Meditation and Prayer on Psalm 135


Psalm 135:1-6  Meditation and Prayer

Heavenly Father, our Lord and our King.  It is pleasant indeed to sing praises unto 
Your Name.  We look forward every week to the Sabbath Day, where we remember 
that You are good and have remembered the promises that You made to Your people.

You have chosen us to be Christians, to be Your people.  We glory in being Your 
special treasure in the earth.  We are not ashamed to declare it, because You are not 
ashamed to acknowledge us as Your people.  

This is very great and wonderful news for us, Dear Lord, for it is of Your great pleasure 
that You have done this.  You have done whatever You have pleased in heaven and in 
earth, in the seas, and in all deep places.  You chose us for Your pleasure and not that 
there were good things in us that You  saw attractive.  Indeed, it was when we were in 
our sins, alienated from You that Christ died for us.

You are very great, O Lord God.  You are far above all that we call gods, all that have a 
name among the great of the earth.  You are so great that their evil cannot touch You, 
for You are above All and do as You please, and nothing binds Your hands. You will 
fulfill all Your purposes and grace for the people of Your choice.

So we stand in the house of the Lord every Sunday, dear Lord, and we sing praises 
unto Your Name.  It is pleasant for us to do so.  We are proud to be Your servants, 
and nothing fits our tongues and our lips and our voices and our hearts better than to 
praise the name of the Lord.  

We will speak of the glorious honor of Your majesty, and of Your wondrous works. 
Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, 
fearful in praises, doing wonders?

-------------

1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the name of the LORD; praise him, O ye servants of 
the LORD.
2  Ye that stand in the house of the LORD, in the courts of the house of our God,
3  Praise the LORD; for the LORD is good: sing praises unto his name; for it is 
pleasant.
4  For the LORD hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure.
5  For I know that the LORD is great, and that our Lord is above all gods.
6  Whatsoever the LORD pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and 
all deep places.  Psalm 135:1-6
