Prayer for Psalm 99

Let them praise your great and awesome name.  Your name is holy!  Mighty King, lover of justice, you have established fairness.  You have acted with justice and righteousness throughout Israel.  Exalt the LORD your God!  Bow low before his feet, for he is holy!  Moses and Aaron were among his priests; Samuel also called on his name.  They cried to the LORD for help, and he answered them…O LORD our God, you answered them.  You were a forgiving God to them, but you punished them when they went wrong.  Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at his holy mountain in Jerusalem, for the LORD our God is holy!   ~Psalm 99:3-6,8-9

Lord, today I praise your great and awesome name.  You are holy!  You love justice and you are the foundation of  fairness.  Teach me, O God, to remember daily to bow before you, low at your feet; not that I might show of my bruised forehead for all to see (as many people here do) but that I might remember who I am in relation to who you are.  

Hear our prayer, O LORD, our call to you to save the people around us, to draw near to them and bless them with the gift of hope, peace, forgiveness and salvation.  Hear our prayer, O LORD, for our families and our friends.  Guard them and keep them in your strong hand.  We ask for your guidance and your assistance in helping us to be wise and loving parents.

Guard our hearts and our minds as we serve you.  Grant your blessing upon us and fill us with your Spirit daily as we follow the one you sent — Jesus, the Messiah for all people.
