Psalm 145

This hymn helps us share in
this majestic Psalm,
celebrating the
greatness and
goodness of
our magnificent God.

Printed Music

O Your goodness! O Your greatness,
Light of every soul and star!
Dazzled by Your endless wonders,
None can fathom all You are.
Every passing generation
Sings what all Your children know.
Hymns of all Your mighty mercies
Bubble up and overflow.

Yahweh, God of all compassion,
Always grace in all You do,
Patient and forever faithful,
Mercy ever moment new!
O Your everlasting Kingdom,
Here among us now begun!
Finish all Your love has started
With the gift of Christ Your Son.

All Your goodness, all Your greatness
Reaches down to those who fall.
Tender, constant, rich provision
Flows from You, the All-in-all.
All You do is right and loving.
When we cry, You always hear,
Ever guarding, ever giving,
Ever God and ever here!

Concerned with What Concerns You

Father, I spend much of my prayer time
talking to You about
my concerns,
big and small.
And that’s good!
You welcome me, and
You encourage me to bring my concerns.

But I also know that You are the One who put me
here and now,
in this time and place.
I am here to
concern myself with
Your concerns.

Father, awaken me and
keep me alert,
to the dear people and
eternal matters
that surround me every day.

Eternal matters
regularly masquerade as
daily matters and
small things.
People are Your concern.
People are to be my concern.

Teach me, Father.
Guide me by Your Spirit.
Help me to fill my
here and
Your love for the
individuals around me every day.

Hymn: Prayer of Intercession

Psalm 18

Here is an exuberant celebration of
God as Savior.

Printed Music

I love You, Lord, my strength, my rock,
My refuge, my salvation!
Almighty God, You deserve all our praise!
Creation quakes and mountains move,
For You, the Lord, are with us.
Almighty God, You deserve all our praise!

Alone and overwhelmed,
Surrounded and afraid,
You bowed and came to meet my need.
You answered when I prayed!

Enabled, Lord, by You,
What challenge should I dread?
Empowered by Your holy breath,
I boldly move ahead.

Deep Knowing

Father, in Your great heart
You long for us to know You
entirely and completely,
all we are
all You are.

You created this entire universe,
immense and majestic,
not only to show us Yourself,
but to engulf us in
Your power,
Your wisdom,
Your love, and
the vastness of Your mystery.
Yet even as we are immersed in all this, we see only
the fringes of Your robe.
We hear only
a faint whisper of You. (Job 26:14)

To show Yourself completely,
You gave us Your own Son.
You incarnated Him as
the most helpless and humble of all human beings:
the newborn infant of
an unmarried peasant girl
from a small, oppressed people
in one corner of the world.

Here is the transcendent, undiminished God!
Here is the full radiance of Your glory!
Here is the exact representation of Your very nature! (Hebrews 1:3)
Here is the fullness of Your Deity in bodily form, and
You have made us
full and complete
in Him. (Colossians 2:9-10)
As we look to Him,
we are being changed into His likeness. (2 Corinthians 3:18)

But we do yet see Him for all He is. (1 John 3:2)
With all His many magnificent names,
He has a name, an identity,
that no one knows but Him. (Revelation 19:12)

But we know this:
when He appears,
we will be like Him,
because we will see Him just as He is. (1 John 3:2, NASB)
We will know Him fully,
we will know You, Father,
even as we are fully known. (1 Corinthians 13:12)

Your deep longing for us
will be fulfilled
every moment,
entirely and completely,
all we are
all You are.
We will be immersed in You,
one with You,
saturated with
Your presence,
Your holiness,
Your love,
Your life, in all its depth and richness.

Father, finish what You have begun.
We long for You!
We are waiting at the door.

Whatever awaits me the moment after I die,
Father, I want
my first thought,
my first desire,
my first awareness to be

The Enthronement

God has ascended amid shouts of joy,
the Lord amid the sounding of trumpets.
Sing praise to God, sing praises…
For God is the king of all the earth…

The kingdom of the world has become
the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ,
and he will reign for ever and ever.
(Psalm 47:5-7; Revelation 11:15; NIV)

My heart longs for our God,
for our Father,
for Jesus Christ our Savior,
for the constant breath of their Spirit,
for complete oneness with them
and in them
that we taste only briefly here.

I long for Almighty God to be enthroned over
every thought,
every desire,
every relationship,
every life,
over all reality
every moment

Your Kingdom come!

Almighty God
will soon take up and exercise
the power that has always been His.
All the kingdoms of the world
will become His Kingdom, and
He will reign forever.
He will rightly judge every individual and
establish justice and peace
throughout all His creation.
