29 O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. (KJV)
We give thanks to you O Lord, for you are good and your love and mercy endures forever. Let all those who know and fear you proclaim: “His mercy endureth for ever.”
Out of our distress we called on you and you answered us and set me free. With you on our side; we will not fear. What can anyone do to us? With you on our side as a helper;
we shall triumph over the evil one and all those who oppose us and the calling you have placed upon our lives.
It is better to take refuge in you than trust in anyone on earth; It is better to take refuge in you than trust in government leaders. You are our strength and our song;
our hope and our salvation. We shall not die but live forever; all of us who are called by the name of your Son Jesus, and therefore we will recount your deeds of love and mercy forever.
Open to us O Lord the gates of your Kingdom and bring it down now in our midst so that we can give thanks to you. Let your presence lift us up in order to become the people we are called to be in order to bring your Word and Kingdom message to all the world; every nation, people, and tongue.
Thanks for letting your light shine upon us and for bringing us your salvation; blessed is he who comes in the clouds for us; your Son Jesus who will rule the whole world and bring healing, prosperity and freedom to all. We look for that day and praise your name in the meantime; for this is the day that you have made for us; We will rejoice and be glad in it.
In Jesus name, Amen.
