Oh Lord, thank You for all that You do for me, God. Surely, Your mercy endures forever. As I rest in Your presence at this hour, do I sing out in praises to Your great Name. I exalt You, Lord. Let Your Name be lifted high. Here my voice and acknowledge me this day. Give ear to my words, for I am Yours. Above all else do I wish that You would do a work in my life. I do not wish to have my flesh get in the way of accomplishing Your will any longer. I acknowledge that You, Jesus, is my Savior and my Lord. Remember me now and forever, as I seek You each day in the Bible, prayer, and in doing good towards others. I will follow You wherever You lead me. Take my hand and guide my path in the ways of righteousness. Holy, holy, is Your Name, and I wish to dwell only in Your holiness. Make in me a clean heart, where the Holy Spirit can dwell in. I have cleaned out my closets so that nothing can come before You any longer. But if there is anything left in me that still defiles me, destroy it. Make me pure before You, so that the devil will no longer have his way in my life. Lead me from temptation, dear God. Build me up in Your armor, that I may fight the enemy with the Word of God, which is my sword and shield. I pray that I may not fall victim to the enemy, but always be found in Your arms. I am truly sorry, if I have wronged You, and wish to be made whole, once again. I love You more than this world can offer me. I know that the things that I can obtain in the flesh are only temporary, and my desire is to have Your love in my life at all times. Your joy is eternal, which overwhelms my soul with gladness. Thank You for delivering to me Your peace and Your mercy. I am forgiven because You are merciful and gracious to allow me into Your fold. I love You, Lord. You are my God and the rock upon which I stand. Amen.
2 Chronicles 5:12-14 (KJV)
12 Also the Levites which were the singers, all of them of Asaph, of Heman, of Jeduthun, with their sons and their brethren, being arrayed in white linen, having cymbals and psalteries and harps, stood at the east end of the altar, and with them an hundred and twenty priests sounding with trumpets:)
13 It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the Lord, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the Lord;
14 So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of God.
Give praise to the Lord. Sing mightily, for the Lord Jesus has come to save us. Give thanks, for God's mercy endures forever.
