Psalm 9:11-12

11 Sing praises to the Lord, who lives in Zion. Proclaim his mighty acts among all people!

12 Because the one who avenges bloodshed remembers those who suffer; the Lord hasn't forgotten their cries for help.

Psalm 66:10-13

10 But you, God, have tested us you've refined us like silver,

11 trapped us in a net, laid burdens on our backs,

12 let other people run right over our heads— we've been through fire and water. But you brought us out to freedom!

13 So I'll enter your house with entirely burned offerings. I'll keep the promises I made to you.

Psalm 92:1-8

It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to your name, O Most High;

to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night,

to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre.

For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy.

How great are your works, O Lord! Your thoughts are very deep!

The dullard cannot know, the stupid cannot understand this:

though the wicked sprout like grass and all evildoers flourish, they are doomed to destruction forever,

but you, O Lord, are on high forever.

Psalm 138:1-3

1 I give thanks to you with all my heart, Lord. I sing your praise before all other gods.

I bow toward your holy temple and thank your name for your loyal love and faithfulness because you have made your name and word greater than everything else.

On the day I cried out, you answered me. You encouraged me with inner strength.  From Pastor Dudley

Psalm 99

1 The Lord rules—   the nations shake! He sits enthroned on the winged heavenly creatures—the earth quakes!

The Lord is great in Zion; he is exalted over all the nations.

Let them thank your great and awesome name. He is holy!

4  Strong king[a] who loves justice, you are the one who established what is fair. You worked justice and righteousness in Jacob.

5  Magnify the Lord, our God! Bow low at his footstool! He is holy!

6  Moses and Aaron were among his priests, Samuel too among those who called on his name. They cried out to the Lord, and he himself answered them—

 he spoke to them from a pillar of cloud. They kept the laws and the rules God gave to them.

8  Lord our God, you answered them. To them you were a God who forgives but also the one who avenged their wrong deeds.

Magnify the Lord our God! Bow low at his holy mountain because the Lord our God is holy.

Psalm 118:5-9

5 In tight circumstances, I cried out to the Lord. The Lord answered me with wide-open spaces.

The Lord is for me[a]—I won't be afraid. What can anyone do to me?

The Lord is for me—as my helper. I look in victory on those who hate me.

It's far better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust any human.

It's far better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust any human leader.

Psalm 145:1-5


1 I will lift you up high, my God, the true king; I will bless your name forever and always.

I will bless you every day. I will praise your name forever and always.

The Lord is great and so worthy of praise! God's greatness can't be grasped.

One generation will praise your works to the next one, proclaiming your mighty acts.

They will talk all about the glorious splendor of your majesty; I will contemplate your wondrous works.

Psalm 49:1-2, 5-7

Hear this, all you peoples; give ear, all inhabitants of the world,

both low and high rich and poor together.

 

Why should I fear in times of trouble when the iniquity of my persecutors surrounds me,

those who trust in their wealth and boast of the abundance of their riches?

Truly, no ransom avails for one's life, there is no price one can give to

Psalm 68:4-6

4 Sing to God, sing praises to his name; lift up a song to him who rides upon the clouds his name is the Lord—be exultant before him.

Father of orphans and protector of widow is God in his holy habitation.

God gives the desolate a home to live in; he leads out the prisoners to prosperity, but the rebellious live in a parched land.

Psalm 147:1-5


Praise the Lord! How good it is to sing praises to our God; for he is gracious, and a song of praise is fitting.

The Lord builds up Jerusalem. he gathers the outcasts of Israel.

He heals the brokenhearted, and binds up their wounds.

He determines the number of the stars; he gives to all of them their names.

Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure

Psalm 146:1-5

1 Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD, O my soul!

2 I will praise the LORD as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God all my life long.

3 Do not put your trust in princes, in mortals, in whom there is no help.

4 When their breath departs, they return to the earth; on that very day their plans perish.

5 Happy are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD their God

Psalm 27:1, 4 & 5

1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

4 One thing I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: to live in the house of the LORD, all the days of my life to behold the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in his temple.

5 For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent; he will set me high on a rock.
