Worthy!

    “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty,
        who was and is and is to come!”
    And whenever the living creatures
 give glory and honor and thanks
 to him who is seated on the throne,
 who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders
 fall down before him who is seated on the throne 
and worship him who lives forever and ever.
 They cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
    “Worthy are you, our Lord and God,
        to receive glory and honor and power,
    for you created all things,
        and by your will they existed 
and were created.”
Revelation 4:8-11

I prefer to walk alone, because it is such an excellent time to cast my concerns before the Lord.  If someone was watching me they would likely think I was a crazy woman (not too far from right), because I love to pray aloud.  It's okay; I usually go pretty early in the morning.  Anyway, there is much to pray about right now, some trials which seem overwhelming in many ways.  But this morning as I began to walk, I decided that instead of taking all my concerns to the Lord--again--when He already knows my requests even before I ask or think of them myself, I would take this time to  praise and worship Him.

What a glorious morning I had!  Thirty minutes of praising my Lord, of worshiping Him in the beauty of holiness.  Unlovely me, because of the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ on my behalf, able to praise Him as I walked and talked to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, my Friend,  my closest and dearest Friend, my Beloved.

I encourage you to take a morning to speak aloud everything that you can think of concerning our precious Savior and Lord.  Praise Him for His character, His wonderful acts in your life and that of your loved ones, for His truth, His sovereign design, His care and protection, His presence, His knowledge, His all-seeing eye, and everything else you can think of.  There is no way that His joy will not fill your soul!

Try it!  Go ahead!  It will make your day!

In His great joy and love,
Gloria

I too pray out loud on my walks. :-) I guess we will be together if they decide we are crazy!

We have been taking time to Praise the Lord as a family. Not just praying, but praising as well. It is so good to look at each blessing in a day.

I love those verses! He alone is worthy of praise! What a precious post.

I"m definitely a "quiet" prayer, for sure. I think that's so cool that you pray while you're walking :) :) If I'd seen you walking down the street talking out loud, my first thought would be is that you're using a blue tooth with your mobile phone :) :)

Oh, I'm memorizing all of Psalm 91...two verses a week. It's a great Psalm with lots of promise :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)
