Day 2: Thy Kingdom Come – Praise

DAILY NOVENA – PRAISE

LOOK…and be curious.

WAIT… with prayerful expectation.

Come Holy Spirit: Thy Kingdom Come.

READ… the text with an open mind.

As for me, I said in my prosperity, “I shall never be moved.” By your favour, O Lord, you had established me as a strong mountain; you hid your face; I was dismayed. To you, O Lord, I cried, and to the Lord I made supplication: “What profit is there in my death, if I go down to the Pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it tell of your faithfulness? Hear, O Lord, and be gracious to me! O Lord, be my helper!” You have turned my mourning into dancing; you have taken off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, so that my soul may praise you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever. (Psalm 30:6-12)

LISTEN… for a word with a willing heart.

RESPOND… with prayer and action.

Oh God, maker of mountains present in our highest heights and lowest depths, as we recognize all that you have saved us from, help us also to see the life you lead us to. Drawn from the pit of despair may we stir up dust to sing and make it our delight to dance in praise of you.
Amen.

THOUGHT

Think of your best friend

Think of that person who makes you smile. That person who, when you reflect on the comedy things you’ve done together, makes you laugh out loud. You love spending time with them, because you love who they are and what they do. You find yourself talking about them to everyone. Are you ever like that about Jesus? Do you ever find yourself blown away by who he is, and by the fact that he’s with you? If not, maybe you’ve not really grasped quite who he is. Today, try to list ten things which are worth praising him for. They don’t need to be big things, just the stuff that makes you smile. The stuff that you might tell others about, if you were telling them about your friend Jesus.
PRAY FOR 5
Pray your five come to Praise Jesus themselves.
