what struck me immediately about this psalm is where it begins, with a loud chorus of praise to God, acknowledging Who He is:

‘Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the splendor of his[a] holiness.’ [vs.1-2]

that even the heavenly beings must sing praises to God. that is great – often i rush into prayer with my list of needs or cries for help only to be reminded that it is always good to spend some time being still and just knowing this God that i am interacting with – when i take time to focus on God then His heart and character and desire to show Love to His children comes to the fore and the prayers i pray will be more relevant and meaningful anyways and have more of a ring of ‘Your kingdom’ and ‘Your Will’ be done instead of ‘my’ and ‘mine’.

‘The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord is enthroned as King forever.
The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.’ [vs.8-9]

actually that is what i like about this psalm – it’s a very God psalm – all about Him – The Lord… The Lord… The Lord…
sometimes our prayers should look like this – maybe to remind ourselves more than God that sometimes it’s good for us simply to love Him back and not just come to Him in need or crisis…
