Praise to the Lord ~ Guest Contributor, Claire Smith

Praise to the Lord ~ Guest Contributor, Claire Smith

Dear God,

Like the Psalmist, we ask,

“Who is like you?”

The truth?

There is no one like you.

You alone are God.

So, we worship you

with feeble lips and hands,

ever conscious of our sins,

while fully aware of your grace

extended to us

when we confess—we have sinned.


We ask you, dear Lord,

to forgive us.


We exalt you, 

knowing that we are inadequate to

fully comprehend you—

your infiniteness, your majesty,

your beauty.


We ask you, dear Lord,

please accept our humble praise.


We bless you; we bless your name

ever mindful of 

your omnipotence,

your omniscience,

ever present with us everywhere.

You are good. You are great.


Receive us, O Lord.


May we be open to you,

proclaiming your wonders,

your glory

with full voice,

joining in creation’s praise

without inhibition,

for you gave all for us

and give us all that we need.


Glorious one, high and lifted up,
