Summer in The Psalms | Week 2

Psalms of Praise

How can we truly know God? The psalmist points us to God’s glory in creation and His revealed truth in Scripture, calling for us to respond with both our words and our whole hearts. True praise is the response to God’s revelation!

 

Day 1

“The heavens declare the glory of God, and the expanse proclaims the work of his hands.” – Psalm 19:1

Prayer: Lord, we acknowledge You as our mighty Creator. You are sovereign over all things. Today, and every day, give us eyes to witness Your glory and perfection. Give us words to profess the things You reveal to us as we share the gospel with others.

 

Day 2

“You turned my lament into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, so that I can sing to you and not be silent. Lord my God, I will praise you forever.” – Psalm 30:11-12

Prayer: God, You anoint me with joy in the midst of my despair. You turn my tears and sorrow into song and dance. May my lips continually praise Your name.

 

Day 3

“So I gaze on you in the sanctuary to see your strength and your glory. My lips will glorify you because your faithful love is better than life.” – Psalm 63:2-3

Prayer: You have demonstrated Your love. You have shown me Your power and glory. I am humbled before You, Father. May my life forever praise You and my lips never stop glorifying Your name.

 

Day 4

“So I will bless you as long as I live; at your name, I will lift up my hands.You satisfy me as with rich food; my mouth will praise you with joyful lips.” – Psalm 63:4-5

Prayer: As long as I have life and breath, I will thank You for all You have done for me. I look to You and worship You alone. You fill my longings, like no one else can. I will praise You through music and song.

 

Day 5

“The Lord is great and is highly praised; his greatness is unsearchable. One generation will declare your works to the next and will proclaim your mighty acts.” – Psalm 145:3-4

Prayer: With a shout of praise, we declare that You alone are worthy of all blessing, honor, and glory. Bring to my heart one person that I share Your awesome kindness with this day.

 

Day 6

“Hallelujah! Praise God in his sanctuary. Praise him in his mighty expanse. Praise him for his powerful acts; praise him for his abundant greatness.” – Psalm 150:1-2

Prayer: Lord, You are completely and wholly worthy of my praise. Today, I praise You for the powerful ways You’ve shown up when I needed You most. I praise You also in the moments when I haven’t seen You moving. Even then, You are still sovereign and abundantly great.

 

Day 7

Take Time To Reflect: Meditate on this past week’s Psalms. Focus on how we can praise God daily, whether it’s on a Sunday morning or during the mundane moments of our week.
