Daniel 6:26-27

I make a decree that in every dominion of my kingdom men must tremble and fear before the God of Daniel.

For He is the living God,
And steadfast forever;
His kingdom is the one which
shall not be destroyed,
And His dominion shall
endure to the end.

He delivers and rescues,
And He works signs and wonders
In heaven and on earth,
Who has delivered Daniel
from the power of the lions.
Daniel 6:26-27

Let’s praise the Lord in prayer together! God tells us to praise Him and what better way to do this than to praise Him using the truths found in God’s Word!

This practice of using God’s Word to praise God in prayer has helped me to think about who God says He is and has increased my faith as I have come to know Him better! Would you like to join me?

After praying with me using the audio, I would encourage you to write the Bible verse used in prayer on a card. (Two simple 4″x6″ prayer cards are available as a free download, or feel free to use a blank index card you already have.) Your prayer cards can be used again and again as you continue to talk to God in prayer.

What is a Bible verse you like to use as you praise the Lord in prayer? How has using God’s Word to praise the Lord in prayer helped you? Share in the comments below!

Christ Arose

Are you looking for a hymn to sing with your family this Easter?

“Christ Arose” is a wonderful hymn to consider. The words found in the three verses of this hymn are a great reminder of the glorious truth that Christ rose again.

 

Christ Arose

Chorus

Up from the grave He arose
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes.
He arose a victor from the dark domain
And He lives forever with His saints to reign!
He arose! He arose!
Hallelujah! Christ arose!

Verse 1

Low in the grave He lay, Jesus my Saviour
Waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord.

Verse 2

Vainly they watch His bed, Jesus my Saviour
Vainly they seal the dead, Jesus my Lord.

Verse 3

Death cannot keep his prey, Jesus my Saviour
He tore the bars away, Jesus my Lord.

Words by: Robert Lowry

Thirsting for God

Psalm 42:1-8

Voice: Marian Thomsen | Harp by Kristen Thomsen | "Hu Oseh Shalom" © 2008 Joanna Mell - Used with Permission

Let’s be like a tree. Like a tree that is planted by water. A tree ready to bring forth fruit in its season. Let’s plant ourselves by the living water of God’s Word. Come be refreshed as we meditate on God’s Word together.

 

Psalm 42:1-8

As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.

My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?

My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?

When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.

Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.

O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar.

Deep calleth unto deep at the noice of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.

Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.
