Let sinners be consumed from the earth and let the wicked be no more. Bless the Lord, O my soul. Praise the Lord!” (Psalm 104:35)
Lord, I am a sinner, but in the promise of the redemption by grace in Christ I am a new creation. Let me see the upward path You have prepared for those to whom You have given eyes to see. Lead me according to Your will to praise, thank and bless You in all things and for all things. Let my heart be transformed by You to become one that is full of praise and thanksgiving now and forever.
This world is difficult, Lord. There are so many obstacles and barriers that get in the way. In spite of these things, You have granted great promises through grace to those who learn to love You. Guide me now and always to walk in the way of praise and thanksgiving. Lead me to see in You the hope of all eternity and to not waver from walking the good path You have set before me.
Holy Spirit, by the example of Christ, help me to live this day and every day in praise and thanksgiving for the gift of life. No matter what happens, guide me to see through Your leading the hope that is always before me. Let not my circumstances ever hinder me from seeing the truth that eternity is before me. You are good, and it is right and salutary to always offer You praise and thanksgiving. Amen.
