From Handbook to Prayer
The Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men
And gives them to whomever He wishes
And sets over them the lowliest of men.
I will bless the Most High
And praise and honor Him who lives forever.
His dominion is an eternal dominion,
And His kingdom endures from generation to generation.
He regards all the inhabitants of the earth as nothing,
And does as He pleases with the host of heaven
And the inhabitants of the earth.
No one can hold back His hand
Or say to Him: “What have You done?”
I praise, exalt, and honor the King of heaven,
For all His works are true, and all His ways are just,
And He is able to humble those who walk in pride. (Daniel 4:17, 34–35, 37)
Pause to express your thoughts of praise and worship.
I will cleanse them from all their iniquity they have committed against Me, and I will pardon all their iniquities which they have committed against Me, and by which they have transgressed against Me. (Jeremiah 33:8)
Ask the Spirit to search your heart and reveal any areas of unconfessed sin. Acknowledge these to the Lord and thank Him for His forgiveness.
