Day 4 of Prayer Series

Welcome to day four! In this series of prayer and praise, we are attempting to fix our gaze, or our view on God the Creator of Heaven and Earth. God who so loved the world, he gave us Jesus. Those who trust in Jesus as Lord and Savior receives forgiveness of sins and eternal life. Wow! Simply admitting that we are broken people in need of a savior and believing on Jesus and choosing to follow him all the days of our lives: we become a child of God and have new life! Amen!

What a worthy cause for praise today! Today’s hymn is “All Creatures of Our God and King”. A Hymn written long ago and still sung today in many homes, hearts and churches:

  1. All creatures of our God and King,
    Lift up your voice and with us sing,
    Alleluia! Alleluia!
    Thou burning sun with golden beam,
    Thou silver moon with softer gleam!
    • Refrain:
      O praise Him! O praise Him!
      Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
  2. Thou rushing wind that art so strong,
    Ye clouds that sail in heav’n along,
    O praise Him! Alleluia!
    Thou rising moon, in praise rejoice,
    Ye lights of evening, find a voice!
  3. Thou flowing water, pure and clear,
    Make music for thy Lord to hear,
    O praise Him! Alleluia!
    Thou fire so masterful and bright,
    That givest man both warmth and light.
  4. And all ye men of tender heart,
    Forgiving others, take your part,
    O praise Him! Alleluia!
    Ye who long pain and sorrow bear,
    Praise God and on Him cast your care!
  5. Let all things their Creator bless,
    And worship Him in humbleness,
    O praise Him! Alleluia!
    Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son,
    And praise the Spirit, Three in One!

The author is Francis of Assissi and this song was written dated in 1225 and put to music by William Draper in 1919.

Scriptures for reflection today:

For God is the King of all the earth;
Sing praises with understanding.
-Psalm 47:7

34 Let heaven and earth praise Him,
The seas and everything that moves in them
. -Psalm 69:34

Prayer: O God, Creator of all the earth, we praise you today. When we consider the stars in the night’s sky and their vastness, too great of a number to record or recount, we acknowledge that you are God. When we hear the birds singing through the day, we see that they go day by day receiving food in which they did not labor or grow, harvest and prepare. You send wind, water, and rain. Each day, mercies are new with the morning. We praise you for you alone are God and all we are and have is a gift. With the breath I receive and breathe, I praise you. Giver of Life, thank you for today. Thank you that you are with me. I am not afraid. I will trust in you. All I need for today, you will provide. Guard me and guide me in this day. I praise you for you have made me wonderfully well. You alone are able. Thank you God and King, may I live a life of praise to you, o God. Amen

Life can be full of hope and abundance; I am certain we can find it because the life we want and desire: Jesus came to give us life and we can have it abundantly! A little about me: I am a wife, first. Next, I am a mama to five children; my husband and I have four daughters and son! I love to connect and talk about things of God and look for beauty in life.
