Consider praying this prayer out loud as a declaration of praise . . .
I will give thanks to You, O Lord, and call on Your name. I will make known among the nations—in this nation—the amazing things that You have done. I will sing to You and praise You alone. Teach me what it means to “glory in Your name” that my heart might always rejoice in You. For it is my great desire to seek Your face always and remember the wonders that You have done. I give thanks to You, Lord, for You are good. Your love endures forever!
You remembered me when I was lost and without You and freed me from the enemy! Your love endures forever! While I was still in my sin, Christ died for me! Hallelujah! Your love endures forever! You have not kept a record of my sin, or treat me as my sin deserves, but through Christ You have removed my sin from me as far as the east is from the west and remember it no more! Hallelujah! Your faithful love endures forever!
I will bless Your name, O Lord, and in Your name I will lift up my hands, for Your faithful love endures forever! I will praise You, O Lord, there is no God like You in heaven or on earth—You who keep Your covenant of love with Your servants who continue wholeheartedly in Your way. There is nothing too difficult for You! Your love endures forever! Yours is the greatness O Lord and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is Yours.
You are exalted as head over all. Wealth and honor come from You alone for You are the ruler of all things. In Your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all. And I join with all of heaven, and Your people everywhere in giving You thanks and praising Your glorious name! Hallelujah! Your faithful love endures forever! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Amen and Amen!

Praise God for his matchless grace. Give thanks that his grace is sufficient for you in every situation. Confess any do-it-yourself efforts in which you have rejected God’s grace and tried to go it alone. Commit yourself to being a channel of that grace to others. Ask that God will meet your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus (Phil. 4:19) and that his grace will be poured out abundantly.
Lift up the names of the leaders of your nation, state/province, and community, asking that the Lord’s strength and wisdom come to full maturity in each one as they learn to rely on him.
“Our business in prayer is not to prescribe, but to subscribe to the wisdom and will of God; to refer our case to him, and then leave it with him.” —Anonymous
