From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised. (Psalm 113:3)

Psalm 113 is a beautiful prayer, urging us to praise the Lord our God always.

Psalm 113
1 Praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord, you his servants;
praise the name of the Lord.
2 Let the name of the Lord be praised,
both now and forevermore.
3 From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets,
the name of the Lord is to be praised.

4 The Lord is exalted over all the nations,
his glory above the heavens.
5 Who is like the Lord our God,
the One who sits enthroned on high,
6 who stoops down to look
on the heavens and the earth?

7 He raises the poor from the dust
and lifts the needy from the ash heap;
8 he seats them with princes,
with the princes of his people.
9 He settles the childless woman in her home
as a happy mother of children.

Praise the Lord.

Since the Book of Psalm is the 19th book of the Bible, the identifier of Psalm 113:3 is 19+113+3=135. Hence, we arrive at the following conclusion

CONCLUSION. Through the Lord’s Prayer, we can praise the name of the Lord from the rising of the Sun to the place where it sets.

Indeed, assume that at the Lord’s Prayer times (10.35 am, 10.53 am, 1.35 pm, 1.53 pm, 3.15 pm, 3.51 pm, 5.13 pm, 5.31 pm), the Lord’s Prayer begins in Fiji, which, by virtue of its Coordinated Universal Time (UTC+12) and its coordinate on the 180th meridian (16o9’S 180oE) is the first country to see the Sun rises. Then like a tsunami, emanating from Fiji, the Lord’s Prayer reverberates around the world. As the Lord’s Prayer follows the Sun into new time zones, believers take over the prayer baton in the global glorification of the Father and the Son, continually, unending. Consequently, the lives of billions of people across the planet will be uplifted and changed for the better, a fitting preparation of humankind for the return of Jesus Christ (Luke 12:35 – 36, NIV):

35 Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning, 36 like servants waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him.

With the Lord’s Prayer constantly on our lips, our eyes are bound to be fixed continually on Jesus Christ who is the Author and Finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2).
