Friday’s Blessing to the Lord

“Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.” Ps. 145:3

“Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youth shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:  But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint.” Isa.40:28-31.

We started this week with a blessing and a prayer for those who put their trust in God. You will find it posted as Monday’s Blessing. Now it is time to return that blessing to the Lord who hears our cries.

“Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised…Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul. I cried unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue. If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me: But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer. Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.” Ps. 66:16-20.

IMG_0051“…and his greatness is unsearchable…Thy mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds. Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep: O LORD, thou preservest man and beast. How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures. For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light…” Ps. 36:5-9.

Prayer of Blessing to the Lord:

Almighty Father, Creator of the universe, bring all who will hear and I will declare what you have done for my soul. You, through the blood of your precious Son have cleansed me and made me whole. You have given me access to your throne through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice and resurrection. You hear my prayers in your faithful lovingkindness. You abundantly satisfy all my need and cause me to drink of your pleasures. In you I trust for there is none other like you. Thank you for attending to the voice of my prayers. In all that you have blessed me, may I return a blessing to you. Your name be praised.

Now it’s your turn to declare what He has done for you. Won’t you bless Him by blessing us, in the comments, with what He has done for you?

  1. The Isaiah 40 passage, which you quoted at the beginning of this, expresses what he has done and continues to do for me day by day. He renews my strength and he gives me the ability to keep pressing on, when I feel weak. He supplies me with all I need one day at a time to keep serving, loving, following and obeying him. So, I thank him and I praise him. For, he is an awesome God, the One and Only True God!

  2. He has taught me how to trust Him. He has used things that seem “bad” to me to work “good,” demonstrating His sovereignty, wisdom, and love. This helps me learn to embrace the “thorns in my side.”
