Praise

"Praise the name of the Lord." Psalm 148:5

Yes,
Praise the name of Yahweh!
He who made Himself known,
The Most High, He who IS,
The One Supreme,
The  One without limits,
Who spoke and the Universe sculpted.

Yes,
Praise the name Adonai!
Our Lord and Master,
Who we belong to,
Who rightfully are His,
Even with our sin-flaws.

Yes,
Praise the name Elohim!
Our God who is THE Beyond,
Who is outside of time and space,
Whose Providence is the path of the Universe.

Yes,
Praise the name El Shaddai!
He is Mountain Strength, Power,
But also Breast for He is THE Nourisher --
He sustains, supplies and satifies.

Yes,
Praise the name Yahweh Raah!
He is THE Shepherd,
Our Companion, Partner,
Who leads and guides us
To HIS pastures.

Yes,
Praise the name Yahweh Shalom!
He is Peace, the Ancient of Days,
Who offers us everlasting peace,
He is the Banner before us in battle,
Whose victory is peace.

Above all,
Praise the name Jesus-Given --

Father who begets the family of the Universe;
Son who comrades us in our journey, and
Holy Spirit who sanctifies us in our freedom.
 

Yes,
"Praise the name of the Lord." Psalm 148:5

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
