I was reading this last night and it really struck me.

Psalm 145

A psalm of praise. Of David.

 I will exalt you, my God the King;
    I will praise your name for ever and ever.
 Every day I will praise you
    and extol your name for ever and ever.
 Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
    his greatness no one can fathom.
 One generation will commend your works to another;
    they will tell of your mighty acts.
 They will speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty,
    and I will meditate on your wonderful works.
 They will tell of the power of your awesome works,
    and I will proclaim your great deeds.
 They will celebrate your abundant goodness
    and joyfully sing of your righteousness.
 The Lord is gracious and compassionate,
    slow to anger and rich in love.
 The Lord is good to all;
    he has compassion on all he has made.
 All you have made will praise you, O Lord;
    your saints will extol you.
 They will tell of the glory of your kingdom
    and speak of your might,
 so that all men may know of your mighty acts
    and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.
 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
    and your dominion endures through all generations.
The Lord is faithful to all his promises
    and loving toward all he has made.
 The Lord upholds all those who fall
    and lifts up all who are bowed down.
 The eyes of all look to you,
    and you give them their food at the proper time.
 You open your hand
    and satisfy the desires of every living thing.
 The Lord is righteous in all his ways
    and loving toward all he has made.
 The Lord is near to all who call on him,
    to all who call on him in truth.
 He fulfills the desires of those who fear him;
    he hears their cry and saves them.
 The Lord watches over all who love him,
    but all the wicked he will destroy.
 My mouth will speak in praise of the Lord.
    Let every creature praise his holy name
    for ever and ever.


Father, I thank You for Your Word. I thank You for beauty. I thank You for the work that You're doing. I thank You for Your righteousness, Your greatness, Your faithfulness, Your love, Your glorious splendor and majesty, Your power and awesome works, Your compassion and Your promises. Thank You for hearing our cries and watching over us. May we forever praise You.
