Prayer of Praise: Psalm 46

Here’s a prayer of praise inspired by Psalm 46.  It was written by Alan Burrow.

(based on Psalm 46)

God our Father, we worship and thank you,
for you are our refuge and our strength.  
You are our help in times of trouble.  
Therefore we will not be moved
though the earth be moved and the mountains be piled into the sea;
though the nations roar and the peoples be in tumult,
we will not be moved.  
For through Christ and the Spirit
you have made a river of life that makes us glad.  
You have saved us and gathered us
and made us your holy city, your tabernacle.  
You dwell in our midst; therefore we shall not be moved.  
By your presence you help us; just at the break of day you save us.  
We behold your works, and we praise you.  
You make desolations in the earth.  
You make wars to cease.  
You break the bow and cut the spear in two
and cast the chariot into the fire.  
You are God and God alone.  
You shall be exalted in your people;
you shall be exalted in all the earth.
Receive our worship and our thanks
by the Holy Spirit and in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ,
whom we worship with you,
and who with you live and reign above,
world without end.  Amen.
