Welcome to Wednesday’s Praise and Worship Session! The Holy Scriptures: Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s. (Psalm 103:1-5) Bless the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure. Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul. (Psalm 103:21-22)
Call To Worship: “Holy Spirit, fill this place. My heart is prepared for You; I welcome Your embrace. Holy Spirit take control; let this place be Your abode. Let Your glory fill this place.” This “place” is my heart, Lord, dwell within me. Fill this longing to worship, as I bow before Thee, broken. In Your presence is where I long to be, praises spoken. Open up the windows of heaven, dear Lord. Rain down on me. Fill this “place” with Your Manifest Presence; with a residue of Your essence. O Lord, my God, with tears streaming down, I’ve come to worship Thee.
“Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.” Let the redeemed of the Lord say so! Be highly exalted, O LORD, my God! Thou art worthy of honor and praise. Thou art worthy. Glory to God in the highest! You are my refuge, my strength, my sword, my shield. I trust in Thee; my spirit I yield. Thy works tell of Your everlasting love, so undeserved I know. If not for Your grace, Your abundant mercy, whither shall I go? I offer the sacrifice of praise unto You, Almighty God, so faithful and true. In the furnace of affliction, my praise is refined. I worship You, Love Divine.
As The Music Plays: “Enter into his Gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.” Blessed be the name of the LORD. He is worthy to be praised and adored. With heads bowed down and hearts lifted toward Him, worship Him, in spirit and in truth.
Feel free to share a song of worship, a praise of thanksgiving, a Psalm of praise and worship, a poem, or whatever the Lord speaks into your heart to share, in the comment box. Please join us next time, for another Praise and Worship Session! I worship You, Almighty God! I come to You with heartfelt praise! There is none like You. Won’t you take a few moments to worship Him today? He alone is worthy. Give Him glory.
