Our Hope Is In The LORD Our God

Psalm 146 New Living Translation

Praise the Lord!

Let all that I am praise the Lord.
     I will praise the Lord as long as I live.
    I will sing praises to my God with my dying breath.

 Don’t put your confidence in powerful people;
    there is no help for you there.
When they breathe their last, they return to the earth,
    and all their plans die with them.
 But joyful are those who have the God of Israel as their helper,
    whose hope is in the Lord their God.
 He made heaven and earth,
    the sea, and everything in them.
    He keeps every promise forever.
 He gives justice to the oppressed
    and food to the hungry.
The Lord frees the prisoners.
     The Lord opens the eyes of the blind.
The Lord lifts up those who are weighed down.
    The Lord loves the godly.
 The Lord protects the foreigners among us.
    He cares for the orphans and widows,
    but he frustrates the plans of the wicked.

 The Lord will reign forever.
    He will be your God, O Jerusalem, throughout the generations.

Praise the Lord!

Our Father,

There is none but You we can put our complete trust in. You are worthy of our undying praise – You who made the whole of Creation and who is in control of every circumstance. May we strengthen our trust and faith day by day with the help of the Holy Spirit, that we may grow in maturity and align ourselves to restoring Your plan for the world – that of holy fellowship, love and peace.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
