Prayer of Praise: Psalm 104: 24-34


Here’s a prayer of praise inspired by Psalm 104: 24-34

Prayer of Praise
(based on Psalm 104: 24-34)

O Lord, what a variety of things you have made!
In wisdom you have made them all.
The earth is full of your creatures.
They all depend on you to give them food as they need it.
When you supply it, they gather it.
You open your hand to feed them, and they are richly satisfied.
But if you withdraw your presence, they are dismayed.
When You take away their breath,
the life goes out of them, and they become, again,
the dust of the earth from which you formed them at the start.

But when you send out your breath, new life is created,
and the face of the earth is made beautiful, and is renewed.

God, may Your glorious presence linger among us forever.
May You rejoice in all that you have created.
