Heavenly Father, I come before You giving You all the glory, honour, praise and thanksgiving, from my heart and my soul. Your Word says that when the praises go up, the blessings come down. Therefore, I lift up my heart and praise You this morning, expecting the unexpected. Beforehand, I ask You for forgiveness of sins of my thoughts, words and deeds and ask You to have Your way.
