made for His glory

living in pursuit of that

A Prayer of Praise

Posted by hrgarippa on 2 April, 2009

Thank you, Father, that You so loved the world that You gave Your one and only Son, our Lord Jesus Christ…that when the time had fully come, He wrapped Himself in human form, being born as a helpless baby in a poor family. Thank you that He walked here on earth radiating the brightness of Your glory and flawlessly expressing Your nature…and so, through Him, people saw You in action, involved with them, available to meet their needs. Thank you that He focused Your almighty power into the lives of common people with deep needs, just like me…that He preached the gospel to the poor, proclaimed freedom to prisoners of sin and recovery of sight to the blind, and set free the oppressed victims of sin and Satan – the downtrodden, the lost, the hurting, the broken. Thank you for the way He rebuked the arrogant and looked with favor on the humble-minded, opening wide the door of His kingdom to those who were destitute and helpless in spirit. I delight in Your tender mercies, O my God, by which the Sunrise from on high has come to us!

Thank you that through the Gospels I can watch this beloved One walk among ordinary people. I can hear the gracious words that came from His lips. I can see His compassion and tenderness toward needy people, His anger at hypocrisy, His faithfulness, His intense love for His followers.

Fairest Lord Jesus! You alone are my heart’s desire…my chief delight…my soul’s glory, joy and crown. Every advantage life can offer is like rubbish compared with the overwhelming gain of knowing You. You are worthy, Lord – worthy to be thanked and praised and worshipped and adored.
