I DRAW NEAR TO YOU, GOD
Lord, I give thanks for Your greatness, your goodness, and your love, and I now draw near to enjoy your presence.
The Lord my God is God of gods and Lord of Lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes. He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow and loves the alien, giving him food and clothing. (Deuteronomy 10:17-18)
My soul magnifies the Lord
And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
For the Mighty One has done great things for me,
And holy is His name.
His mercy is on those who fear Him,
From generation to generation. (Luke 1:46-47, 49-50)
Take a moment to consider God’s awesome majesty and thank Him that He loves you and wants an intimate relationship with you.
THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE
I will be still and know that You are God; You will be exalted among the nations, You will be exalted in the earth. (Psalm 46:10)
You will magnify Yourself and sanctify Yourself, and You will make Yourself known in the sight of many nations, and they will know that You are the Lord. (Ezekiel 38:23)
I LISTEN TO YOUR WORDS OF TRUTH
Since I am receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, I will be thankful and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for my God is a consuming fire. (Hebrews 12:28-29)
MY RESPONSE TO YOU, LORD
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who practice His commandments have a good understanding. His praise endures forever. (Psalm 111:10)
I ask for a wise and understanding heart to discern between good and evil. (1 Kings 3:9, 12)
Lord, I thank You that You will be exalted and reverenced among the nations. I thank You that I am receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and I ask that I would have a wise and understanding heart.
