Day 1: Praise God!

To begin our 40 days of prayer leading up to Global Sunday on October 29, let us acknowledge, praise and thank our creator and Lord. 

I share the words of a hymn written by Thomas Ken in 1674:

Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heav'nly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

From Romans 11:36:

For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things.  To Him be the glory forever. Amen.

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be they name.  We recognize you as our creator and the creator of all things.  We give you all our praise and adoration.  We know that everything comes from you and we thank you for each and every blessing.  To you be all the glory, with all our heart, soul and mind.  In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
