David's Prayer


"Blessed are You, Lord God of Israel, our Father, forever and ever.
Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, the power and the glory,
The victory and the majesty;
For all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours;
Yours is the kingdom, O Lord,  and You are exalted as head over all.
Both riches and honor come from You, and You reign over all.
In Your hand is power and might;
In Your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all.

“Now therefore, our God, we thank You
And praise Your glorious name.

"But who am I, and who are my people,
That we should be able to offer so willingly as this?
For all things come from You, and of Your own we have given You....

"O Lord... keep this forever in the intent of the thoughts of the heart of Your people, and fix their heart toward You."

1 Chronicles 29:10-18
