Psalm 103

Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.

Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.

We lift our hearts, our minds, our voices, and our lives to you, O God, our Father and our Savior.  We praise      you from our inmost being. And as we are gathered to worship you, we do not forget all your benefits.

You, O God, forgive all our sins. And we need forgiveness.

You, O God, heal all our diseases.  And we need your healing.

You, O God, redeem our lives from the pit and you crown us with love and compassion. And this we need.

You, O God, satisfy our desires with good things, so that we are renewed over and over. And yes,                  Lord, we need to be renewed.

We give thanks to You, for you have made known your ways to us and have shown us in Christ how to live a holy and good life.

We give thanks to You, for you are compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.

We give thanks to You, for you do not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according the wrongs we have done.  For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is you love for all who fear you.  And as far as the east is from the west, so far have you removed our great sin from us.

As a father has compassion on his children, so You, o Lord, have compassion upon us.  You know how we are made, and remember that we are dust, that our days are limited and that all of us will face death.  But, You O Lord, are eternal, and your love is from everlasting to everlasting.  And your goodness is with our children’s children.

Because of you great love and your many mercies, we trust in you God.  Hear our prayers today for:

  • family members and marriages
  • friends and loved ones
  • the poor and those in need
  • Christian witness throughout the world
  • the needs of the world

Therefore we join all the angels and heavenly hosts and all your servants everywhere, with all that you have made to praise and worship you this day.  Praise the Lord, O my soul.  Hear us O Lord, we praise you!   Amen.
