Blessed be the Lord God of Israel
From everlasting to everlasting!.. 1 Chronicles 16:36 (NKJV)
When God allowed His people to bring the Ark of the Covenant back to Jerusalem, David sang a beautiful song of praise to the Lord. These verses of David’s song and those in the story around it provide words we can use when we pray to Jesus.
