Prayer of Adoration

Lord my God, you are great and almighty. You are creator of heaven and earth. You are high and lifted up. The heavens, even the highest heavens cannot contain you. You have made your glory known to us by your wonderful creation. Your wisdom displayed in the intrinsic details of the nature around us.

Yet in your splendor, greatness, and majesty, you would take notice of us. You love us so much that you went to the extent of sending your Son, Jesus, to die for us, to pay for our sins and our wickedness. You offered redemption, salvation, restoration, and even adoption to your royal family.

What can i say but thank you Lord. What can i do but surrender my life to you, pledge my allegiance to you. You have brought me out of darkness and into your marvelous light. You have freed me from the bondage of sin. No longer am i in its power and grip.

Forgive me Lord, when i go back into my sins – giving in to its desires, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes. If you treat us with the way our sins deserved then who would be able to stand? Thank you Lord for your mercy and your grace, your kindness and your unfailing love. I am never worthy to be loved by you. I can never achieve your righteousness on my own accord and strength. It is only by your grace that i stand before you today, entering your throne room, in the beauty of your presence, basking in your glory.

Purify my heart, cleanse me Lord, i pray. Remove from me all that is hindering me from you, all the sins that entangles and weighs me down. I love you Lord, my God. You are my portion, my inheritance, my reward. Indeed, there is no one like you. You are the only true and living God and there is no other. All honor and praise be to you, my Savior and my God.
