When you are awed by God, pray this psalm to God, expressing honestly your deepest feelings.
Bravo, God, bravo!
Gods and all angels shout, "Encore!"
In awe before the glory,
in awe before God's visible power.
Stand at attention!
Dress your best to honor him!
God's thunder spits fire.
God thunders, the wilderness quakes;
[God] makes the desert of Kadesh shake.
God's thunder set the oak trees dancing
A wild dance, whirling;
the pelting rain strips their branches.
We fall to our knees -- we call out, "Glory!"

Back to Praying the Psalms.
I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
