Welcome to our praise and worship guide using the Psalms.
This guide is intended to help you spend a few minutes in worship on a daily basis. The worship activities for each day will take about 10 minutes, and are best done before your normal devotional time. May God richly bless you as you take time to reflect on who He is and what He’s doing in your life!
Read verses 1 and 2. Praise God today because He is merciful. Think about how He has healed, restored or forgiven you in the past, when you were in a miserable condition. Tell Him about these times, and thank Him. Pour out your love for Him as you feel led, because of His great mercy toward you.
Read verses 3-6. Praise God because He is compassionate. In what way are you in a pitiful condition today? Call on the Lord Jesus, the Great Physician, to heal your wounds, or simply to restore you to a passion for Him after a time of coldness. As you receive mercy from the Lord, tell Him how this awes you.
Read verses 7-9. Praise God because He is good. Thank Him again for His specific mercy and goodness to you in the past. Tell Him how this gives you the confidence to find your rest in Him. Bring specific anxieties to Him right now; listen to the voice of His Spirit of rest as He speaks His peace to you.
Read verses 12-14. Rejoice today in the goodness of the Lord that follows you. Tell Him how this motivates you to desire a deeper walk with Him. Affirm to Him that He is the only source of mercy and goodness you have to call on. Tell Him how deeply you desire to obey Him. Ask Him for what you need today.
Read verses 17-19. Thank the Lord for His specific mercies this week. Call on Him for the specific mercy or goodness that you need today. Ask Him to show you how to obey Him more fully. Say with the Psalmist, “Praise the Lord.”
