Verse 1 . . . Psalm 103

It's with deep Love 

and affection, 

from the depth of my soul, 

I praise the Lord. 

He is my every provision.

His name is above all names 

high and lifted up 

and His Glory covers 

the whole earth.

His Compound Name 

is like no other!

Everything is under  . . .

The Umbrella Of His Name. 

Bless and affectionately praise the Lord, O my soul, And all that is [deep] within me, bless His holy name.

Psalms 103:1 AMP 


When you study the depth of God's compound name, you will discover what His name means and identifies the completeness of everything He is. It will overawe you with the details of what His name represents. 

Jesus encouraged us as His disciples to pray this way; Our Father … hallowed be your name, Math 6:9. This is often referred to as The Lord's prayer but it's actually the disciple's prayer because we were asked to pray after this manner. The spirit of what Jesus said is captured so beautifully here in The Passion Translation.

Pray like this: ‘Our Beloved Father, dwelling in the heavenly realms, may the glory of your name be the center on which our lives turn.

Matthew 6:9 TPT

This is the example prayer Jesus gave us to model. 

Jesus prayed the "Lord's prayer" in John 17:6 - when He prays for us prior to His crucifixion and going to heaven. If you do a study on the points He highlights to us, it will transform how you live and pray. 

Having a revelation of these principles is the reason I wrote in the last 2 lines of the poem 

"Everything is under  . . .

The Umbrella Of His Name."


# Have you ever studied the compound names of God and what they shall mean to your faith? How would you enhance your faith with the revelation of these facts?

# Were you aware of the preface Jesus gave us in Math 6:9, re praying using this model? How do you now understand the important differences between the 2 references to how Jesus prayed?

# How will you now view this Psalm considering its opening verse?
