ā€œLet them praise the name of the Lord, for His name alone is exalted;
His glory is above the earth and heaven. 
And He has exalted the horn of His people, the praise of all His saints
ā€“ of the children of Israel, a people near to Him. Praise the Lord!ā€  (Psalm 148:13-14)

No matter the circumstances in
this world, the Lord is still the One who has made all things.  No matter what people say, the Lord is still
the One who has put all things in their proper order.  No matter what people do, the Lord is worthy
of all praise and honor.  Look to the One
through whom all things have their being and be led by Him in a life filled
with praise and thanksgiving.

Lord, teach me to worship.  Let
me not be carried away with the opinions of men, but led by Your Word of
truth.   Guide me in a proper life of
praise that I may humbly walk in Your presence. 
Guide me according to Your purposes that I may now and always abide in
You and You in me.  Lift me up out of the
noise of this world to stand now and always in Your presence.

Lead me, Holy Spirit, throughout
the day to ponder and reflect upon the goodness and majesty of all that has
been created.  Then lead me to worship
the One who has caused all things to be. 
Teach me to worship in spirit and truth and guide me according to Your
eternal purposes.  Show me the way of
everlasting life that I may now and always abide in Your guidance and
presence.  Amen.
