Shout praise to God, all the earth! Make music to the glory of his name! Make his praise glorious! Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds!” Because of your great power, your enemies must cower before you. All the earth bows down to you. They make music to you. They make music to your name.
Dear Heavenly Father,
How marvelous are your deeds, and we praise you for all the glorious things you have done! You have showered us, your people, with love, and we thank you, heavenly Father. By faith, we shout the praises of your glorious name because you did not leave or abandon us in our sins. When our first parents fell into sin, the entire human race fell also, and we were separated from you. Instead of destroying us, you sent us your Son to remove sin’s separation; he redeemed us by his death on the cross and bringing us forgiveness. Those who believe and have faith in you are no longer your enemy but are taken into your family. You are our loving God who brings hope to a fallen people; through Jesus’ death on the cross, our lives have been restored. Jesus’ holy life and innocent death have removed the sin that caused us to be divided from you. Our entire salvation is because of your love, so we sing with joy because you have not forgotten us. We pray that you will give us occasions to share the good news of your love and forgiveness with those who do not know you. So that they, too, may be part of your family and hold to the hope that only comes through Jesus. Amen.
