Prayer and Praise ~ Sunday Devotion
Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. James 5:13 (NIV)
Prayer and Praise Day happens in my free Facebook group every Thursday. Why? We’re all going through something. You might be in a season of struggle, or something great might be going on. Each day, we face new circumstances. Some days are easier than others. You might get up with the weight of the world on your shoulders, or you could get up with an extra bounce in your step. The point is that we’re to bring it all to God in prayer and praise.
God created us for community. We’re in this together. I created this space so women can find motivation from God’s Word to live a healthy life. Something I never want to get lost in the message is that faith is the key essential ingredient in developing a sustainable healthy life. We take our struggles – with weight and body image and everything else that life throws at us – to God. We also praise Him for progress made, freedom found, answers to prayer, and the very breath in our lungs.
Prayer and praise keeps us focused. The Lord wants to be involved in everything that we do. Our first reaction when we are troubled should be prayer and to ask others to support us in prayer. And our first response when something makes us happy should be praise to the One who makes all good things happen. Bonus is to share it with others because God gets the glory and oftentimes those who hear it are encouraged on their own journey of faith.
Action Step: Share your prayer requests and/or praise reports with a brother or sister in Christ. Let’s be there for one another today.
