Our Prayer…..

Psalm 33

 1-3 Good people, cheer God! Right-living people sound best when praising.
   Use guitars to reinforce your Hallelujahs!
      Play his praise on a grand piano!
   Invent your own new song to him;
      give him a trumpet fanfare.

 4-5 For God‘s Word is solid to the core;
      everything he makes is sound inside and out.
   He loves it when everything fits,
      when his world is in plumb-line true.
   Earth is drenched
      in God‘s affectionate satisfaction.

 6-7 The skies were made by God‘s command;
      he breathed the word and the stars popped out.
   He scooped Sea into his jug,
      put Ocean in his keg.

 8-9 Earth-creatures, bow before God;
      world-dwellers—down on your knees!
   Here’s why: he spoke and there it was,
      in place the moment he said so.

 10-12 God takes the wind out of Babel pretense,
      he shoots down the world’s power-schemes.
   God‘s plan for the world stands up,
      all his designs are made to last.
   Blessed is the country with God for God;
      blessed are the people he’s put in his will.

 13-15 From high in the skies God looks around,
      he sees all Adam’s brood.
   From where he sits
      he overlooks all us earth-dwellers.
   He has shaped each person in turn;
      now he watches everything we do.

 16-17 No king succeeds with a big army alone,
      no warrior wins by brute strength.
   Horsepower is not the answer;
      no one gets by on muscle alone.

 18-19 Watch this: God’s eye is on those who respect him,
      the ones who are looking for his love.
   He’s ready to come to their rescue in bad times;
      in lean times he keeps body and soul together.

 20-22 We’re depending on God;
      he’s everything we need.
   What’s more, our hearts brim with joy
      since we’ve taken for our own his holy name.
   Love us, God, with all you’ve got—
      that’s what we’re depending on.

  1. Best location for you right now is DEPENDING ON GOD 100%. Can’t go wrong with that. You know it. Love you guys!!!

  2. Awesome. For the last 2 or 3 years now – one of the ways God has really ministered to me personally is to have me take a passage from His Word, and re-write it in my own words. I could never do it as well as Paul or those guys… but it has really been incredible fo me. It like – makes it even more alive, I can’t exactly explain it. Anyway, thanks for the blog… thanks for your heart!
