“If you can’t change your circumstances, change your perspective.” If you’re having a bad day or a difficult time in life, worshiping the Father will change your perspective.
Take a deep breath and focus on what you are saying as you read this out loud:
Adoration for Our God
Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul and all that is within me, bless Your Holy Name. I adore You and make known to You my adoration and love this day.
I bless Your Name, Elohim, the Creator of heaven and earth, Who was in the beginning. It is You Who made me, and You have crowned me with glory and honor. You are the God of might and strength.
I bless Your Name, El-Shaddai, the God Almighty of Blessings. You nourish and supply us. You are All-Bountiful and All-Sufficient.
I bless Your Name, Adonai, my Lord and my Master. You are Jehovah – the Completely Self-Existing One, always present, revealed in Jesus Who is the same yesterday, today and forever.
I bless Your Name, Jehovah-Jireh, the One Who sees my needs and provides for them.
I bless Your Name, Jehovah-Rapha, my Healer and the One Who makes bitter experiences sweet. You sent Your Word and healed me. You forgave all of my iniquities and You healed all of my diseases.
I bless Your Name, Jehovah-M’Kaddesh, the Lord my Sanctifier. You have set me apart for Yourself.
Jehovah-Nissi, You are my Victory, my Banner, and my Standard. Your banner over me is love. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, You will lift up a standard against him.
Jehovah-Shalom, I bless Your Name. You are my Peace – the peace which transcends all understanding, which garrisons and mounts guard over my heart and mind in Christ Jesus.

Jehovah-Rohi, You are my Shepherd and I shall not want for any good or beneficial thing.
Hallelujah to Jehovah-Shammah Who will never leave or forsake me. You are always there. I take comfort and am encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper, I will not be seized with alarm – I will not fear or dread or be terrified. What can man do to me?
I worship and adore You, El-Elyon, the Most High God Who is the First Cause of everything, the Possessor of the heavens and earth. You are the Everlasting-God, the Great-God, the Living-God, the Merciful-God, the Faithful-God, the Mighty-God. You are Truth, Justice, Righteousness, and Perfection. You are El-Elyon – the Highest Sovereign of the heavens and the earth.
Father, You have exalted above all else Your Name and Your Word, and You have magnified Your Word above all Your Name! The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and His Name is Jesus.
Hallowed be Thy Name!
Comments by Donna:
When we focus on who God is, our light and momentary trouble seems to weigh less. Our time on this earth is so short and the only thing of value is how we live it amidst our circumstances. Trials and tribulations are allowed to enable us to build character and compassion. Use your bad times wisely. It’s not much fun to “repeat the class.” I want to learn as much as I can – with the right attitude – the first time around.
