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.
