Prayer Based on Psalm 29
Monday Psalm 29: v 1-2
“Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the splendour of his holiness.”
Heavenly Father, we come to worship and praise You for You alone are worthy of all our praise. You are above all other beings, awesome in might and power and transcendent in holiness. You are great and greatly to be praised, the creator and sustainer of all. You are sovereign, majestic, awe-inspiring and eternal. Today we join with the voices of earth and heaven to praise Your glorious name. Amen.
Tuesday Psalm 29: 3-5
“The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord thunders over the mighty waters. The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic. The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon. “
Heavenly Father, we praise You that we can hear Your voice in its many tones and accents. We thank You that we can experience something of Your power and strength and might as we look in awe on the world You have created, the surging waves of the sea, the mighty oaks and strong tall cedar trees and in the thundering of a storm. We praise You our unshakeable God.
Wednesday Psalm 29: 6-8
“He makes Lebanon leap like a calf, Sirion like a young wild ox. The voice of the Lord strikes with flashes of lightning. The voice of the Lord shakes the desert; the Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh.”
Heavenly Father, please help us today to hear Your voice above all others that call out to us. Help us to see Your strength, might and power and to recognise Your great glory and majesty. Thank You that You are interested in each one of us. Please attune our ears to hear Your voice so that we may live humbly and walk wisely and come to You in reverent worship. Amen.

Heavenly Father, we recognise how much we need Your strength today and every day. We pray today for strength to persevere when our work seems hard and tedious, strength to deal with disappointments graciously and to press on even when we feel discouraged.

We pray that You would continue to provide us with Your perfect peace that passes man’s understanding and that our peace in You will never be shaken.
