O LORD, I Call Upon You

Wonderful is our God to have given us hope through His Son Jesus. By no other name are we saved. By no other name do we have eternity held for us as a reward. Blessed is the name of the Lord our God, who has shown us His love by sacrificing His Son in our stead.

“O LORD, I call upon you; hasten to me!
Give ear to my voice when I call to you!
Let my prayer be counted as incense before you,
and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice!”

(Psalms 141:1-2)

Let us raise our hands in praise to the Eternal, who listens to the righteous. Let us bow our knees to Him who guards our way, blesses our plans and prospers our lives. Give ear to Him who listens to our prayers, for He is good always.

No other God can deliver us from evil as the Lord our God can. If He can raise mountains from an empty field, spawn life from deep oceans and build planets out of nothingness, how difficult would it be for Him to give us peace in our time of calamity?

Give thanks to God, for He is a blessing to all who believe. He will encourage the faithful, protect the weak and raise the dead to everlasting life. Show honor to Him who gives life to all, for He will be there always, never forsaking us.

O Lord, I call upon You.
