Psalm 47
1 Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy! 2 For the LORD, the Most High, is to be feared, a great king over all the earth.

Psalm 48
1 Great is the LORD and greatly to be praised in the city of our God! His holy mountain,

This week one of the Kindle books that was featured by one of my favorite bloggers and it was a book on prayer called Pray the Scriptures Bible Psalms and Proverbs.  It takes a section of the Psalm and rewrites it in more of a prayer.  Here is Psalm 48:

You're great and you deserve the highest praise. You dwell among your people on your holy mountain. Your presence graces your palace. Kings march against you only to flee in fear when they see your dwelling. They tremble like women in labor. I'd only heard of your power, but now I've seen it with my own eyes. As I come near  you I'll reflect on your mercy. Praise for you reaches to the ends of the earth.  I'm glad because of your wise judgments. I'll tell everyone who comes after me that you are God forever and ever. You'll guide us to death and beyond.
