Isaiah Affirmative Prayer and Praising The LORD 25:1-8

Praise to the Lord

       Lord, you are my God;
    I will exalt you and praise your name,
for in perfect faithfulness
    you have done wonderful things,
    things planned long ago.
 You have made the city a heap of rubble,
    the fortified town a ruin,
the foreigners’ stronghold a city no more;
    it will never be rebuilt. 

Therefore strong peoples will honor you;
    cities of ruthless nations will revere you.
 You have been a refuge for the poor,
    a refuge for the needy in their distress,
 shelter from the storm
    and a shade from the heat.
For the breath of the ruthless
    is like a storm driving against a wall
     and like the heat of the desert.
You silence the uproar of foreigners;
    as heat is reduced by the shadow of a cloud,
    so the song of the ruthless is stilled.

 On this mountain the Lord Almighty will prepare
    a feast of rich food for all peoples,
a banquet of aged wine—
    the best of meats and the finest of wines.
 On this mountain he will destroy
    the shroud that enfolds all peoples,
the sheet that covers all nations;
     he will swallow up death forever.
The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears
    from all faces;
he will remove his people’s disgrace
    from all the earth.
The Lord has spoken.
