Praying Through: Psalm 100 Goodness

The Psalm

Psalm 100 (CSB)
A psalm of thanksgiving.

1 Let the whole earth shout triumphantly to the LORD!

2 Serve the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.

3 Acknowledge that the LORD is God. He made us, and we are his— his people, the sheep of his pasture.

4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and bless his name.

5 For the LORD is good, and his faithful love endures forever; his faithfulness, through all generations.

The Prayer


I will sing!

  • And I will shout!
  • I will praise the Lord of Hosts!
  • For he alone is worthy to be praised!

He is my heart and my life

  • I will gladly lay down my life
  • because he has saved me from the depths of hell
  • because he has loved me from the beginning of time
  • because he has kept me close to his precious heart
  • because I am his son and he is my Father

So whatever I can do

  • however I can proclaim
  • however I can sing
  • however I can dance
  • however I will write
  • however I will think
  • however I will worship
  • my great God who is the source of all good
  • he alone has been good to me
  • for the world and sin and Satan and his demons
  • have sought to destroy me and crushed me and keep me from my God

But my God is stronger

  • of infinite might
  • he has nor will ever lose me
  • he has sent his only begotten Son
  • to destroy and vanquished the forces of evil

Now my enemies are down

  • they have no power over me
  • for the Triune God lives in me
  • forever
  • I am his and he is mine

He has loved me with an everlasting love

  • let me sing unto my God
  • let me gaze upon his beauty
  • let me write a trillion words
  • and I will fall short
  • because there is no end to his loveliness
