Prayer Based on Psalm 33:
Heavenly Father, we give thanks to You and we praise You as Your people, those whom You have made righteous in Christ and drawn into Your presence to know You, love You and glorify You. We praise and thank You for Your words are upright and Your works are done in faithfulness. The whole earth is indeed full of Your steadfast love and we can see it reflected in all of Your creation a d providence.
Lord, You alone are supreme and You reign over all things. You speak and it comes to be. You command and it stands firm. You have the power to bring all the plans and purposes of the nations to nothing, while establishing Your own plans and purposes for all generations. Your church is Your people, the nation You have created, the nation over which King Jesus reigns and the people You have chosen for Your heritage forever. Let Your people identify first and foremost with You as Your people and not with the passing kingdoms and nations of this world.
Father, let Your eye of favor and kindness remain on Your people to bless and protect, to guide and to grow, to teach and to redeem. Deliver us from death, which presents itself to us in many forms in this fallen world.
Our souls wait for You, O Lord. You are our help and our shield. Our hearts rejoice in You because we trust in You and will never be put to shame in You.
