You are the King eternal, immortal, invisible. Before the mountains were brought forth or you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. You are the same yesterday, today and forever. At the beginning of time you laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They shall perish, but you endure. All of them shall age as though they were articles of clothing. You shall treat them as a change of garments, and they shall be discarded. But you are the same, and your years shall never end.I Tim. 1:17; Psa. 90:2; Heb. 13:8; Psa. 102:25-27.
You are God. You never change, and for that reason alone we are not consumed. Are you not from eternity, O Lord our God, our holy one? You are the everlasting God, the Lord and Creator of the farthest reaches of the earth. You never faint with exhaustion. You never grow weary. There is no way that your understanding can ever be comprehended. Mal. 3:6; Hab. 1:12; Isa. 40:28.
This prayer is from the praise section of one of my favorite devotional books: the revised edition of Matthew Henry’s A Way To Pray (Banner of Truth, 2010), done by O. Palmer Robertson with the assistance of students at African Bible University of Uganda. I hope to put up a few more selections in time from this exceptional volume.
