David's Prayer of Thanksgiving


I am musing over David's grand prayer of Thanksgiving located in 1 Chronicles 29: 10-13. He has commissioned Solomon to build the Temple and told how much he had gathered for the task. The leaders were so challenged that they gave a tremedous amount of supplies for the construction of the Temple also. David then proceeds to give God the glory before all the people by praying this prayer. Join me this month in considering what he is saying in these three verses.

1 Chron. 29_10-13 (KJV): "Wherefore David blessed the LORD before all the congregation: and David said, Blessed be thou, LORD God of Israel our father, for ever and ever. Thine, O LORD is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all. Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all. Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name."

Let's see where God leads us in this prayer.
