Prayer #1) Ezr 9:6 and I said, "O my God, I am ashamed and embarrassed to lift up my face to You, my God, for our iniquities have risen above our heads and our guilt has grown even to the heavens. Ezr 9:7 "Since the days of our fathers to this day we have been in great guilt, and on account of our iniquities we, our kings and our priests have been given into the hand of the kings of the lands, to the sword, to captivity and to plunder and to open shame, as it is this day. Ezr 9:8 "But now for a brief moment grace has been shown from the LORD our God, to leave us an escaped remnant and to give us a peg in His holy place, that our God may enlighten our eyes and grant us a little reviving in our bondage. Ezr 9:9 "For we are slaves; yet in our bondage our God has not forsaken us, but has extended lovingkindness to us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to give us reviving to raise up the house of our God, to restore its ruins and to give us a wall in Judah and Jerusalem. Ezr 9:10 "Now, our God, what shall we say after this? For we have forsaken Your commandments, Ezr 9:11 which You have commanded by Your servants the prophets, saying, 'The land which you are entering to possess is an unclean land with the uncleanness of the peoples of the lands, with their abominations which have filled it from end to end and with their impurity. Ezr 9:12 'So now do not give your daughters to their sons nor take their daughters to your sons, and never seek their peace or their prosperity, that you may be strong and eat the good things of the land and leave it as an inheritance to your sons forever.' Ezr 9:13 "After all that has come upon us for our evil deeds and our great guilt, since You our God have requited us less than our iniquities deserve, and have given us an escaped remnant as this, Ezr 9:14 shall we again break Your commandments and intermarry with the peoples who commit these abominations? Would You not be angry with us to the point of destruction, until there is no remnant nor any who escape? Ezr 9:15 "O LORD God of Israel, You are righteous, for we have been left an escaped remnant, as it is this day; behold, we are before You in our guilt, for no one can stand before You because of this."
Prayer #2) Neh 1:5 I said, "I beseech You, O LORD God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who preserves the covenant and lovingkindness for those who love Him and keep His commandments, Neh 1:6 let Your ear now be attentive and Your eyes open to hear the prayer of Your servant which I am praying before You now, day and night, on behalf of the sons of Israel Your servants, confessing the sins of the sons of Israel which we have sinned against You; I and my father's house have sinned. Neh 1:7 "We have acted very corruptly against You and have not kept the commandments, nor the statutes, nor the ordinances which You commanded Your servant Moses. Neh 1:8 "Remember the word which You commanded Your servant Moses, saying, 'If you are unfaithful I will scatter you among the peoples; Neh 1:9 but if you return to Me and keep My commandments and do them, though those of you who have been scattered were in the most remote part of the heavens, I will gather them from there and will bring them to the place where I have chosen to cause My name to dwell.' Neh 1:10 "They are Your servants and Your people whom You redeemed by Your great power and by Your strong hand. Neh 1:11 "O Lord, I beseech You, may Your ear be attentive to the prayer of Your servant and the prayer of Your servants who delight to revere Your name, and make Your servant successful today and grant him compassion before this man." Now I was the cupbearer to the king.
Prayer #3) Dan 9:3 So I gave my attention to the Lord God to seek Him by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth and ashes. Dan 9:4 I prayed to the LORD my God and confessed and said, "Alas, O Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and lovingkindness for those who love Him and keep His commandments, Dan 9:5 we have sinned, committed iniquity, acted wickedly and rebelled, even turning aside from Your commandments and ordinances. Dan 9:6 "Moreover, we have not listened to Your servants the prophets, who spoke in Your name to our kings, our princes, our fathers and all the people of the land. Dan 9:7 "Righteousness belongs to You, O Lord, but to us open shame, as it is this day—to the men of Judah, the inhabitants of Jerusalem and all Israel, those who are nearby and those who are far away in all the countries to which You have driven them, because of their unfaithful deeds which they have committed against You. Dan 9:8 "Open shame belongs to us, O Lord, to our kings, our princes and our fathers, because we have sinned against You. Dan 9:9 "To the Lord our God belong compassion and forgiveness, for we have rebelled against Him; Dan 9:10 nor have we obeyed the voice of the LORD our God, to walk in His teachings which He set before us through His servants the prophets. Dan 9:11 "Indeed all Israel has transgressed Your law and turned aside, not obeying Your voice; so the curse has been poured out on us, along with the oath which is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, for we have sinned against Him. Dan 9:12 "Thus He has confirmed His words which He had spoken against us and against our rulers who ruled us, to bring on us great calamity; for under the whole heaven there has not been done anything like what was done to Jerusalem. Dan 9:13 "As it is written in the law of Moses, all this calamity has come on us; yet we have not sought the favor of the LORD our God by turning from our iniquity and giving attention to Your truth. Dan 9:14 "Therefore the LORD has kept the calamity in store and brought it on us; for the LORD our God is righteous with respect to all His deeds which He has done, but we have not obeyed His voice. Dan 9:15 "And now, O Lord our God, who have brought Your people out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand and have made a name for Yourself, as it is this day—we have sinned, we have been wicked. Dan 9:16 "O Lord, in accordance with all Your righteous acts, let now Your anger and Your wrath turn away from Your city Jerusalem, Your holy mountain; for because of our sins and the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and Your people have become a reproach to all those around us. Dan 9:17 "So now, our God, listen to the prayer of Your servant and to his supplications, and for Your sake, O Lord, let Your face shine on Your desolate sanctuary. Dan 9:18 "O my God, incline Your ear and hear! Open Your eyes and see our desolations and the city which is called by Your name; for we are not presenting our supplications before You on account of any merits of our own, but on account of Your great compassion. Dan 9:19 "O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and take action! For Your own sake, O my God, do not delay, because Your city and Your people are called by Your name."
Prayer #4) Eph 3:14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, Eph 3:15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, Eph 3:16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, Eph 3:17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, Eph 3:18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, Eph 3:19 and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God. Eph 3:20 Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, Eph 3:21 to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.
Prayer #5) ol 1:9 For this reason also, since the day we heard of it, we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, Col 1:10 so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; Col 1:11 strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously Col 1:12 giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light. Col 1:13 For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, Col 1:14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. The Preeminence of Christ Col 1:15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. Col 1:16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. Col 1:17 He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. Col 1:18 He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything.
Prayer #7) Psa 26 Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have walked in my integrity, And I have trusted in the LORD without wavering. Psa 26:2 Examine me, O LORD, and try me; Test my mind and my heart. Psa 26:3 For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes, And I have walked in Your truth. Psa 26:4 I do not sit with deceitful men, Nor will I go with pretenders. Psa 26:5 I hate the assembly of evildoers, And I will not sit with the wicked. Psa 26:6 I shall wash my hands in innocence, And I will go about Your altar, O LORD, Psa 26:7 That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving And declare all Your wonders. Psa 26:8 O LORD, I love the habitation of Your house And the place where Your glory dwells. Psa 26:9 Do not take my soul away along with sinners, Nor my life with men of bloodshed, Psa 26:10 In whose hands is a wicked scheme, And whose right hand is full of bribes. Psa 26:11 But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity; Redeem me, and be gracious to me. Psa 26:12 My foot stands on a level place; In the congregations I shall bless the LORD.
Prayer #8) Psa 35 Contend, O LORD, with those who contend with me; Fight against those who fight against me. Psa 35:2 Take hold of buckler and shield And rise up for my help. Psa 35:3 Draw also the spear and the battle-axe to meet those who pursue me; Say to my soul, "I am your salvation." Psa 35:4 Let those be ashamed and dishonored who seek my life; Let those be turned back and humiliated who devise evil against me. Psa 35:5 Let them be like chaff before the wind, With the angel of the LORD driving them on. Psa 35:6 Let their way be dark and slippery, With the angel of the LORD pursuing them. Psa 35:7 For without cause they hid their net for me; Without cause they dug a pit for my soul. Psa 35:8 Let destruction come upon him unawares, And let the net which he hid catch himself; Into that very destruction let him fall. Psa 35:9 And my soul shall rejoice in the LORD; It shall exult in His salvation. Psa 35:10 All my bones will say, "LORD, who is like You, Who delivers the afflicted from him who is too strong for him, And the afflicted and the needy from him who robs him?" Psa 35:11 Malicious witnesses rise up; They ask me of things that I do not know. Psa 35:12 They repay me evil for good, To the bereavement of my soul. Psa 35:13 But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth; I humbled my soul with fasting, And my prayer kept returning to my bosom. Psa 35:14 I went about as though it were my friend or brother; I bowed down mourning, as one who sorrows for a mother. Psa 35:15 But at my stumbling they rejoiced and gathered themselves together; The smiters whom I did not know gathered together against me, They slandered me without ceasing. Psa 35:16 Like godless jesters at a feast, They gnashed at me with their teeth. Psa 35:17 Lord, how long will You look on? Rescue my soul from their ravages, My only life from the lions. Psa 35:18 I will give You thanks in the great congregation; I will praise You among a mighty throng. Psa 35:19 Do not let those who are wrongfully my enemies rejoice over me; Nor let those who hate me without cause wink maliciously. Psa 35:20 For they do not speak peace, But they devise deceitful words against those who are quiet in the land. Psa 35:21 They opened their mouth wide against me; They said, "Aha, aha, our eyes have seen it!" Psa 35:22 You have seen it, O LORD, do not keep silent; O Lord, do not be far from me. Psa 35:23 Stir up Yourself, and awake to my right And to my cause, my God and my Lord. Psa 35:24 Judge me, O LORD my God, according to Your righteousness, And do not let them rejoice over me. Psa 35:25 Do not let them say in their heart, "Aha, our desire!" Do not let them say, "We have swallowed him up!" Psa 35:26 Let those be ashamed and humiliated altogether who rejoice at my distress; Let those be clothed with shame and dishonor who magnify themselves over me. Psa 35:27 Let them shout for joy and rejoice, who favor my vindication; And let them say continually, "The LORD be magnified, Who delights in the prosperity of His servant." Psa 35:28 And my tongue shall declare Your righteousness And Your praise all day long.
Prayer #9) Psa 43:1 Vindicate me, O God, and plead my case against an ungodly nation; O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man! Psa 43:2 For You are the God of my strength; why have You rejected me? Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy? Psa 43:3 O send out Your light and Your truth, let them lead me; Let them bring me to Your holy hill And to Your dwelling places. Psa 43:4 Then I will go to the altar of God, To God my exceeding joy; And upon the lyre I shall praise You, O God, my God. Psa 43:5 Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why are you disturbed within me? Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him, The help of my countenance and my God.
Prayer #10) Psa 54:1 For the choir director; on stringed instruments. A Maskil of David, when the Ziphites came and said to Saul, "Is not David hiding himself among us?" Save me, O God, by Your name, And vindicate me by Your power. Psa 54:2 Hear my prayer, O God; Give ear to the words of my mouth. Psa 54:3 For strangers have risen against me And violent men have sought my life; They have not set God before them. Selah. Psa 54:4 Behold, God is my helper; The Lord is the sustainer of my soul. Psa 54:5 He will recompense the evil to my foes; Destroy them in Your faithfulness. Psa 54:6 Willingly I will sacrifice to You; I will give thanks to Your name, O LORD, for it is good. Psa 54:7 For He has delivered me from all trouble, And my eye has looked with satisfaction upon my enemies.
Prayer #11) Save Me, O God Psa 69:1 For the choir director; according to Shoshannim. A Psalm of David. Save me, O God, For the waters have threatened my life. Psa 69:2 I have sunk in deep mire, and there is no foothold; I have come into deep waters, and a flood overflows me. Psa 69:3 I am weary with my crying; my throat is parched; My eyes fail while I wait for my God. Psa 69:4 Those who hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head; Those who would destroy me are powerful, being wrongfully my enemies; What I did not steal, I then have to restore. Psa 69:5 O God, it is You who knows my folly, And my wrongs are not hidden from You. Psa 69:6 May those who wait for You not be ashamed through me, O Lord GOD of hosts; May those who seek You not be dishonored through me, O God of Israel, Psa 69:7 Because for Your sake I have borne reproach; Dishonor has covered my face. Psa 69:8 I have become estranged from my brothers And an alien to my mother's sons. Psa 69:9 For zeal for Your house has consumed me, And the reproaches of those who reproach You have fallen on me. Psa 69:10 When I wept in my soul with fasting, It became my reproach. Psa 69:11 When I made sackcloth my clothing, I became a byword to them. Psa 69:12 Those who sit in the gate talk about me, And I am the song of the drunkards. Psa 69:13 But as for me, my prayer is to You, O LORD, at an acceptable time; O God, in the greatness of Your lovingkindness, Answer me with Your saving truth. Psa 69:14 Deliver me from the mire and do not let me sink; May I be delivered from my foes and from the deep waters. Psa 69:15 May the flood of water not overflow me Nor the deep swallow me up, Nor the pit shut its mouth on me. Psa 69:16 Answer me, O LORD, for Your lovingkindness is good; According to the greatness of Your compassion, turn to me, Psa 69:17 And do not hide Your face from Your servant, For I am in distress; answer me quickly. Psa 69:18 Oh draw near to my soul and redeem it; Ransom me because of my enemies! Psa 69:19 You know my reproach and my shame and my dishonor; All my adversaries are before You. Psa 69:20 Reproach has broken my heart and I am so sick. And I looked for sympathy, but there was none, And for comforters, but I found none. Psa 69:21 They also gave me gall for my food And for my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink. Psa 69:22 May their table before them become a snare; And when they are in peace, may it become a trap. Psa 69:23 May their eyes grow dim so that they cannot see, And make their loins shake continually. Psa 69:24 Pour out Your indignation on them, And may Your burning anger overtake them. Psa 69:25 May their camp be desolate; May none dwell in their tents. Psa 69:26 For they have persecuted him whom You Yourself have smitten, And they tell of the pain of those whom You have wounded. Psa 69:27 Add iniquity to their iniquity, And may they not come into Your righteousness. Psa 69:28 May they be blotted out of the book of life And may they not be recorded with the righteous. Psa 69:29 But I am afflicted and in pain; May Your salvation, O God, set me securely on high. Psa 69:30 I will praise the name of God with song And magnify Him with thanksgiving. Psa 69:31 And it will please the LORD better than an ox Or a young bull with horns and hoofs. Psa 69:32 The humble have seen it and are glad; You who seek God, let your heart revive. Psa 69:33 For the LORD hears the needy And does not despise His who are prisoners. Psa 69:34 Let heaven and earth praise Him, The seas and everything that moves in them. Psa 69:35 For God will save Zion and build the cities of Judah, That they may dwell there and possess it. Psa 69:36 The descendants of His servants will inherit it, And those who love His name will dwell in it.
Prayer #12) Help Me, O Lord My God Psa 109:1 For the choir director. A Psalm of David. O God of my praise, Do not be silent! Psa 109:2 For they have opened the wicked and deceitful mouth against me; They have spoken against me with a lying tongue. Psa 109:3 They have also surrounded me with words of hatred, And fought against me without cause. Psa 109:4 In return for my love they act as my accusers; But I am in prayer. Psa 109:5 Thus they have repaid me evil for good And hatred for my love. Psa 109:6 Appoint a wicked man over him, And let an accuser stand at his right hand. Psa 109:7 When he is judged, let him come forth guilty, And let his prayer become sin. Psa 109:8 Let his days be few; Let another take his office. Psa 109:9 Let his children be fatherless And his wife a widow. Psa 109:10 Let his children wander about and beg; And let them seek sustenance far from their ruined homes. Psa 109:11 Let the creditor seize all that he has, And let strangers plunder the product of his labor. Psa 109:12 Let there be none to extend lovingkindness to him, Nor any to be gracious to his fatherless children. Psa 109:13 Let his posterity be cut off; In a following generation let their name be blotted out. Psa 109:14 Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the LORD, And do not let the sin of his mother be blotted out. Psa 109:15 Let them be before the LORD continually, That He may cut off their memory from the earth; Psa 109:16 Because he did not remember to show lovingkindness, But persecuted the afflicted and needy man, And the despondent in heart, to put them to death. Psa 109:17 He also loved cursing, so it came to him; And he did not delight in blessing, so it was far from him. Psa 109:18 But he clothed himself with cursing as with his garment, And it entered into his body like water And like oil into his bones. Psa 109:19 Let it be to him as a garment with which he covers himself, And for a belt with which he constantly girds himself. Psa 109:20 Let this be the reward of my accusers from the LORD, And of those who speak evil against my soul. Psa 109:21 But You, O GOD, the Lord, deal kindly with me for Your name's sake; Because Your lovingkindness is good, deliver me; Psa 109:22 For I am afflicted and needy, And my heart is wounded within me. Psa 109:23 I am passing like a shadow when it lengthens; I am shaken off like the locust. Psa 109:24 My knees are weak from fasting, And my flesh has grown lean, without fatness. Psa 109:25 I also have become a reproach to them; When they see me, they wag their head. Psa 109:26 Help me, O LORD my God; Save me according to Your lovingkindness. Psa 109:27 And let them know that this is Your hand; You, LORD, have done it. Psa 109:28 Let them curse, but You bless; When they arise, they shall be ashamed, But Your servant shall be glad. Psa 109:29 Let my accusers be clothed with dishonor, And let them cover themselves with their own shame as with a robe. Psa 109:30 With my mouth I will give thanks abundantly to the LORD; And in the midst of many I will praise Him. Psa 109:31 For He stands at the right hand of the needy, To save him from those who judge his soul.

Prayer #14) ct 4:24 And when they heard this, they lifted their voices to God with one accord and said, "O Lord, it is You who MADE THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH AND THE SEA, AND ALL THAT IS IN THEM, Act 4:25 who by the Holy Spirit, through the mouth of our father David Your servant, said, 'WHY DID THE GENTILES RAGE, AND THE PEOPLES DEVISE FUTILE THINGS? Act 4:26 'THE KINGS OF THE EARTH TOOK THEIR STAND, AND THE RULERS WERE GATHERED TOGETHER AGAINST THE LORD AND AGAINST HIS CHRIST.' Act 4:27 "For truly in this city there were gathered together against Your holy servant Jesus, whom You anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel, Act 4:28 to do whatever Your hand and Your purpose predestined to occur. Act 4:29 "And now, Lord, take note of their threats, and grant that Your bond-servants may speak Your word with all confidence, Act 4:30 while You extend Your hand to heal, and signs and wonders take place through the name of Your holy servant Jesus."
Prayer #15) Hannah's Prayer 1Sa 2:1 Then Hannah prayed and said, "My heart exults in the LORD; My horn is exalted in the LORD, My mouth speaks boldly against my enemies, Because I rejoice in Your salvation. 1Sa 2:2 "There is no one holy like the LORD, Indeed, there is no one besides You, Nor is there any rock like our God. 1Sa 2:3 "Boast no more so very proudly, Do not let arrogance come out of your mouth; For the LORD is a God of knowledge, And with Him actions are weighed. 1Sa 2:4 "The bows of the mighty are shattered, But the feeble gird on strength. 1Sa 2:5 "Those who were full hire themselves out for bread, But those who were hungry cease to hunger. Even the barren gives birth to seven, But she who has many children languishes. 1Sa 2:6 "The LORD kills and makes alive; He brings down to Sheol and raises up. 1Sa 2:7 "The LORD makes poor and rich; He brings low, He also exalts. 1Sa 2:8 "He raises the poor from the dust, He lifts the needy from the ash heap To make them sit with nobles, And inherit a seat of honor; For the pillars of the earth are the LORD'S, And He set the world on them. 1Sa 2:9 "He keeps the feet of His godly ones, But the wicked ones are silenced in darkness; For not by might shall a man prevail. 1Sa 2:10 "Those who contend with the LORD will be shattered; Against them He will thunder in the heavens, The LORD will judge the ends of the earth; And He will give strength to His king, And will exalt the horn of His anointed." 1Sa 2:11 Then Elkanah went to his home at Ramah. But the boy ministered to the LORD before Eli the priest. Eli's Worthless Sons 1Sa 2:12 Now the sons of Eli were worthless men; they did not know the LORD 1Sa 2:13 and the custom of the priests with the people. When any man was offering a sacrifice, the priest's servant would come while the meat was boiling, with a three-pronged fork in his hand. 1Sa 2:14 Then he would thrust it into the pan, or kettle, or caldron, or pot; all that the fork brought up the priest would take for himself. Thus they did in Shiloh to all the Israelites who came there. 1Sa 2:15 Also, before they burned the fat, the priest's servant would come and say to the man who was sacrificing, "Give the priest meat for roasting, as he will not take boiled meat from you, only raw." 1Sa 2:16 If the man said to him, "They must surely burn the fat first, and then take as much as you desire," then he would say, "No, but you shall give it to me now; and if not, I will take it by force." 1Sa 2:17 Thus the sin of the young men was very great before the LORD, for the men despised the offering of the LORD. 1Sa 2:18 Now Samuel was ministering before the LORD, as a boy wearing a linen ephod. 1Sa 2:19 And his mother would make him a little robe and bring it to him from year to year when she would come up with her husband to offer the yearly sacrifice. 1Sa 2:20 Then Eli would bless Elkanah and his wife and say, "May the LORD give you children from this woman in place of the one she dedicated to the LORD." And they went to their own home. 1Sa 2:21 The LORD visited Hannah; and she conceived and gave birth to three sons and two daughters. And the boy Samuel grew before the LORD. Eli Rebukes His Sons 1Sa 2:22 Now Eli was very old; and he heard all that his sons were doing to all Israel, and how they lay with the women who served at the doorway of the tent of meeting. 1Sa 2:23 He said to them, "Why do you do such things, the evil things that I hear from all these people? 1Sa 2:24 "No, my sons; for the report is not good which I hear the LORD'S people circulating. 1Sa 2:25 "If one man sins against another, God will mediate for him; but if a man sins against the LORD, who can intercede for him?" But they would not listen to the voice of their father, for the LORD desired to put them to death. 1Sa 2:26 Now the boy Samuel was growing in stature and in favor both with the LORD and with men. The Lord Rejects Eli's Household 1Sa 2:27 Then a man of God came to Eli and said to him, "Thus says the LORD, 'Did I not indeed reveal Myself to the house of your father when they were in Egypt in bondage to Pharaoh's house? 1Sa 2:28 'Did I not choose them from all the tribes of Israel to be My priests, to go up to My altar, to burn incense, to carry an ephod before Me; and did I not give to the house of your father all the fire offerings of the sons of Israel? 1Sa 2:29 'Why do you kick at My sacrifice and at My offering which I have commanded in My dwelling, and honor your sons above Me, by making yourselves fat with the choicest of every offering of My people Israel?' 1Sa 2:30 "Therefore the LORD God of Israel declares, 'I did indeed say that your house and the house of your father should walk before Me forever'; but now the LORD declares, 'Far be it from Me—for those who honor Me I will honor, and those who despise Me will be lightly esteemed. 1Sa 2:31 'Behold, the days are coming when I will break your strength and the strength of your father's house so that there will not be an old man in your house. 1Sa 2:32 'You will see the distress of My dwelling, in spite of all the good that I do for Israel; and an old man will not be in your house forever. 1Sa 2:33 'Yet I will not cut off every man of yours from My altar so that your eyes will fail from weeping and your soul grieve, and all the increase of your house will die in the prime of life. 1Sa 2:34 'This will be the sign to you which will come concerning your two sons, Hophni and Phinehas: on the same day both of them will die. 1Sa 2:35 'But I will raise up for Myself a faithful priest who will do according to what is in My heart and in My soul; and I will build him an enduring house, and he will walk before My anointed always. 1Sa 2:36 'Everyone who is left in your house will come and bow down to him for a piece of silver or a loaf of bread and say, "Please assign me to one of the priest's offices so that I may eat a piece of bread."'"

Psa 9:2 I will be glad and exult in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High. Psa 9:3 When my enemies turn back, They stumble and perish before You. Psa 9:4 For You have maintained my just cause; You have sat on the throne judging righteously. Psa 9:5 You have rebuked the nations, You have destroyed the wicked; You have blotted out their name forever and ever. Psa 9:6 The enemy has come to an end in perpetual ruins, And You have uprooted the cities; The very memory of them has perished. Psa 9:7 But the LORD abides forever; He has established His throne for judgment, Psa 9:8 And He will judge the world in righteousness; He will execute judgment for the peoples with equity.

Prayer #22) The Lord Is My Rock and My Fortress Psa 18:1 For the choir director. A Psalm of David the servant of the LORD, who spoke to the LORD the words of this song in the day that the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. And he said, "I love You, O LORD, my strength." Psa 18:2 The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Psa 18:3 I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised, And I am saved from my enemies. Psa 18:4 The cords of death encompassed me, And the torrents of ungodliness terrified me. Psa 18:5 The cords of Sheol surrounded me; The snares of death confronted me. Psa 18:6 In my distress I called upon the LORD, And cried to my God for help; He heard my voice out of His temple, And my cry for help before Him came into His ears. Psa 18:7 Then the earth shook and quaked; And the foundations of the mountains were trembling And were shaken, because He was angry. Psa 18:8 Smoke went up out of His nostrils, And fire from His mouth devoured; Coals were kindled by it. Psa 18:9 He bowed the heavens also, and came down With thick darkness under His feet. Psa 18:10 He rode upon a cherub and flew; And He sped upon the wings of the wind. Psa 18:11 He made darkness His hiding place, His canopy around Him, Darkness of waters, thick clouds of the skies. Psa 18:12 From the brightness before Him passed His thick clouds, Hailstones and coals of fire. Psa 18:13 The LORD also thundered in the heavens, And the Most High uttered His voice, Hailstones and coals of fire. Psa 18:14 He sent out His arrows, and scattered them, And lightning flashes in abundance, and routed them. Psa 18:15 Then the channels of water appeared, And the foundations of the world were laid bare At Your rebuke, O LORD, At the blast of the breath of Your nostrils. Psa 18:16 He sent from on high, He took me; He drew me out of many waters. Psa 18:17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, And from those who hated me, for they were too mighty for me. Psa 18:18 They confronted me in the day of my calamity, But the LORD was my stay. Psa 18:19 He brought me forth also into a broad place; He rescued me, because He delighted in me. Psa 18:20 The LORD has rewarded me according to my righteousness; According to the cleanness of my hands He has recompensed me. Psa 18:21 For I have kept the ways of the LORD, And have not wickedly departed from my God. Psa 18:22 For all His ordinances were before me, And I did not put away His statutes from me. Psa 18:23 I was also blameless with Him, And I kept myself from my iniquity. Psa 18:24 Therefore the LORD has recompensed me according to my righteousness, According to the cleanness of my hands in His eyes. Psa 18:25 With the kind You show Yourself kind; With the blameless You show Yourself blameless; Psa 18:26 With the pure You show Yourself pure, And with the crooked You show Yourself astute. Psa 18:27 For You save an afflicted people, But haughty eyes You abase. Psa 18:28 For You light my lamp; The LORD my God illumines my darkness. Psa 18:29 For by You I can run upon a troop; And by my God I can leap over a wall. Psa 18:30 As for God, His way is blameless; The word of the LORD is tried; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him. Psa 18:31 For who is God, but the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God, Psa 18:32 The God who girds me with strength And makes my way blameless? Psa 18:33 He makes my feet like hinds' feet, And sets me upon my high places. Psa 18:34 He trains my hands for battle, So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze. Psa 18:35 You have also given me the shield of Your salvation, And Your right hand upholds me; And Your gentleness makes me great. Psa 18:36 You enlarge my steps under me, And my feet have not slipped. Psa 18:37 I pursued my enemies and overtook them, And I did not turn back until they were consumed. Psa 18:38 I shattered them, so that they were not able to rise; They fell under my feet. Psa 18:39 For You have girded me with strength for battle; You have subdued under me those who rose up against me. Psa 18:40 You have also made my enemies turn their backs to me, And I destroyed those who hated me. Psa 18:41 They cried for help, but there was none to save, Even to the LORD, but He did not answer them. Psa 18:42 Then I beat them fine as the dust before the wind; I emptied them out as the mire of the streets. Psa 18:43 You have delivered me from the contentions of the people; You have placed me as head of the nations; A people whom I have not known serve me. Psa 18:44 As soon as they hear, they obey me; Foreigners submit to me. Psa 18:45 Foreigners fade away, And come trembling out of their fortresses. Psa 18:46 The LORD lives, and blessed be my rock; And exalted be the God of my salvation, Psa 18:47 The God who executes vengeance for me, And subdues peoples under me. Psa 18:48 He delivers me from my enemies; Surely You lift me above those who rise up against me; You rescue me from the violent man. Psa 18:49 Therefore I will give thanks to You among the nations, O LORD, And I will sing praises to Your name. Psa 18:50 He gives great deliverance to His king, And shows lovingkindness to His anointed, To David and his descendants forever.

Psa 21:9 You will make them as a fiery oven in the time of your anger; The LORD will swallow them up in His wrath, And fire will devour them. Psa 21:10 Their offspring You will destroy from the earth, And their descendants from among the sons of men. Psa 21:11 Though they intended evil against You And devised a plot, They will not succeed. Psa 21:12 For You will make them turn their back; You will aim with Your bowstrings at their faces. Psa 21:13 Be exalted, O LORD, in Your strength; We will sing and praise Your power.
Prayer #24) Joy Comes with the Morning Psa 30:1 A Psalm; a Song at the Dedication of the House. A Psalm of David.

Psa 30:4 Sing praise to the LORD, you His godly ones, And give thanks to His holy name.

Psa 30:6 Now as for me, I said in my prosperity, "I will never be moved." Psa 30:7 O LORD, by Your favor You have made my mountain to stand strong; You hid Your face, I was dismayed. Psa 30:8 To You, O LORD, I called, And to the Lord I made supplication: Psa 30:9 "What profit is there in my blood, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your faithfulness? Psa 30:10 "Hear, O LORD, and be gracious to me; O LORD, be my helper." Psa 30:11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness, Psa 30:12 That my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
Prayer #25) Taste and See That the Lord Is Good Psa 34:1 A Psalm of David when he feigned madness before Abimelech, who drove him away and he departed. I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. Psa 34:2 My soul will make its boast in the LORD; The humble will hear it and rejoice. Psa 34:3 O magnify the LORD with me, And let us exalt His name together. Psa 34:4 I sought the LORD, and He answered me, And delivered me from all my fears. Psa 34:5 They looked to Him and were radiant, And their faces will never be ashamed. Psa 34:6 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him And saved him out of all his troubles. Psa 34:7 The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him, And rescues them. Psa 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him! Psa 34:9 O fear the LORD, you His saints; For to those who fear Him there is no want. Psa 34:10 The young lions do lack and suffer hunger; But they who seek the LORD shall not be in want of any good thing. Psa 34:11 Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD. Psa 34:12 Who is the man who desires life And loves length of days that he may see good? Psa 34:13 Keep your tongue from evil And your lips from speaking deceit. Psa 34:14 Depart from evil and do good; Seek peace and pursue it. Psa 34:15 The eyes of the LORD are toward the righteous And His ears are open to their cry. Psa 34:16 The face of the LORD is against evildoers, To cut off the memory of them from the earth. Psa 34:17 The righteous cry, and the LORD hears And delivers them out of all their troubles. Psa 34:18 The LORD is near to the brokenhearted And saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Psa 34:21 Evil shall slay the wicked, And those who hate the righteous will be condemned. Psa 34:22 The LORD redeems the soul of His servants, And none of those who take refuge in Him will be condemned.

Psa 40:2 He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay, And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm. Psa 40:3 He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God; Many will see and fear And will trust in the LORD. Psa 40:4 How blessed is the man who has made the LORD his trust, And has not turned to the proud, nor to those who lapse into falsehood. Psa 40:5 Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders which You have done, And Your thoughts toward us; There is none to compare with You. If I would declare and speak of them, They would be too numerous to count. Psa 40:6 Sacrifice and meal offering You have not desired; My ears You have opened; Burnt offering and sin offering You have not required. Psa 40:7 Then I said, "Behold, I come; In the scroll of the book it is written of me. Psa 40:8 I delight to do Your will, O my God; Your Law is within my heart." Psa 40:9 I have proclaimed glad tidings of righteousness in the great congregation; Behold, I will not restrain my lips, O LORD, You know. Psa 40:10 I have not hidden Your righteousness within my heart; I have spoken of Your faithfulness and Your salvation; I have not concealed Your lovingkindness and Your truth from the great congregation. Psa 40:11 You, O LORD, will not withhold Your compassion from me; Your lovingkindness and Your truth will continually preserve me. Psa 40:12 For evils beyond number have surrounded me; My iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to see; They are more numerous than the hairs of my head, And my heart has failed me. Psa 40:13 Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me; Make haste, O LORD, to help me. Psa 40:14 Let those be ashamed and humiliated together Who seek my life to destroy it; Let those be turned back and dishonored Who delight in my hurt. Psa 40:15 Let those be appalled because of their shame Who say to me, "Aha, aha!" Psa 40:16 Let all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; Let those who love Your salvation say continually, "The LORD be magnified!" Psa 40:17 Since I am afflicted and needy, Let the Lord be mindful of me. You are my help and my deliverer; Do not delay, O my God.

Psa 48:4 For, lo, the kings assembled themselves, They passed by together. Psa 48:5 They saw it, then they were amazed; They were terrified, they fled in alarm.

Psa 48:8 As we have heard, so have we seen In the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God; God will establish her forever. Selah.

Psa 48:12 Walk about Zion and go around her; Count her towers; Psa 48:13 Consider her ramparts; Go through her palaces, That you may tell it to the next generation. Psa 48:14 For such is God, Our God forever and ever; He will guide us until death.

Psa 66:4 "All the earth will worship You, And will sing praises to You; They will sing praises to Your name." Selah. Psa 66:5 Come and see the works of God, Who is awesome in His deeds toward the sons of men.

Psa 66:8 Bless our God, O peoples, And sound His praise abroad, Psa 66:9 Who keeps us in life And does not allow our feet to slip. Psa 66:10 For You have tried us, O God; You have refined us as silver is refined. Psa 66:11 You brought us into the net; You laid an oppressive burden upon our loins. Psa 66:12 You made men ride over our heads; We went through fire and through water, Yet You brought us out into a place of abundance. Psa 66:13 I shall come into Your house with burnt offerings; I shall pay You my vows, Psa 66:14 Which my lips uttered And my mouth spoke when I was in distress. Psa 66:15 I shall offer to You burnt offerings of fat beasts, With the smoke of rams; I shall make an offering of bulls with male goats. Selah. Psa 66:16 Come and hear, all who fear God, And I will tell of what He has done for my soul. Psa 66:17 I cried to Him with my mouth, And He was extolled with my tongue. Psa 66:18 If I regard wickedness in my heart, The Lord will not hear; Psa 66:19 But certainly God has heard; He has given heed to the voice of my prayer. Psa 66:20 Blessed be God, Who has not turned away my prayer Nor His lovingkindness from me.
Prayer #29) How Great Are Your Works Psa 92:1 A Psalm, a Song for the Sabbath day. It is good to give thanks to the LORD And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High; Psa 92:2 To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning And Your faithfulness by night, Psa 92:3 With the ten-stringed lute and with the harp, With resounding music upon the lyre. Psa 92:4 For You, O LORD, have made me glad by what You have done, I will sing for joy at the works of Your hands. Psa 92:5 How great are Your works, O LORD! Your thoughts are very deep. Psa 92:6 A senseless man has no knowledge, Nor does a stupid man understand this: Psa 92:7 That when the wicked sprouted up like grass And all who did iniquity flourished, It was only that they might be destroyed forevermore. Psa 92:8 But You, O LORD, are on high forever. Psa 92:9 For, behold, Your enemies, O LORD, For, behold, Your enemies will perish; All who do iniquity will be scattered. Psa 92:10 But You have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox; I have been anointed with fresh oil. Psa 92:11 And my eye has looked exultantly upon my foes, My ears hear of the evildoers who rise up against me. Psa 92:12 The righteous man will flourish like the palm tree, He will grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Psa 92:13 Planted in the house of the LORD, They will flourish in the courts of our God. Psa 92:14 They will still yield fruit in old age; They shall be full of sap and very green, Psa 92:15 To declare that the LORD is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
Prayer #30) Let the Redeemed of the Lord Say So Psa 107:1 Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good, For His lovingkindness is everlasting. Psa 107:2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the adversary Psa 107:3 And gathered from the lands, From the east and from the west, From the north and from the south. Psa 107:4 They wandered in the wilderness in a desert region; They did not find a way to an inhabited city. Psa 107:5 They were hungry and thirsty; Their soul fainted within them. Psa 107:6 Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble; He delivered them out of their distresses. Psa 107:7 He led them also by a straight way, To go to an inhabited city. Psa 107:8 Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness, And for His wonders to the sons of men! Psa 107:9 For He has satisfied the thirsty soul, And the hungry soul He has filled with what is good. Psa 107:10 There were those who dwelt in darkness and in the shadow of death, Prisoners in misery and chains, Psa 107:11 Because they had rebelled against the words of God And spurned the counsel of the Most High. Psa 107:12 Therefore He humbled their heart with labor; They stumbled and there was none to help. Psa 107:13 Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble; He saved them out of their distresses. Psa 107:14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death And broke their bands apart. Psa 107:15 Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness, And for His wonders to the sons of men! Psa 107:16 For He has shattered gates of bronze And cut bars of iron asunder. Psa 107:17 Fools, because of their rebellious way, And because of their iniquities, were afflicted. Psa 107:18 Their soul abhorred all kinds of food, And they drew near to the gates of death. Psa 107:19 Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble; He saved them out of their distresses. Psa 107:20 He sent His word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions. Psa 107:21 Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness, And for His wonders to the sons of men! Psa 107:22 Let them also offer sacrifices of thanksgiving, And tell of His works with joyful singing. Psa 107:23 Those who go down to the sea in ships, Who do business on great waters; Psa 107:24 They have seen the works of the LORD, And His wonders in the deep. Psa 107:25 For He spoke and raised up a stormy wind, Which lifted up the waves of the sea. Psa 107:26 They rose up to the heavens, they went down to the depths; Their soul melted away in their misery. Psa 107:27 They reeled and staggered like a drunken man, And were at their wits' end. Psa 107:28 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, And He brought them out of their distresses. Psa 107:29 He caused the storm to be still, So that the waves of the sea were hushed. Psa 107:30 Then they were glad because they were quiet, So He guided them to their desired haven. Psa 107:31 Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness, And for His wonders to the sons of men! Psa 107:32 Let them extol Him also in the congregation of the people, And praise Him at the seat of the elders. Psa 107:33 He changes rivers into a wilderness And springs of water into a thirsty ground; Psa 107:34 A fruitful land into a salt waste, Because of the wickedness of those who dwell in it. Psa 107:35 He changes a wilderness into a pool of water And a dry land into springs of water; Psa 107:36 And there He makes the hungry to dwell, So that they may establish an inhabited city, Psa 107:37 And sow fields and plant vineyards, And gather a fruitful harvest. Psa 107:38 Also He blesses them and they multiply greatly, And He does not let their cattle decrease. Psa 107:39 When they are diminished and bowed down Through oppression, misery and sorrow, Psa 107:40 He pours contempt upon princes And makes them wander in a pathless waste. Psa 107:41 But He sets the needy securely on high away from affliction, And makes his families like a flock. Psa 107:42 The upright see it and are glad; But all unrighteousness shuts its mouth. Psa 107:43 Who is wise? Let him give heed to these things, And consider the lovingkindnesses of the LORD.
Prayer #31) I Love the Lord Psa 116:1 I love the LORD, because He hears My voice and my supplications. Psa 116:2 Because He has inclined His ear to me, Therefore I shall call upon Him as long as I live. Psa 116:3 The cords of death encompassed me And the terrors of Sheol came upon me; I found distress and sorrow. Psa 116:4 Then I called upon the name of the LORD: "O LORD, I beseech You, save my life!" Psa 116:5 Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; Yes, our God is compassionate. Psa 116:6 The LORD preserves the simple; I was brought low, and He saved me. Psa 116:7 Return to your rest, O my soul, For the LORD has dealt bountifully with you. Psa 116:8 For You have rescued my soul from death, My eyes from tears, My feet from stumbling. Psa 116:9 I shall walk before the LORD In the land of the living. Psa 116:10 I believed when I said, "I am greatly afflicted." Psa 116:11 I said in my alarm, "All men are liars." Psa 116:12 What shall I render to the LORD For all His benefits toward me? Psa 116:13 I shall lift up the cup of salvation And call upon the name of the LORD. Psa 116:14 I shall pay my vows to the LORD, Oh may it be in the presence of all His people. Psa 116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD Is the death of His godly ones. Psa 116:16 O LORD, surely I am Your servant, I am Your servant, the son of Your handmaid, You have loosed my bonds. Psa 116:17 To You I shall offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving, And call upon the name of the LORD. Psa 116:18 I shall pay my vows to the LORD, Oh may it be in the presence of all His people, Psa 116:19 In the courts of the LORD'S house, In the midst of you, O Jerusalem. Praise the LORD!
Prayer #32) His Steadfast Love Endures Forever Psa 118:1 Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting. Psa 118:2 Oh let Israel say, "His lovingkindness is everlasting." Psa 118:3 Oh let the house of Aaron say, "His lovingkindness is everlasting." Psa 118:4 Oh let those who fear the LORD say, "His lovingkindness is everlasting." Psa 118:5 From my distress I called upon the LORD; The LORD answered me and set me in a large place. Psa 118:6 The LORD is for me; I will not fear; What can man do to me? Psa 118:7 The LORD is for me among those who help me; Therefore I will look with satisfaction on those who hate me. Psa 118:8 It is better to take refuge in the LORD Than to trust in man. Psa 118:9 It is better to take refuge in the LORD Than to trust in princes. Psa 118:10 All nations surrounded me; In the name of the LORD I will surely cut them off. Psa 118:11 They surrounded me, yes, they surrounded me; In the name of the LORD I will surely cut them off. Psa 118:12 They surrounded me like bees; They were extinguished as a fire of thorns; In the name of the LORD I will surely cut them off. Psa 118:13 You pushed me violently so that I was falling, But the LORD helped me. Psa 118:14 The LORD is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation. Psa 118:15 The sound of joyful shouting and salvation is in the tents of the righteous; The right hand of the LORD does valiantly. Psa 118:16 The right hand of the LORD is exalted; The right hand of the LORD does valiantly. Psa 118:17 I will not die, but live, And tell of the works of the LORD. Psa 118:18 The LORD has disciplined me severely, But He has not given me over to death. Psa 118:19 Open to me the gates of righteousness; I shall enter through them, I shall give thanks to the LORD. Psa 118:20 This is the gate of the LORD; The righteous will enter through it. Psa 118:21 I shall give thanks to You, for You have answered me, And You have become my salvation. Psa 118:22 The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief corner stone. Psa 118:23 This is the LORD'S doing; It is marvelous in our eyes. Psa 118:24 This is the day which the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psa 118:25 O LORD, do save, we beseech You; O LORD, we beseech You, do send prosperity! Psa 118:26 Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the LORD; We have blessed you from the house of the LORD. Psa 118:27 The LORD is God, and He has given us light; Bind the festival sacrifice with cords to the horns of the altar. Psa 118:28 You are my God, and I give thanks to You; You are my God, I extol You. Psa 118:29 Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
Prayer #33) Restore Our Fortunes, O Lord Psa 126:1 A Song of Ascents. When the LORD brought back the captive ones of Zion, We were like those who dream. Psa 126:2 Then our mouth was filled with laughter And our tongue with joyful shouting; Then they said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them." Psa 126:3 The LORD has done great things for us; We are glad. Psa 126:4 Restore our captivity, O LORD, As the streams in the South. Psa 126:5 Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting. Psa 126:6 He who goes to and fro weeping, carrying his bag of seed, Shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.

Psa 138:4 All the kings of the earth will give thanks to You, O LORD, When they have heard the words of Your mouth. Psa 138:5 And they will sing of the ways of the LORD, For great is the glory of the LORD. Psa 138:6 For though the LORD is exalted, Yet He regards the lowly, But the haughty He knows from afar. Psa 138:7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, And Your right hand will save me. Psa 138:8 The LORD will accomplish what concerns me; Your lovingkindness, O LORD, is everlasting; Do not forsake the works of Your hands.
Praise prayer #1) O Lord My God, You Are Very Great Psa 104:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul! O LORD my God, You are very great; You are clothed with splendor and majesty, Psa 104:2 Covering Yourself with light as with a cloak, Stretching out heaven like a tent curtain. Psa 104:3 He lays the beams of His upper chambers in the waters; He makes the clouds His chariot; He walks upon the wings of the wind; Psa 104:4 He makes the winds His messengers, Flaming fire His ministers. Psa 104:5 He established the earth upon its foundations, So that it will not totter forever and ever. Psa 104:6 You covered it with the deep as with a garment; The waters were standing above the mountains. Psa 104:7 At Your rebuke they fled, At the sound of Your thunder they hurried away. Psa 104:8 The mountains rose; the valleys sank down To the place which You established for them. Psa 104:9 You set a boundary that they may not pass over, So that they will not return to cover the earth. Psa 104:10 He sends forth springs in the valleys; They flow between the mountains; Psa 104:11 They give drink to every beast of the field; The wild donkeys quench their thirst. Psa 104:12 Beside them the birds of the heavens dwell; They lift up their voices among the branches. Psa 104:13 He waters the mountains from His upper chambers; The earth is satisfied with the fruit of His works. Psa 104:14 He causes the grass to grow for the cattle, And vegetation for the labor of man, So that he may bring forth food from the earth, Psa 104:15 And wine which makes man's heart glad, So that he may make his face glisten with oil, And food which sustains man's heart. Psa 104:16 The trees of the LORD drink their fill, The cedars of Lebanon which He planted, Psa 104:17 Where the birds build their nests, And the stork, whose home is the fir trees. Psa 104:18 The high mountains are for the wild goats; The cliffs are a refuge for the shephanim. Psa 104:19 He made the moon for the seasons; The sun knows the place of its setting. Psa 104:20 You appoint darkness and it becomes night, In which all the beasts of the forest prowl about. Psa 104:21 The young lions roar after their prey And seek their food from God. Psa 104:22 When the sun rises they withdraw And lie down in their dens. Psa 104:23 Man goes forth to his work And to his labor until evening. Psa 104:24 O LORD, how many are Your works! In wisdom You have made them all; The earth is full of Your possessions. Psa 104:25 There is the sea, great and broad, In which are swarms without number, Animals both small and great. Psa 104:26 There the ships move along, And Leviathan, which You have formed to sport in it. Psa 104:27 They all wait for You To give them their food in due season. Psa 104:28 You give to them, they gather it up; You open Your hand, they are satisfied with good. Psa 104:29 You hide Your face, they are dismayed; You take away their spirit, they expire And return to their dust. Psa 104:30 You send forth Your Spirit, they are created; And You renew the face of the ground. Psa 104:31 Let the glory of the LORD endure forever; Let the LORD be glad in His works; Psa 104:32 He looks at the earth, and it trembles; He touches the mountains, and they smoke. Psa 104:33 I will sing to the LORD as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. Psa 104:34 Let my meditation be pleasing to Him; As for me, I shall be glad in the LORD. Psa 104:35 Let sinners be consumed from the earth And let the wicked be no more. Bless the LORD, O my soul. Praise the LORD!
Praise Prayer #2) Tell of All His Wonderful Works Psa 105:1 Oh give thanks to the LORD, call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples. Psa 105:2 Sing to Him, sing praises to Him; Speak of all His wonders. Psa 105:3 Glory in His holy name; Let the heart of those who seek the LORD be glad. Psa 105:4 Seek the LORD and His strength; Seek His face continually. Psa 105:5 Remember His wonders which He has done, His marvels and the judgments uttered by His mouth, Psa 105:6 O seed of Abraham, His servant, O sons of Jacob, His chosen ones! Psa 105:7 He is the LORD our God; His judgments are in all the earth. Psa 105:8 He has remembered His covenant forever, The word which He commanded to a thousand generations, Psa 105:9 The covenant which He made with Abraham, And His oath to Isaac. Psa 105:10 Then He confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, To Israel as an everlasting covenant, Psa 105:11 Saying, "To you I will give the land of Canaan As the portion of your inheritance," Psa 105:12 When they were only a few men in number, Very few, and strangers in it. Psa 105:13 And they wandered about from nation to nation, From one kingdom to another people. Psa 105:14 He permitted no man to oppress them, And He reproved kings for their sakes: Psa 105:15 "Do not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no harm." Psa 105:16 And He called for a famine upon the land; He broke the whole staff of bread. Psa 105:17 He sent a man before them, Joseph, who was sold as a slave. Psa 105:18 They afflicted his feet with fetters, He himself was laid in irons; Psa 105:19 Until the time that his word came to pass, The word of the LORD tested him. Psa 105:20 The king sent and released him, The ruler of peoples, and set him free. Psa 105:21 He made him lord of his house And ruler over all his possessions, Psa 105:22 To imprison his princes at will, That he might teach his elders wisdom. Psa 105:23 Israel also came into Egypt; Thus Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham. Psa 105:24 And He caused His people to be very fruitful, And made them stronger than their adversaries. Psa 105:25 He turned their heart to hate His people, To deal craftily with His servants. Psa 105:26 He sent Moses His servant, And Aaron, whom He had chosen. Psa 105:27 They performed His wondrous acts among them, And miracles in the land of Ham. Psa 105:28 He sent darkness and made it dark; And they did not rebel against His words. Psa 105:29 He turned their waters into blood And caused their fish to die. Psa 105:30 Their land swarmed with frogs Even in the chambers of their kings. Psa 105:31 He spoke, and there came a swarm of flies And gnats in all their territory. Psa 105:32 He gave them hail for rain, And flaming fire in their land. Psa 105:33 He struck down their vines also and their fig trees, And shattered the trees of their territory. Psa 105:34 He spoke, and locusts came, And young locusts, even without number, Psa 105:35 And ate up all vegetation in their land, And ate up the fruit of their ground. Psa 105:36 He also struck down all the firstborn in their land, The first fruits of all their vigor. Psa 105:37 Then He brought them out with silver and gold, And among His tribes there was not one who stumbled. Psa 105:38 Egypt was glad when they departed, For the dread of them had fallen upon them. Psa 105:39 He spread a cloud for a covering, And fire to illumine by night. Psa 105:40 They asked, and He brought quail, And satisfied them with the bread of heaven. Psa 105:41 He opened the rock and water flowed out; It ran in the dry places like a river. Psa 105:42 For He remembered His holy word With Abraham His servant; Psa 105:43 And He brought forth His people with joy, His chosen ones with a joyful shout. Psa 105:44 He gave them also the lands of the nations, That they might take possession of the fruit of the peoples' labor, Psa 105:45 So that they might keep His statutes And observe His laws, Praise the LORD!
Praise Prayer #3) Give Thanks to the Lord, for He Is Good Psa 106:1 Praise the LORD! Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting. Psa 106:2 Who can speak of the mighty deeds of the LORD, Or can show forth all His praise? Psa 106:3 How blessed are those who keep justice, Who practice righteousness at all times! Psa 106:4 Remember me, O LORD, in Your favor toward Your people; Visit me with Your salvation, Psa 106:5 That I may see the prosperity of Your chosen ones, That I may rejoice in the gladness of Your nation, That I may glory with Your inheritance. Psa 106:6 We have sinned like our fathers, We have committed iniquity, we have behaved wickedly. Psa 106:7 Our fathers in Egypt did not understand Your wonders; They did not remember Your abundant kindnesses, But rebelled by the sea, at the Red Sea. Psa 106:8 Nevertheless He saved them for the sake of His name, That He might make His power known. Psa 106:9 Thus He rebuked the Red Sea and it dried up, And He led them through the deeps, as through the wilderness. Psa 106:10 So He saved them from the hand of the one who hated them, And redeemed them from the hand of the enemy. Psa 106:11 The waters covered their adversaries; Not one of them was left. Psa 106:12 Then they believed His words; They sang His praise. Psa 106:13 They quickly forgot His works; They did not wait for His counsel, Psa 106:14 But craved intensely in the wilderness, And tempted God in the desert. Psa 106:15 So He gave them their request, But sent a wasting disease among them. Psa 106:16 When they became envious of Moses in the camp, And of Aaron, the holy one of the LORD, Psa 106:17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, And engulfed the company of Abiram. Psa 106:18 And a fire blazed up in their company; The flame consumed the wicked. Psa 106:19 They made a calf in Horeb And worshiped a molten image. Psa 106:20 Thus they exchanged their glory For the image of an ox that eats grass. Psa 106:21 They forgot God their Savior, Who had done great things in Egypt, Psa 106:22 Wonders in the land of Ham And awesome things by the Red Sea. Psa 106:23 Therefore He said that He would destroy them, Had not Moses His chosen one stood in the breach before Him, To turn away His wrath from destroying them. Psa 106:24 Then they despised the pleasant land; They did not believe in His word, Psa 106:25 But grumbled in their tents; They did not listen to the voice of the LORD. Psa 106:26 Therefore He swore to them That He would cast them down in the wilderness, Psa 106:27 And that He would cast their seed among the nations And scatter them in the lands. Psa 106:28 They joined themselves also to Baal-peor, And ate sacrifices offered to the dead. Psa 106:29 Thus they provoked Him to anger with their deeds, And the plague broke out among them. Psa 106:30 Then Phinehas stood up and interposed, And so the plague was stayed. Psa 106:31 And it was reckoned to him for righteousness, To all generations forever. Psa 106:32 They also provoked Him to wrath at the waters of Meribah, So that it went hard with Moses on their account; Psa 106:33 Because they were rebellious against His Spirit, He spoke rashly with his lips. Psa 106:34 They did not destroy the peoples, As the LORD commanded them, Psa 106:35 But they mingled with the nations And learned their practices, Psa 106:36 And served their idols, Which became a snare to them. Psa 106:37 They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons, Psa 106:38 And shed innocent blood, The blood of their sons and their daughters, Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; And the land was polluted with the blood. Psa 106:39 Thus they became unclean in their practices, And played the harlot in their deeds. Psa 106:40 Therefore the anger of the LORD was kindled against His people And He abhorred His inheritance. Psa 106:41 Then He gave them into the hand of the nations, And those who hated them ruled over them. Psa 106:42 Their enemies also oppressed them, And they were subdued under their power. Psa 106:43 Many times He would deliver them; They, however, were rebellious in their counsel, And so sank down in their iniquity. Psa 106:44 Nevertheless He looked upon their distress When He heard their cry; Psa 106:45 And He remembered His covenant for their sake, And relented according to the greatness of His lovingkindness. Psa 106:46 He also made them objects of compassion In the presence of all their captors. Psa 106:47 Save us, O LORD our God, And gather us from among the nations, To give thanks to Your holy name And glory in Your praise. Psa 106:48 Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, From everlasting even to everlasting. And let all the people say, "Amen." Praise the LORD!
Praise Prayer #4) Great Are the Lord's Works Psa 111:1 Praise the LORD! I will give thanks to the LORD with all my heart, In the company of the upright and in the assembly. Psa 111:2 Great are the works of the LORD; They are studied by all who delight in them. Psa 111:3 Splendid and majestic is His work, And His righteousness endures forever. Psa 111:4 He has made His wonders to be remembered; The LORD is gracious and compassionate. Psa 111:5 He has given food to those who fear Him; He will remember His covenant forever. Psa 111:6 He has made known to His people the power of His works, In giving them the heritage of the nations. Psa 111:7 The works of His hands are truth and justice; All His precepts are sure. Psa 111:8 They are upheld forever and ever; They are performed in truth and uprightness. Psa 111:9 He has sent redemption to His people; He has ordained His covenant forever; Holy and awesome is His name. Psa 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments; His praise endures forever.
Praise Prayer #5) The Righteous Will Never Be Moved Psa 112:1 Praise the LORD! How blessed is the man who fears the LORD, Who greatly delights in His commandments. Psa 112:2 His descendants will be mighty on earth; The generation of the upright will be blessed. Psa 112:3 Wealth and riches are in his house, And his righteousness endures forever. Psa 112:4 Light arises in the darkness for the upright; He is gracious and compassionate and righteous. Psa 112:5 It is well with the man who is gracious and lends; He will maintain his cause in judgment. Psa 112:6 For he will never be shaken; The righteous will be remembered forever. Psa 112:7 He will not fear evil tidings; His heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD. Psa 112:8 His heart is upheld, he will not fear, Until he looks with satisfaction on his adversaries. Psa 112:9 He has given freely to the poor, His righteousness endures forever; His horn will be exalted in honor. Psa 112:10 The wicked will see it and be vexed, He will gnash his teeth and melt away; The desire of the wicked will perish.
Praise Prayer #6) Who Is like the Lord Our God? Psa 113:1 Praise the LORD! Praise, O servants of the LORD, Praise the name of the LORD.

Prayer #41 Psa 31:1 For the choir director. A Psalm of David. In You, O LORD, I have taken refuge; Let me never be ashamed; In Your righteousness deliver me. Psa 31:2 Incline Your ear to me, rescue me quickly; Be to me a rock of strength, A stronghold to save me.

Psa 31:9 Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am in distress; My eye is wasted away from grief, my soul and my body also. Psa 31:10 For my life is spent with sorrow And my years with sighing; My strength has failed because of my iniquity, And my body has wasted away. Psa 31:11 Because of all my adversaries, I have become a reproach, Especially to my neighbors, And an object of dread to my acquaintances; Those who see me in the street flee from me. Psa 31:12 I am forgotten as a dead man, out of mind; I am like a broken vessel. Psa 31:13 For I have heard the slander of many, Terror is on every side; While they took counsel together against me, They schemed to take away my life.

Psa 31:20 You hide them in the secret place of Your presence from the conspiracies of man; You keep them secretly in a shelter from the strife of tongues. Psa 31:21 Blessed be the LORD, For He has made marvelous His lovingkindness to me in a besieged city. Psa 31:22 As for me, I said in my alarm, "I am cut off from before Your eyes"; Nevertheless You heard the voice of my supplications When I cried to You. Psa 31:23 O love the LORD, all you His godly ones! The LORD preserves the faithful And fully recompenses the proud doer. Psa 31:24 Be strong and let your heart take courage, All you who hope in the LORD.

Will it declare Your faithfulness? Psa 30:10 "Hear, O LORD, and be gracious to me; O LORD, be my helper." Psa 30:11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness, Psa 30:12 That my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever.

Prayer #45 Psa 79:1 A Psalm of Asaph. O God, the nations have invaded Your inheritance; They have defiled Your holy temple; They have laid Jerusalem in ruins. Psa 79:2 They have given the dead bodies of Your servants for food to the birds of the heavens, The flesh of Your godly ones to the beasts of the earth. Psa 79:3 They have poured out their blood like water round about Jerusalem; And there was no one to bury them. Psa 79:4 We have become a reproach to our neighbors, A scoffing and derision to those around us. Psa 79:5 How long, O LORD? Will You be angry forever? Will Your jealousy burn like fire? Psa 79:6 Pour out Your wrath upon the nations which do not know You, And upon the kingdoms which do not call upon Your name. Psa 79:7 For they have devoured Jacob And laid waste his habitation. Psa 79:8 Do not remember the iniquities of our forefathers against us; Let Your compassion come quickly to meet us, For we are brought very low. Psa 79:9 Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of Your name; And deliver us and forgive our sins for Your name's sake. Psa 79:10 Why should the nations say, "Where is their God?" Let there be known among the nations in our sight, Vengeance for the blood of Your servants which has been shed. Psa 79:11 Let the groaning of the prisoner come before You; According to the greatness of Your power preserve those who are doomed to die. Psa 79:12 And return to our neighbors sevenfold into their bosom The reproach with which they have reproached You, O Lord. Psa 79:13 So we Your people and the sheep of Your pasture Will give thanks to You forever; To all generations we will tell of Your praise. rayer #45

Prayer #47 Psa 102:1 A Prayer of the Afflicted when he is faint and pours out his complaint before the LORD. Hear my prayer, O LORD! And let my cry for help come to You. Psa 102:2 Do not hide Your face from me in the day of my distress; Incline Your ear to me; In the day when I call answer me quickly. Psa 102:3 For my days have been consumed in smoke, And my bones have been scorched like a hearth. Psa 102:4 My heart has been smitten like grass and has withered away, Indeed, I forget to eat my bread. Psa 102:5 Because of the loudness of my groaning My bones cling to my flesh. Psa 102:6 I resemble a pelican of the wilderness; I have become like an owl of the waste places. Psa 102:7 I lie awake, I have become like a lonely bird on a housetop. Psa 102:8 My enemies have reproached me all day long; Those who deride me have used my name as a curse.

Psa 102:13 You will arise and have compassion on Zion; For it is time to be gracious to her, For the appointed time has come. Psa 102:14 Surely Your servants find pleasure in her stones And feel pity for her dust. Psa 102:15 So the nations will fear the name of the LORD And all the kings of the earth Your glory. Psa 102:16 For the LORD has built up Zion; He has appeared in His glory. Psa 102:17 He has regarded the prayer of the destitute And has not despised their prayer. Psa 102:18 This will be written for the generation to come, That a people yet to be created may praise the LORD. Psa 102:19 For He looked down from His holy height; From heaven the LORD gazed upon the earth, Psa 102:20 To hear the groaning of the prisoner, To set free those who were doomed to death, Psa 102:21 That men may tell of the name of the LORD in Zion And His praise in Jerusalem, Psa 102:22 When the peoples are gathered together, And the kingdoms, to serve the LORD. Psa 102:23 He has weakened my strength in the way; He has shortened my days. Psa 102:24 I say, "O my God, do not take me away in the midst of my days, Your years are throughout all generations. Psa 102:25 "Of old You founded the earth, And the heavens are the work of Your hands. Psa 102:26 "Even they will perish, but You endure; And all of them will wear out like a garment; Like clothing You will change them and they will be changed. Psa 102:27 "But You are the same, And Your years will not come to an end. Psa 102:28 "The children of Your servants will continue, And their descendants will be established before You."

Psa 143:2 And do not enter into judgment with Your servant, For in Your sight no man living is righteous.
