Psalm 147

God. Abba. Father.

We sing and shout praises to you, Lord.  It is good. It is right. It is beautiful. Yes, praising you is all of that and so much more. For you are the One True God. Everything that is right in this world is by your hand.

You will bring your people back home to Jerusalem once again. You are doing what you said you would do, Jesus. You are healing the brokenhearted. You are bringing sight to the blind. You are setting the captives free. Thank you, Jesus!

God, you are immense. You know each of the stars, by name. You are mighty. We thank you that when we bow before you, you lift us up. And to those who are wicked, you dash them to the ground. Teach us to be humble. We pray for the arrogant and the self-centered. May we all know your great love and compassion by the cross of grace.

We celebrate! We praise you! You are in control of this great earth. You make the rain and snow fall from the sky. The earth obeys your commands. You are our provider. We always have enough. It is hard for us to understand this truth: You delight in us!

We are your people. We trust you. We worship you. You bless us.

You allow us to live in peace. We pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the Land of Israel. May your Kingdom come to the Land, and all the earth, as it is in heaven.

We shout praises to your holy name!

We thank you for Jesus.
