I pray that the Lord will help me be a blessing to people I meet. I pray that the Lord will speak through me to encourage others to come to know Him as Savior and Lord. I pray that the Lord will tear down any walls of prejudice and racism so that we may all learn to live together in unity, love, and peace. Dear LORD, I ask you to help me respect your name. Help me live my life the way you always wanted me to. You are always there for me; I know that with all the trust I have in you. I pray to be with you every minute of my life and play a good role for other people to follow. Please bless me and my family so we can survive through the bad times as well and become your partners in the good times that are coming. Dear Lord, You are the ruler of all. When You speak and shed abroad Your blessings upon us, it makes us count our many blessings. When you bestow upon us your guidance in all things right and good, we feel your presence among us and are aware that you are with us always.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. I’m just a girl, standing in front of the Lord (but i guess you could say that I’m not alone, because he is also present) asking him to magnify his presence in my life. Magnify his presence in my life. Ohhh Magnify his presence in my life. In my life. Ohhh.
When you think of the word magnify, you probably don’t think much of the word “Prayer” so that is why when I wanted to write this post on a prayer to magnify The Lord, I struggled as there aren’t too many resources written on this subject. So in my research and study of the Bible I decided to write my own prayer and I believe it will be beneficial to your walk with God, living your everyday life according to The Word of God, and help you grow closer to God in an intimate way because if you are walking with He, why not become one with Him?
Prayer To Praise God In The Morning
“I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving” (Psalm 69:30). Lord, help me not to magnify my problems today, but instead to magnify who you are. You are almighty, all-power, all-loving and you are my Savior.
TEXT: ’I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2 My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. 3 O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together’
This is what our prayers ought to do, to magnify the greatness of God, his awesomeness, his wonders, his splendor and his majesty! Our prayers ought to magnify God and not vilify him! This is what you will see in the book of Psalms, the prayers of David, they constantly speak to the greatness of God and of his works! ‘Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised’, this is the language of the Psalms, these are the prayers of David, languages of faith, praise and victory, always magnifying God above all situations and circumstances! How many of us need to change our prayer life. How many of us slates, vilify, question, complain to God, about God in our prayers? How much we need to change that today!
I know we all have problems and challenges, and they must be big problems, but so does David too, he had big problems as well! I can show to you Psalms after Psalms where David talked of his many troubles. But that is not where it ends for David as it would have been for many us. In the same breath that David talked about his troubles he also talked about his triumphs! He doesn’t just lament about his problems for in the same vein he exalts His God above all problems! Look at this Psalm.
Studying the Bible is essential because of how important God is.
We should give our full attention to the Bible since it contains God’s message to humanity. We need to get in touch with him. Since we aim to take his words to heart, we will be giving them our full and undivided attention.
What a priceless piece of advice! A biblical passage describes them as “more to be desired than gold, even much fine gold; also sweeter than honey and drippings of the honeycomb” (Psalm 19:10). More than the biggest joys that our world wants—money and food—the Bible satisfies us.
Paul told young pastor Timothy that “all Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16). As you speak, God “breathes out” each individual word in the Bible. It is absolutely original in this respect. That statement is true of the Bible but not of any other literature.
Reading the Bible is not the same as studying it.
The Bible is just another document, therefore we read it as quickly as possible. In contrast, we don’t rush through Bible study. We search for answers to the world’s mysteries as we attempt to make sense of it. What they say is given serious consideration.
Ephesians 1:1-14 can be read in 30 seconds, yet the lessons it contains will last you a lifetime. The Gospel of John can be read in its entirety in roughly two hours. But its complexity ensures that you’ll never get bored exploring it.
The reward of maturing in God’s word will be ours for as long as we live.
It’s important to devote a lot of time to Bible study and have faith in what you’re reading.
We put in the time and effort necessary since we value education highly. However, relying on God also calls for us to ask for wisdom.
Paul urged Timothy to “think over what I say, for the Lord will give you understanding in everything” (2 Timothy 2:7). God endows us with wit, but we have to put it to use.
The evangelist George Whitefield began devoting himself to reading the Bible on a regular basis once he became a Christian. Author says, “I began to read the Holy Scriptures upon my knees, laying aside all other books and praying over, if possible, every line and word… I daily received fresh life, light, and power from above.” Take note of how modest he is.1
Powerful Prayer To Praise God
Whether or not we choose to get on our knees to study, that’s where our focus ought to be.
Psalm 31:9-20, ‘Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly. 10 For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed. 11 I was a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that did see me without fled from me. 12 I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel. 13 For I have heard the slander of many: fear was on every side: while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life. 14 But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God. 15 My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me. 16 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy mercies’ sake. 17 Let me not be ashamed, O LORD; for I have called upon thee: let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave. 18 Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous. 19 Oh, how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men! 20 Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues. 21 Blessed be the LORD: for he hath showed me his marvelous kindness in a strong city.
Look at the prayers of David here, from verse nine to verse thirteen he enumerated his various problems, but then from verse 14, he declared his trust in God! And then in verse 19 in the face of all his challenges, he talked up the greatness of God and blesses the Lord in verse 21! Hallelujah! No wonder he was a man after God’s heart! David compared the odds that were against him with the God in heaven that was always beside him! This spiritual comparison gives him an insight into his victory and triumphs! How much today as believers we need to make such comparisons always!
In the midst of the pressures, there was still room for praises, this was the prayers of David, it seeks to magnify the Lord at all times!
How can we magnify God? We cannot magnify the size of God, but we can magnify our perception of Him! And if our perception is our reality it then mean that the way we see God is the way he manifests himself in our lives! Those who magnify the greatness of God will always experience the greatness of God in their lives.
This revelation must have prompted the song writer to pen these words:
I have made You too small in my eyes
O Lord, forgive me;
I have believed in a lie
That You were unable to help me.
But now, O Lord, I see my wrong
Heal my heart and show Yourself strong;
And in my eyes and with my song
O Lord, be magnified
O Lord, be magnified.
Be magnified, O Lord
You are highly exalted;
And there is nothing You can’t do
O Lord, my eyes are on You.
O Lord, be magnified.
You can make the song of Don Moen your prayer today, BE MAGNIFIED OH LORD. And peradventure you don’t know how to do that, just turn in to the prayers of David and he will show you how to magnify God above all your circumstances and situations! BE MAGNIFY OH LORD! AMEN!
