Psalms Prayer Pattern

I will exalt you, my God and King,
     and praise your name forever and ever.
I will praise you every day;
     yes, I will praise you forever.
Great is the LORD! He is most worthy of praise!
     No one can measure his greatness.

Let each generation tell its children of your mighty acts;
     let them proclaim your power.
I will meditate on your majestic, glorious splendor
     and your wonderful miracles.
Your awe-inspiring deeds will be on every tongue;
     I will proclaim your greatness.
Everyone will share the story of your wonderful goodness;
     they will sing with joy about your righteousness.

The LORD is merciful and compassionate,
     slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.
The LORD is good to everyone.
     He showers compassion on all his creation.
All of your works will thank you, LORD
     and your faithful followers will praise you.
They will speak of the glory of your kingdom;
     they will give examples of your power.
They will tell about your mighty deeds
     and about the majesty and glory of your reign.
For your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom.
     You rule throughout all generations.
The LORD always keeps his promises;
     he is gracious in all he does.
The LORD helps the fallen
     and lifts those bent beneath their loads.
The eyes of all look to you in hope;
     you give them their food as they need it.
When you open your hand,
     you satisfy the hunger and thirst of every living thing.
The LORD is righteous in everything he does;
     he is filled with kindness.
The LORD is close to all who call on him,
     yes, to all who call on him in truth.
He grants the desires of those who fear him;
     he hears their cries for help and rescues them.
The LORD protects all those who love him,
     but he destroys the wicked.

I will praise the LORD,
     and may everyone on earth bless his holy name
     forever and ever.       —Psalm 145 NLT
