Observation

What important function is specifically mentioned and repeated in verses 8, 9, 24, 27, 28, 31, 35, 42, 43 and 46?

Application

Do I use music to glorify God, praising and thanking Him in song?

Prayer

Dear Father, Help me to ignore people who think that music with instruments and joyful singing is somehow irreverent or unimportant! May I ever use whatever musical abilities You have given me to praise and thank You, and if I am musically challenged, may I still make a joyful noise from my heart to You! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Pray to BLESS!

One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)

Spend some time praying for the following people and ministries.

  • Moy & Janeth Ortiz
  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Jared & Amanda Patchin (Alex, Luke)
  • Keith Rast
  • Andrea Rodriguez (Willie, Yulieta)
