Praying Through: Psalm 47

The Psalm

Psalm 47 (CSB)
For the choir director. A psalm of the sons of Korah.

1 Clap your hands, all you peoples; shout to God with a jubilant cry.

2 For the LORD, the Most High, is awe-inspiring, a great King over the whole earth.

3 He subdues peoples under us and nations under our feet.

4 He chooses for us our inheritance— the pride of Jacob, whom he loves. Selah

5 God ascends among shouts of joy, the LORD, with the sound of a ram’s horn.

6 Sing praise to God, sing praise; sing praise to our King, sing praise!

7 Sing a song of wisdom, for God is King of the whole earth.

8 God reigns over the nations; God is seated on his holy throne.

9 The nobles of the peoples have assembled with the people of the God of Abraham. For the leaders of the earth belong to God; he is greatly exalted.

The Prayer

You Are My Dwelling

I will sing

  • of all of your done
  • of your salvation of my soul
  • of your goodness to me
  • of your provision when I have nothing
  • of your presence when I was alone.

I will proclaim

  • that you alone are good
  • that you alone are righteous
  • that you alone are worthy
  • that you alone are holy
  • holy
  • holy.

I will preach

  • that Christ came to save sinners
  • of whom I am the foremost
  • that Christ came to save His people
  • from their sins
  • that Christ is gentle and lowly
  • and will take our sins
  • of Christ alone
  • and him crucified.

I will confess

  • with a changed heart
  • and a renewed mind
  • and with your Spirit within me
  • and your Son who died for me
  • of all of my sins
  • that you are God alone
  • there is none like you.

I will live

  • unto you alone
  • because you are my precious God
  • and my Lord
  • forevermore.
