1 Passage: Psalm 95:1-6
1 Verse: Verse 2. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.
1 Prayer: Thank You, Father, for being present with me. Thank You for inviting me to fix my heart and my mind, my hopes and my desires fully upon You. Thank You for being utterly and absolutely worthy of thanks. My thoughts are all too often filled up with so many complaints and critiques that I forget to be thankful. I neglect the great good that was and is and is to come in our relationship together. Considering all that I think I have reason to feel sorrowful about, the fact that Your goodness is great enough to make joyful shouting and thankfulness perfectly appropriate nonetheless is something almost too difficult to imagine. There is no denial or diminishment of suffering or wrong or pain or loss or grief, but a recognition that even with the very real burdens of all these, You still are patiently working all things ultimately toward good. And for that I am thankful despite my fearful and grumbling and discontented heart. For that I shout joyfully to You with psalms.
