Prayer For Rejoicing Different
As David wrote & sang the Psalms in the wilderness; Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego stuck with it in the furnace of fire; Jonah prayed in the belly of a fish; Paul and Silas sang in jail; and Jesus was thankful of God's will even as he was tortured. And you? You too, are rejoicing right smack-dab in the middle of your day. And it’s making a difference.
Psalms 50:15 NLT
Then call on me when you are in trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory.”
God, I'm not feeling very joyful right now even though you invite me to give you praise. But here's what I'm going to do...I'm going to give it a try. I need your help. I'm knee deep in trouble, but I'm choosing not to worry. I'm going to trust you more. I'm going to stress less. And I'm going to put my grumbling on "MUTE". I'm giving you glory in the midst of my pain.
I'm going to make a difference in my trouble by turning up my joy. When I'm banged up, have bird drops all over my windshield, coffee spilled on my clothes, and no money to pay the bill that's arrived, I'm calling out to God, and giving him the glory anyway. I know, IT'S MAKING A DIFFERENCE in my day.
