A Prayer for Joy and Hope

Father, please restore to me the joy of Your salvation. Remove the spirit of heaviness from me, and refresh me with a spirit of hope. Please grant me joy and peace, and renew my strength. Protect me and my family from trouble, Lord. And give us a song of praise for You. Amen.

Hand raised in worship

Take time each day to express respect and devotion to your Father. Sing to Him. Thank Him in prayer for something He’s done in your life. Tell other people about what He’s doing. Search your music streaming service for “worship” or “praise,” then listen to renew your mind with reverence for Him.

How will you draw near to God today?

Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!

PSALM 95:6

Develop a Heart of Worship

When you think of worship, what comes to mind?

Worship is more than just singing songs at church—it’s daily expressing our reverence, awe, and praise towards God.

No matter what we go through, God is always worthy of our worship. And it’s never been more important to prioritize it.

Today, take a few minutes to pause and remember God’s faithfulness. (You may even want to sing praises to Him or tell Him what’s on your mind.)
