1O praise the Lord, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people. 2For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the Lord endureth for ever. Praise ye the Lord.
The truth is God loves us more then us can even imagine. Repay God that kindness he gives to you. Convey your love for God tonight.

1I love the Lord, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications. 2Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live. 3The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow. 4Then called I upon the name of the Lord; O Lord, I beseech thee, deliver my soul. 5Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful. 6The Lord preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me. 7Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee. 8For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling. 9I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living. 10I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted: 11I said in my haste, All men are liars. 12What shall I render unto the Lord for all his benefits toward me? 13I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord. 14I will pay my vows unto the Lord now in the presence of all his people. 15Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints. 16O Lord, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds. 17I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the Lord. 18I will pay my vows unto the Lord now in the presence of all his people, 19In the courts of the Lord's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the Lord.
God requires much of us to serve him with a reasonable service, to always be thankful, to praise him, and keep our vows we made in graditude. However, here is the important part of this message. God wants us to call upon him for help. Because he is here to help us. He doens't want us to suffer or be alone. He is here for our comfort and help. But God can't help us unless we ask. Trust in Jesus, Count on Jesus, Call on Jesus. What is your heart prayers?

1Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake. 2Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God? 3But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased. 4Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands. 5They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not: 6They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not: 7They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat. 8They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them. 9O Israel, trust thou in the Lord: he is their help and their shield. 10O house of Aaron, trust in the Lord: he is their help and their shield. 11Ye that fear the Lord, trust in the Lord: he is their help and their shield. 12The Lord hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron. 13He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great. 14The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children. 15Ye are blessed of the Lord which made heaven and earth. 16The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord's: but the earth hath he given to the children of men. 17The dead praise not the Lord, neither any that go down into silence. 18But we will bless the Lord from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the Lord.
It took me a minute to realize the "they have not" was talking about the false idols and gods. Think of it this way, we are made in the image of God, which means God can see, smell, hear, touch and speak just like us. Those senses are why we are able to do things, to get results. The wholes biggest material thing we worship is money. Just think of all the stuff money can do, it can pay for health services, bills, food, our housing, any thing we need and even our wants. However, if you lay money on your coffee table, it does nothing, it's paper. It will just lay there collecting dust. We have to pick it up and give it to someone for the trade. The so called power that money has does nothing unless we give it to it. Since we are made in the image of God and God made us and everything in earth, the only true power belongs to him, not even to us. So how do you see God's power?
