Sunday Praise (13) 12/2/18. by me

My heart is filled with praise
For You have filled it, God,
My heart rejoices in You
My Master, Savior, Friend.

Make Yourself at home
In my heart, good Lord,
Throw the trash out of it,
Make use of my heart.

It is good for us to gather
And praise You, worthy One,
We are here to worship You,
Lord and Savior, God and King.

Brothers and sisters in Christ
Come together to exalt You,
To witness of Your great deeds
In their lives and in others’.

We enter Your presence
With thanksgiving, Lord,
We know that You are worthy
To be exalted, heavenly Father.

We will bless Your name,
We are Your servants,
We are Your children,
You’re our Father in Heaven.

We praise You, You are good,
We bless You, You are loving,
We sing praises to You, God,
It is good and pleasant to do it.

I want to praise You
With all of my heart
And with my whole soul
For all that You’ve done.

My heart is ready to praise You,
I come into Your presence, God,
Glory to You, holy and righteous One,
I will exalt Your name now and forever.

I want to love You more and more
For all that You have done for me
And what You’ve done for others,
You deserve to be thanked and praised.

God, I praise You for saving me,
You’ve ransomed me, rescued me,
I’m saved by Your grace through faith,
I am Your child now, my soul rejoices.

Teach me to praise You
When I enter a weak state,
Teach me to trust You more
Especially when it’s difficult.

Help me to pray all the more
In life’s difficult moments, Lord,
I’m learning how important that is,
I need Your help to do that, Father.

Correct me where I’m wrong,
Discipline me, heavenly Father,
Remove the hindrances to my growth
In faith and love and knowledge of You.

Help me to praise You more,
I can only thrive in You,
You’re my hope and joy,
You’re my King and Father.

Help me to remember the Cross
On which Christ died for me,
Help me to cherish His sacrifice,
To glorify Him for what He’s done.

You made me whiter than the snow
By the blood of Christ the Savior,
I’m made new, made whole, justified,
Set apart for You, to fulfil Your will.

Blessed be Your name, O Lord,
Blessed be You now and always,
Praise and honor, glory and power
All to You, my God, my Savior, King.


Sunday Praise (12) 11/25/18

Sunday Praise (12) 11/25/18. by me.

This is where I want to be –
In Your presence, heavenly Father.
This is what my soul longs for –
You alone, to be with You, God.

I am learning to praise You,
You’re teaching me daily
To obey You as I should,
To love You and people.

The more I think about You
The more I am amazed, God,
You are wonderful, majesty,
There really is none like You.

Daily You are beckoning me
To come, to be closer to You,
To enter Your presence as I am,
Bringing You my thanks and needs.

God, I look to no other name
For assurance of eternal life,
You’re my hope and strength,
You’re always the one I need.

I thank for the rain You sent
To where the fires were burning,
You washed away the smoke,
I thank You for Your mercy and care.

My heart rejoices in You, Lord,
Help me to rejoice when it’s hard,
Teach me to trust You more and more,
Help me to look to You always, God.

I come to You with praise,
With thanksgiving in my heart,
For You deserve it, You’re worthy,
There is none like You, O Lord.

Christ is my life’s foundation
Firm and sound and sure,
I’ve found no hope so real and true
As I found in You, my Almighty God.

Bring me closer to You
By Your love and grace,
I am seeking Your face,
Learning to love and obey.

God, Your grace is amazing
And You are more amazing still,
You’ve saved me, I’m Your child,
You have given me eternal life.

I know life’s not without problems,
There’s pain, loss, and suffering,
One day You’ll make those things end,
One day You’ll make it all as it should be.

Life is difficult, it’s not simple,
I’ve learned this from others
And I’m learning this myself,
You’re the one I always need.

Teach me to not love the world system
Nor things in it hostile toward You, God,
I want to speak truth to all those perishing,
To tell and show them what they need most.

Blessed be Your name,
Blessed be You, O Lord,
My soul blesses You now
And will bless You forever.

You’re greater than words can describe
And more wonderful than I now realize.
I want to give You a worthy offering
That You deserve and will accept.

Change my heart where change needs to be,
Work in me to change me for the better,
To love and obey and to be more like You,
I see no better change than this for my life.

God, for Your love I worship You,
For Your grace I glorify You,
For Your mercy I praise You,
For Your blesssings I thank You.

The Earth is surely full of Your mercy,
I see Your works when I focus on You,
Though some deny You anything at all
I know it’s not coincidence, it’s You, God.

It is good to praise You
Every day of my life,
You’ve given me all I have,
I thank You for everything.

My God, I enter Your presence,
Now is the time to worship You
For Your love and grace and mercy,
For Your truth and judgments and justice.

God, You’re the joy I can’t lose,
You’re my constant in the change,
You’re my hope and strength and song,
I will worship You now and forevermore.

Sunday Praise (11) 11/18/18

Sunday Praise (11) 11/18/18. by me.

You’re worthy to be praised
By all of creation, O Lord.
You deserve all the glory,
You alone do, now and forever.

Every new day is a gift
From Your hand, Creator,
Nothing can exist without
You allowing it to exist.

You create and destroy,
You make whole and restore,
You sustain and control,
Creator, Maker, God Almighty.

This is the day that You’ve made,
I want to rejoice and be glad in it.
Father, teach me to rejoice in You
In the hard, difficult circumstances.

It’s easy to take things for granted,
Easy to expect things will go my way,
But when troubles come and overtake
I turn to You, God, You’re my hope.

It’s easy to become comfortable
Living day to day by some routine,
A sense of stability, having control,
But growth becomes less evident.

My spirit longs to praise You
When circumstances are hard,
My flesh is weak and it tries
To do things without You, Lord.

I still have a long way to go
Until I can honestly say to You
‘I trust You completely no matter what.’
Father, teach me to trust You completely.

God, how can I not confess my failures?
You already know everything about me,
I’m afraid of this sometimes, ashamed
How often I fall, how often I fail You.

I am weak but You are strong,
You are right but I am wrong
When I just do things my own way
Without Your Spirit’s empowerment.

There’s so much You have done,
So much I could praise You for
So much You have done for everyone,
You alone have done all that You did.

Open my heart to give You praise,
I glorify You for all You have done,
I worship You alone, Almighty God,
You deserve it all, You’re worthy.

Teach me to receive from You
Everything with thanksgiving
For it all comes from Your hand
And You know why You give it.

You’re my hope and my joy,
My whole life is in Your hands,
You sustain me every moment,
I am Yours now and forever, God.

Teach me to obey Your commands,
To not alter what You’ve commanded,
To obey wholly, not partly as I sometimes do,
To remember all Your commands are right.

I want to live every day
To please and praise You
In word and in deed, Lord,
You alone are worthy of that.

God, my soul longs for You,
Nothing else can satisfy,
I know now why I am alive –
To glorify You and enjoy You.

I want to wake up every morning
With excitement to speak to You,
To enter Your presence, to praise You
For a new day, for everything, Abba.

Every day is an opportunity
To thank You for all the good
That You give and You do,
You are worthy to be praised.

Without You I have no true life,
You’ve created me, You’ve made me,
My very existence is depedent on You,
You sustain me, You are my very life.

God, You’ve given me life,
You have given me hope,
You have given me joy,
You’re all that and more.

I see Your goodness everywhere,
I can’t deny that You’re at work
In my life and in others’ lives,
I worship You for Your love and mercy.

God, thank You for Your mercy,
Thank You for Your grace,
Thank You for Your love,
Thank You for Your kindness.

Thank You that You’re holy,
Thank You that You’re righteous,
Thank You that You’re just,
Thank You that You’re perfect.

Thank You for Jesus Christ,
Thank You for salvation,
Thank You for eternal life
In Christ and through Him.

May unceasing praise flow
From my very soul, O Lord,
To You no matter where I go, Father,
In all I do and say may You be glorified.

Sunday Praise (10) 11/11/18.

Sunday Praise (10) 11/11/18. by me.

I find rest for my soul
In You alone, o Lord,
You make me whole,
Forever You’re sovereign.

I can have joy in this life
Even in the hardest times,
Situations and circumstances,
My joy is in You, You’re my joy.

Now we see things in part
Things aren’t clear enough
To see the reality as You see it
But one day we’ll see all clearly.

Tears of joy and tears of sorrow
Make up this life we live here now
But You’ve said and I believe
You’ll wipe away every tear.

Now there’s pain and suffering,
Hurt and sorrow, loss and death,
But one day all of that will be no more,
God, You have promised it will be so.

There’s so much to praise You for,
Help me find the words to express
My thankfulness, my gratitude,
Praise to You for everything You do.

My words here seem simple
But they’re from my heart.
Do they do You justice, Father?
Are they worthy of Your greatness?

May my heart and soul
Praise You now and always,
You alone are worthy, Lord,
To receive all glory and praise.

I’m learning, though not quickly,
How dependent I am on You,
I am seeing Your truth better,
You’re the one I need the most.

Lord, You show me
What I need to see
And You teach me
What I need to learn.

You give me hope,
I can trust Your Word,
I believe Your promises,
I can always trust You.

You are my great hope,
My anchor in life’s storms,
Foundation of my whole life,
You sustain me every moment.

Your Word is living and active,
Like new when I read it again,
Like fresh waters, like fresh food,
Nourishment for mind and heart.

To be content is to be thankful.
Teach me to be more thankful.
When we get sick You can
Get us thinking about humility.

Lord, sometimes we don’t think about the future,
We don’t think about life after death
When we’re busy with everyday things,
When routine leaves no time to think about it all.

I will praise You now and always,
Heavenly Father, I do love You.
Honor, power, might, wisdom, riches,
Glory, praise, all the best to You, God.

Sunday Praise (9) 11/4/18. by me.

Sunday Praise (9) 11/4/18. by me.

God, You deserve to be praised
For all that You have done,
For all that You’re doing,
For all that You will do.

God, Your name is holy,
Your name is powerful,
Your name is wonderful,
Your name be praised!

Blessed be You, Father,
All glory be to You alone,
Creator of the universe,
Sovereign over all things.

You are merciful, O Lord,
Teach me to be merciful,
You are loving, Father,
Teach me to be loving.

I need You every hour,
I need You every minute,
I need You every second,
God, I always need You.

You know the worst about me
And You still love me, Father,
You forgive my worst sins,
I’m humbled, amazed by You.

It cost Christ much to save us,
It was the greatest sacrifice,
He died for the underserving,
He died so we can have new life.

Your Son is the Lamb sinners slew,
His blood was shed for guilty sinners,
His death was the atoning sacrifice,
His resurrection is His great victory.

God, I want to always cherish
Christ sacrifice and forgiveness,
Help me to always remember
What it cost Christ to save me.

Oh, I am amazed that You love,
I am humbled that You forgive me
When I sin and repent of that wrong,
Father, You call me back to You.

I can always pray to You, Lord,
You always have time to hear me
And You answer according to
Your wisdom, love and Your will.

When I know I lack wisdom
Help me to ask You for it,
In my weakness I know
Your strength is shown.

It’s a joy, a blessing, a privilege,
To know, to love and to obey You,
From a young age or an old age,
You call all to repentance, to Yourself.

I am learning and realizing
How precious is God’s love for us,
How much Christ has saved us from,
What terrible things He rescued us from.

Blessed are You, merciful God,
Blessed be Your holy name
On Earth as it is in Heaven,
Now and always, forevermore.

Glory to Your blessed Son Christ
Who finished all the work You gave Him,
Who obeyed Your will and He alone
Is the Way to You, Father in Heaven.

I’m calling upon Your name,
Father, I know You hear me,
You answer as You see best,
You are my everything, God.

You are the resurrection and the Life,
You are the Way and I follow You,
You’re the Truth, I believe in and on You,
You’re the one I need most always.

The saints in Heaven know You
Better than we know You now on Earth.
The saints here and there praise You
For You saved us and them from Hell.

How great is Your love for all people!
How sad that many are still unsaved,
Many still fight against You and hate You,
But all will bow and confess You’re Lord.

May You be exalted in the heavens
And may You be exalted in the Earth,
God Almighty, all glory be to You,
You alone are worthy, You deserve it!

Sunday Praise (8) 10/28/18

Sunday Praise (8) 10/28/18. by me.

A new day has begun,
You’re still sustaining us,
You let our life continue,
You give us all we have.

God, blessed be Your name
In all the Earth and in Heaven,
You’re worthy to be praised,
You deserve all the glory.

Open my heart and fill it
With sincere praise to You,
I want to worship You alone
For all that You have done.

Fill my mouth with thanksgiving,
I want to give what You deserve,
Fill my soul with joy in You, Lord,
I want to always glorify You.

When it feels like my mind’s in a haze
I turn to You to clear my mind, Lord,
For I know You care about me,
You give me the clarity I need.

With You I can can face all things,
You’re always right there with me,
I’m never alone, I have You
And You have me always.

Satan lies, deceives, corrupts,
He tries to trip me up daily,
Wants to steal all from me
That’s important in this life.

Satan wants to destroy
Everything I hold dear,
He wants me to lose joy,
He wants me to doubt You.

I find rest for my soul
In You alone, O Lord,
You’re my everything,
I need You the most.

God, You alone have saved me
I was dead in sins, my sinful self,
You’ve given me new life in Christ,
You’ve given me joy and purpose.

You reached down into the darkness,
You pulled me out of my grave,
You saved me from my sinful self,
I was dead without You for so long.

You took me out of the kingdom of darkness
And transfered me into Your kingdom of life,
You saved me, made me Your child,
I’m a saint, a sinner redeemed by Christ.

Nothing’s better than being loved by You.
God, nothing’s better than loving You.
Nothing’s more important in this life than
Obeying, loving, trusting, and worshiping You.

I’m calling out Your name,
I know that You can hear me,
You’re always near, never too far,
I’m never alone, You’re with me.

God, sometimes I want to hear You speak
With a voice of thunder undeniable,
But would I be on my knees when I hear
Or fall on my face in fear of it?

There’s so much to praise You for,
There is reason to rejoice in You,
I have found my rest and home
In You alone, my Father in Heaven.

Salvation is in Jesus Christ alone,
Remind me to always cherish it,
Restore in me the joy of Your salvation,
Renew in me a spirit of true worship.

I have found joy in You, Lord,
You are the joy I’ve looked for,
You maintain, sustain this joy,
You live in me, I am Your child.

When trials and temptations come
Help me turn to You, blessed Lord,
Seeking strength to fight, to stand,
I know You’re the God of my victory.

Sunday Praise (7) 10/21/18.

Sunday Praise (7) 10/21/18. by me.

God, You’re my Savior,
You’re my salvation,
You are God alone,
You live forevermore.

My soul will bless You,
My lips will praise You,
My heart will trust You,
My body will serve You.

My body is Your temple
And wherever I go
I know You’ll be with me,
I will never be alone.

I want to give You my all,
The best of all I have,
My mind and heart and soul,
My body and my whole life.

I want to do everything
For Your glory, O Lord,
You’re worthy and deserving,
May You be glorified always!

Teach me to praise You
Sincerely, from my heart,
Not mechanically or by routine,
Not as a dry habit but out of love.

Oh that sinners would repent,
You alone can save them,
I pray they would turn to You
And live to glorify You, Lord.

Father, help me to obey You,
I fail to do what I’m supposed to,
It’s not easy and I know that
I need You to be my strength.

Your voice is mighty, Lord,
You speak and all will tremble,
None can stand before You
Proud and claim to be pure.

Not one sin is hidden from You,
I’m completely known by You,
Despite my failures, imperfections,
You still love me, I am Yours, God.

I’m tired of hearing
The words of the scoffers.
I’m tired of seeing
The pride of the foolish.

May more hearts be filled
With thanksgiving to You
For everything You’ve done,
For everything You’re doing,
For everything You will do.

You’re my Helper, Defender,
My strength and Deliverer,
My hope and my first love,
My God and heavenly Father.

It is good for me
To draw near to You,
I have placed my hope
In You, Almighty God.

Your Word is living and active,
Your Word is truth we all need,
It’s the light for my way in life,
A lamp for the path I walk.

I come to Your Word daily
For wisdom and guidance,
You speak to me through it,
You convict me of sin by it.

I find comfort in Your Word,
I receive what You give me,
I find encouragement and hope
For today, tomorrow, every day.

In the hard times in life
I see You are my peace,
Even in my darkest days
You are with me, O Lord.

The truest victory I know,
The victory I’ve found in life
Is found in You and it is You,
You are Conqueror and Victor.

God, be my strength
To fight every day
Against temptations
That come my way.

May You be praised today
And every day by me and all
Those who know and serve You
Because we love and revere You.
