I humbly ask that You will enable me to honor and praise You, to love and serve You, as the most excellent, amiable, and beneficent of all beings, my Father and my Friend, my Lord and my God.

  • GREAT and blessed God! The Maker and Lord of heaven and earth!
  • You possess all power, wisdom, and goodness.
  • All riches, majesty, and dominion are Yours.
  • You are worthy to be revered and honored, loved and obeyed, by all on earth, and all in heaven.
  • I adore You as the fountain of all being, of all happiness, and all perfection; and particularly as the God of my life, the author of all my past and present mercies, and the foundation of all my future hopes.
  • Blessed be Your name, You have now brought me to see another of the days of the Son of Man.
  • O Lord, You are worthy of all honor, great is Your nature beautiful are Your attributes.
  • So great and unfathomable are Your creating powers and wisdom, Your providential care, and Your redeeming love and grace.
  • O Lord, You are the most beneficent of beings.
  • O MOST blessed and glorious God! Your name is excellent in all the earth; and You have set Your glory above the heavens. You are great, and greatly to be praised; You are good, and greatly to be loved; and You are worthy to receive the united adoration and homage of all Your rational creatures.
  • O God, You do not need our services; nor can You receive the least advantage from our praises: but never can we be more honorably or advantageously employed, than in celebrating Your perfections; admiring Your works, gratefully recollecting the past instances of Your goodness, and imploring the continuance of Your kind and favorable regards.
  • Blessed be Your name, O God of grace, that You took compassion on a world that lay in wickedness, and was exposed to misery and ruin.
  • You engineered the grand scheme of our redemption and salvation that when the fullness, of time had come, You sent forth Your beloved Son, to execute the purposes of Your goodness; and to teach us.
  • You have taught us the most important and salutary doctrines, instructed us in the knowledge of Your nature and will, of the duties-which You require of us, and of the blessings which You have intended for us.
  • You set before us the most amiable and animating example of universal goodness, in Christ Jesus our Lord’s own character and conduct. For at length Christ chose to suffer and to die, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God..
  • Blessed be Your name, that You have, with Your right-hand, exalted our suffering and dying Redeemer, to be the Captain of our salvation; and that, having been made perfect through sufferings, He has become the author of eternal salvation to all them that obey him.
  • Blessed be Your name that the tidings of so great a salvation has reached my ears; that the kind offers of grace, peace, and eternal life, are held forth to me in the gospel of Your Son.
  • O MOST great, most gracious, and most glorious God!
  • Almighty Maker and All-wise Governor of the universe!
  • The Father, the Friend, and Savior of mankind!
  • All possible excellence is centered in You: all blessed and substantial good streams forth from You.
  • Adored be that power and goodness which at first brought me into being, and whereby I have been constantly supported and liberally supplied with all things needful to my comfortable subsistence in this present state.
  • O Preserver of men, You have been pleased to spare my forfeited life: as numberless as my sins and provocations against You have been, You are still following me with Your mercies and favors.
  • Blessed be Your name for the encouragement You have given me to repent of my sins, by the kind assurance of Your readiness to pardon and acceptance of all who are truly penitent.
  • Blessed be Your name, unworthy as I am of the common bounties of Your providence, You have freely offered to my acceptance, a share in the far richer treasures of Your grace.
  • Never can I admire You enough for the unexampled love which You have manifested in sending Your only begotten Son into the world.
  • O LORD, my God, You are ever merciful and gracious. You cause the outgoings of the morning, and of the evening, to rejoice over me.
  • I adore You as the author of my life and being, as the former of my body, and the father of my spirit. I bless You that You have made me a rational creature; have designed me for immortality; and have placed me here, in a state of discipline, in order to train me up, by a variety of exercises and trials, experiences and improvements, for the business and blessedness of another and better state.

  • ALMIGHTY and most merciful Father! You are the great Parent of the universe, and the supreme Lord of all, by whom all things were created, and are continually supported and governed.
  • I adore the glorious perfections of Your nature,—the boundless power, wisdom, and goodness which You have displayed in all Your works; and most gratefully acknowledge the liberal communications of Your bounty and beneficence-to me, although I am unworthy of the least of Your mercies.
  • I bless You for every instance of Your kindness and favor which I have experienced through all my past life; and particularly for the watchful care of Your good providence, by which I have been secured from the dangers of the last night, and brought to see another day, in peace and comfort.
  • Your mercies, 0 Lord, are new to me every morning; great is Your faithfulness: and hence it is that I am not consumed, even because Your compassion fails not.
  • Blessed be Your name, for I am a monument of Your patience and forbearance; furnished with a variety of good things relating to the life that I now have; and encouraged to hope for far better blessings in the life to come, through Your wonderful love and grace manifested to a sinful world, by Your Son Jesus Christ.
  • Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: who forgives all Your iniquities; who heals all Your diseases; who redeems Your life from destruction; and crowns You with loving-kindness and tender mercies.
  • As long as I live I will praise the Lord; and magnify His holy name, while I have any being.
  • O infinite, great and adorable majesty of heaven and earth! You are ever present in all parts of Your vast dominions, and not far from any of Your creatures. You know my down-sitting and my up-rising; You understand my thoughts afar off; You compass my path, and my lying-down; and are acquainted with all my ways.
  • Blessed be Your name that You have not left me in a helpless and hopeless state; but that there is mercy and forgiveness with You, that You may be feared, and that in Your right hand there is redemption.
  • Blessed be Your name for that covenant of grace and peace which You have established with us by the gospel; wherein the promises of pardon, acceptance, and eternal life, are made to those who return unto You in the way of repentance, faith, and new obedience; and the assistance of Your Holy Spirit is offered to all that ask it.
