickness, and in health, for Thou hast overcome the world, fulfilled the law, finished justifying righteousness, swallowed up death in victory, and taken all power everywhere.

    Mark this covenant with Thine own blood in the court of forgiving mercy;  Attach unto it Thy name in which I believe, for it is sealed by my unworthy mortal hand."

    (Excerpt taken Piercing Heaven: Prayers of the Puritans)
