Prayer of Praise: Psalm 36: 5-10

Here’s a prayer of praise based on Psalm 36: 5-10.  Inspiration comes from The Voice translation of scripture.

Prayer of Praise
(based closely on Psalm 36: 5-10)

Your love, O God, is as immeasurable as the heavens.
Your faithfulness reaches higher than the clouds in the sky.
Your justice is like the majestic mountains—firm and unshakeable,
and your judgments are as deep as the ocean depths.
And yet, in your greatness, you care for all of creation—
people and animals alike.

How precious is your unfailing love, O God!
All humanity finds rest in your presence.
We eat and are satisfied at Your table;
we drink from the river of Your overflowing kindness.
For You alone can quench our thirst;
You alone can open our eyes and awaken our souls.

May Your love continue to grow deeply in the lives of all who know You.
May Your salvation come to all who follow in Your paths.  Amen.
