Blessed be the LORD! For he has heard the voice of my pleas for mercy. The LORD is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him. (Psalm 28:6-7 ESV)
Hymn ELH 36:1-2 All Glory Be to God Alone
All glory be to God alone,
Forevermore the Highest One,
Who doth our sinful race befriend
And grace and peace to us extend.
Among mankind may His good will
All hearts with deep thanksgiving fill.
We praise Thee, God, and Thee we bless;
We worship Thee in humbleness;
From day to day we glorify
Thee, everlasting God on high.
Of Thy great glory do we sing,
And e’er to Thee our thanks we bring.
Heavenly Father, thank You for hearing my pleas for forgiveness and for being my strength through all the trials of this life. Most of all, I thank You for the forgiveness You give to me through Your Son, Jesus Christ. In His name I pray. Amen.
