40 DAYS JOURNEY WITH THE LORD
Moderated by Fr Justin Nzekwe
DAILY CHALLENGE: Sing praises. Continue to bless God.
DAILY THEME: Why you must praise God.
THINK ABOUT THIS: You or God who really need the other more? Do you ever imagine God as that lonely Being looking for companion? Psalm 33:7 says ‘by the Word of the Lord, the heavens were made’. If God’s Word has such power, do you think He will need anything without commanding that think to come into existence. When we worship, praise or go to God’s temple, it is for our own good. Worshiping God do not add anything to God, rather it adds to us. It wins our friendship with God, and therefore dispose us for God’s favours and blessings. Did you go to church today? Are you now ready to sing songs unto him?
Bible Reading – Luke 19:35-40
And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon. And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way.
And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen; Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.
And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.
And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.
PRAY WITH ME
Lord, all I want and long for is to praise your name. I’m nothing without you, and you deserve all my praise. I join the angels, the twenty-four elders, the choirs of heaven, the Saints and the citizens of heaven to praise you this day. Let my praises be a sweet smelling aroma before you. Let any evil power against my life begin to tremble and fall, that you may have your way in my life. And Let your Holy Spirit accompany me to make this journey faithfully to the end, so that it may bear fruit in my life. Amen.
(Say this prayer as many times as you can, today)
