I know that you uphold the cause of the afflicted and execute justice on behalf of those in need, O Lord. I give thanks to your name and for the privilege of dwelling in your presence, for it is through Jesus Christ that we draw near to God (Psalm 140:12-13; Hebrews 7:19).
I sing praises to you, O Lord, and give thanks to your holy name for every good and perfect gift is from you (Psalm 30:4; James 1:17).
I worship you, Lord, for you are my God, the one who listens to my pleas for mercy, the strength of my salvation, and the one who is with me through all of life’s battles. For I have received mercy so that in me Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life (Psalm 140:6-7; 1 Timothy 1:16).
How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I could count them, they are more than the sand. For who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him? But praise God we have the mind of Christ (Psalm 139:17-18; 1 Corinthians 2:16).
You skillfully formed my inward parts, O Lord. You intricately knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they exist and were created (Psalm 139:13-14; Revelation 4:11).
Where can I go from you Spirit, O Lord? Where can I flee from your presence? Wherever two or three are gathered in your name, O Christ, you are there. There is no place I could go and be out from under your loving gaze (Psalm 139:7-12; Matthew 18:20).
O Lord, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it altogether. You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high; I cannot attain it. I worship you, Jesus, for you are the good shepherd. You know your own and your own know you (Psalm 139:1-6; John 10:14).
All the kings of the earth shall give you thanks, O Lord, for they have heard the words of your mouth, and they shall sing of the ways of the Lord, for great is the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory. And though you’re the Most High God, you have a special place in your heart for those who are humble (Psalm 138:4-6; James 2:1).
I thank you, Lord, for all the times I’ve called out to you and you answered and strengthened my weary soul. I thank you, Christ Jesus my Lord, for giving me the strength to do what you’ve called me to do (Psalm 138:3; 1 Timothy 1:12).
I give thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart; before the gods I sing your praise. I bow before you in worship and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your name and your word. You alone have the words of eternal life (Psalm 138:1-2; John 6:68).
