Today’s Prayer Challenge: Exercising My Joy in the Lord

“16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord” ~ Colossians 3:16 (KJV)

Dear Lord,

We first and foremost come to You giving You all the praise, glory, and honor as the one and only true and living God. We thank You for salvation — sending Your Son to die on the cross for our sins so that we can have eternal life with You in heaven. Please forgive us of our sins, and we thank You in advance for helping us to overcome our weaknesses and shortcomings.

Lord, we come with a special prayer today pledging to delight in the study of the scriptures. May we allow Your Word to dwell in us richly in all wisdom, and let us not keep the joys of Your Word to ourselves. May we sing Your praises day and night — not only to Your glory but to the encouragement and enrichment of our brothers and sisters in Christ. 

It is in the magnificent name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, that we pray. Amen.
