Sing Prayers of Praise

A church sings joyfully

And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.—Acts 16:25 (KJV)

In the above verse, Paul and Silas sang their prayers and God set them free. When you feel let down and discouraged, lift your spirits by singing praises to God. It may sound counter-intuitive or seem difficult to sing when you are sad, but try it. Feel your spirit lift.

Today's Prayer:

Lord, thank You for the joy I feel when I sing your praises— the joy that sets me free and takes me above my own pain and discouragement.
