Praying Through: Psalm 29

The Psalm

Psalm 29 (CSB)
A psalm of David.

1 Ascribe to the LORD, you heavenly beings, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.

2 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness.

3 The voice of the LORD is above the waters. The God of glory thunders— the LORD, above the vast water,

4 the voice of the LORD in power, the voice of the LORD in splendor.

5 The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars; the LORD shatters the cedars of Lebanon.

6 He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, and Sirion, like a young wild ox.

7 The voice of the LORD flashes flames of fire.

8 The voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness; the LORD shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.

9 The voice of the LORD makes the deer give birth and strips the woodlands bare. In his temple all cry, “Glory!”

10 The LORD sits enthroned over the flood; the LORD sits enthroned, King forever.

11 The LORD gives his people strength; the LORD blesses his people with peace.

The Prayer

My Blessed Redeemer,

Who is like you,

  • splendid in majesty
  • high and exalted
  • wonderful and amazing
  • beautiful and all-together lovely.

So I will sing this song,

  • with all of my days
  • because you are my portion
  • and you loved me since forever.

How many times have you rescued me

  • from the pit of despair
  • from the darkness of hell
  • from the knife edge of death?

I know not the countless times.

But you are faithful in all of your ways,

  • perfect
  • true
  • blessed
  • good
  • righteous

And I know you will rescue me countless times more.

I praise you forever I will praise you.

Forever I will sing

  • you are my beauty
  • you are my strength

And I will sing.
