It’s day 3 of the Praise Him Anyway Bible reading challenge and I am loving this month’s challenge! I know, I say that every month, but it’s true! Today’s reading of Psalm 30 set the tone for my day and of course, I had episodes. Did you have episodes? Episodes when I was challenged to praise because of temporary circumstances. One of those was an unexpected bill of $500. I know- that’s nothing to praise about. But when I put it in context of the total situation, it could be much, much worse. I could hardly wait to get back to writing tonight in order to write a prayer of praise for joy based on Psalm 30. So let’s do it!
A Prayer of Praise for Joy
I praise you for rescuing me.
The enemy does not have a hold on me.
I praise you for health and healing.
I praise you for saving my soul.
My lips sing your praise and I give thanks to you
For your chastisement is temporary
and your favor is permanent.
Weeping may last overnight,
but joy comes in the morning.
I praise you for strength to face another day.
I praise you for your mercy and faithfulness.
Praise you, Lord, for turning
my mourning into dancing and
my sorrow into gladness.
May I continue to praise your name
and give thanks to you forever!
Keep reading each day! This Bible reading plan is one of my FAVORITES so far!!
By his grace,
