A Prayer of Praise

When we pray we shouldn't just ask God or even only thank Him, but we should in addition to these give Him praise and glory as the Most High King over all creation, who saved us through a death He could have chose not to accept. But instead He died for every last soul.

Here is St. Francis of Assisi's Prayer in Praise of God given to Brother Leo:

You are holy, Lord, the only God,
and Your deeds are wonderful.
You are strong.
You are great.
You are the Most High.
You are the Almighty.
You, Holy Father, are King of Heaven and earth.
You are Three and One, Lord God, all good.
You are good, all good, supreme good.
Lord God, living and true.
You are love. You are wisdom
You are humiliy. You are endurance.
You are rest. You are peace.
You are joy and gladness.
You are justice and moderation.
You are all our reaches, and you suffice for us.
You are beauty.
You are gentleness.
You are our protector.
You are our guardian and defender.
You are our courage.
You are our haven and our hope.
You are our faith, our great consolation.
You are our eternal life, great and wonderful Lord,
God almightly, merciful Savior.
