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!
“As a Father, the Lord Shows Compassion”
Read verses 1-6. Think about the specific benefits you have from God and tell Him about them. Thank Him because of these. Thank Him for specific times He has forgiven and healed you. Tell Him specifically how He has satisfied your desires, and thank Him for this. Praise Him for His mercy and goodness.
Read verses 7-12. Praise the Lord because of His compassion. Tell Him how His compassion encourages you. Spend some time in confession today.
