Praise Habit: Psalm 113

Praise the Lord!
Praise, O servants of the Lord;
praise the name of the Lord.

Blessed be the name of the Lord
from this time on and for evermore.
From the rising of the sun to its setting
the name of the Lord is to be praised.
The Lord is high above all nations,
and his glory above the heavens.


Who is like the Lord our God,
who is seated on high,
who looks far down
on the heavens and the earth?
He raises the poor from the dust,
and lifts the needy from the ash heap,
to make them sit with princes,
with the princes of his people.
He gives the barren woman a home,
making her the joyous mother of children.
Praise the Lord!

Psalm 113 (NRSV)

Praise Yahweh!

Who else is like our God? Who else do you know that takes those whom the rest of the world calls “unfortunate” and sets them in places of honor? Or blesses those whom have not hope?

It is so right for your name to be blessed always by everything, because truly no one else is like You. Your love is astounding and Your grace brings joy to the sorrowful. There is nothing I can say that could capture the rapture and wonder of who You are and what You pleasure to do. So, I join with all Your ministers and say, “Praise Yahweh!”
