Rejoice in the Lord: Psalm 104:33-34

33 I will sing to the Lord all my life;
I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
34 May my meditation be pleasing to him,
as I rejoice in the Lord.

He is our provider, our protector, our hope, and our source of joy.


33 I will sing my song to the Lord as long as I live!
Every day I will sing my praises to God.
34 May you be pleased with every sweet thought I have about you,
for you are the source of my joy and gladness.

Will you take time today to rejoice in the Lord, giving Him thanks and praise?

Prayer: Our Heavenly Father, we rejoice and sing praises to You. Let our meditations, songs, and thoughts be pleasing to You. We thank you for Your forgiveness, mercy, and unconditional love. Lord, you are the focus of our days, our source of joy and gladness. We rejoice in You, Lord!

The Power of Prayer

Prayer is communication with God. Prayer is conversing with The Lord with an open heart and mind. It’s letting the Holy Spirit guide content and flow; while taking time to be still and listen for God’s response. Prayer doesn’t need a set time, place, or form. It is a communication of our soul to Our Father. Prayer can be informal or formal, a joy-filled thank you, spontaneous or scheduled. Prayer may be intercessory, asking for help for someone else, or a request for healing. Or prayer may be a plea for help, or a petition asking God to intervene, or a confession asking the Lord for forgiveness. Prayer maybe a song or a poem or just sitting quietly in adoration. The power in prayer is not in the words that we say, but worship that praises God and draws us closer to Him.

Prayer shouldn’t be casual or sporadic, dictated only by the needs of the moment. Prayer should be as much a part of our lives as breathing. ― Billy Graham

Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts. ― Mother Teresa

“What wings are to a bird, and sails to a ship, so is prayer to the soul.”
― Corrie Ten Boom

No one can pray and worry at the same time. When we worry, we aren’t praying. When we pray, we aren’t worrying. ― Max Lucado

“Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire?”
― Corrie Ten Boom

Righteousness and Justice: Psalm 89:14-15

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; Mercy and truth go before Your face. Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! They walk, O LORD, in the light of Your countenance.

Psalm 89: 14-15 (NKJV)

God’s throne is built on a foundation of righteousness and justice. The ways of the Lord are of mercy, truth, and compassion. Children of God sing joyful praise with thanksgiving for His love, forgiveness, and protection. While they move forward, walking in the blessed light of His countenance, following His path, extolling His grace. They are wrapped in God’s love, secure in His promises.

When you feel overwhelmed by worldly problems, do you find peace knowing God’s righteousness and justice?

Prayer: Our Heavenly Father, we are thankful for your righteousness and justice. Lord, we are blessed by Your mercy, compassion, and truth. We thank and praise You joyfully for Your love and forgiveness. Like the vibrant, radiating colors of the phlox flowers, let us be vibrant in our walk, radiating Your light. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen

Live by Faith: 2 Corinthians 5:7-9

Our life is lived by faith. We do not live by what we see in front of us. We are sure we will be glad to be free of these bodies. It will be good to be at home with the Lord. So if we stay here on earth or go home to Him, we always want to please Him.

2 Corinthians 5:7-9 (NLV)

When we live by faith, we trust and rely on God’s Word. We walk God’s path for us, listening to the Holy Spirit’s direction. Faith allows us to trust in the unseen, to rely upon with confidence, Jesus, and God’s Word. When we live by faith, we look forward with happiness to spending eternity at home with our Lord in Heaven. As children of God, living in faith, we want to please God by doing good works, with compassion and love.

When we live by faith, we trust in God. When you are uncertain, distracted, or confused, do you rely on Him?

Prayer: Our Heavenly Father, we thank you for your forgiveness, grace, and love. Help us to grow in faith and guide us along Your path. Let us trust with our hearts the unseen, and live by faith. Teach us to follow Your Word, to be good Christians, and to help others. Like the bright petals of the coneflower radiate from the center of the flower, let us shine bright in our faith, and radiate Your love. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen

God’s Glory: Romans 5:2

Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory

Romans 5:2 (NLV)

By accepting Christ into our lives, we have become pardoned offenders. Through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, we have been reconciled with God Our Father. Through faith, we have become true believers, able to experience the undeserved privilege of the grace of God. We stand in His grace, praising Him, rejoicing in the confidence of sharing God’s glory.

“We find ourselves standing where we always hoped we might stand-out in the wide-open spaces of God’s grace and glory, standing tall and shouting our praise”

Romans 5:2b (The Message Bible)

Are you joyfully praising God and looking forward to sharing God’s glory?

Prayer: Our Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your love and forgiveness. Help us to grow in faith and confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing Your glory. As the bold and bright crabapple blossoms brighten spring days, let us be bold in our faith and bright with joy and confidence. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen

Children of God: 1 John 3:1

3 See what amazing love the Father has given us! Because of it, we are called children of God. And that’s what we really are! The world doesn’t know us because it didn’t know him.

1 John 3:1 (NIRV)

What amazing love God our Father has given us. His love for us is unconditional, forgiving, compassionate, and patient. In the completeness of His love and care, He has called us children of God. As children of God, we walk in faith and exhibit our likeness to God by showing His love to others. We were ransomed by Jesus, saved by His blood. The world does not know us because it never knew or accepted Christ or God’s word.

How do we show the world that we are children of God?

Prayer: Our loving Father, we thank You for your forgiveness and grace. We are blessed to be known as children of God, loved by our Heavenly Father. Teach us to walk in faith, live in hope, and follow Your path for us. Let us love one another and share Your compassion. Like the brightly “robed” open blossoms of the lilies, let us be robed in Your truth and open-hearted to others. In Jesus’ holy and loving name. Amen
