Pray and Praise

Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. James 5:13 (NIV)

Not sure how to begin your TEA CUPP Prayers with Jesus today?  Maybe today isn’t the day you want to begin with “T for Thanks.”  Maybe you have something heavy on your heart.  Let’s look at this verse from James… Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Hey, if you are in trouble, jump straight to the “P for Petitions” and pour out your heart to God.  Don’t hold back.  Give Him all your tears and sorrow.  Tell Jesus everything!

Trust in Him at all times, you people;
Pour out your heart before Him;
God
is a refuge for us. Psalm 62:8 (NKJV)

Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. Hey, are you having a good day?  Has God sent blessings your way?  Are you happy to be alive?  Now is the time to sing songs of praise!  Exalt His Name and tell Jesus how wonderful He is! You can even call a friend and share what a great God we have.  Exalt His Name together!

Bless the LORD, O my soul;
And all that is within me,
bless His holy name! Psalm 103:1 (NKJV)

Where are you in your prayers today?  Is it time to pray or time to praise?  Many times for me it is both.  Have a blessed CUPP of TEA with Jesus today!

A time to weep,
And a time to laugh;
A time to mourn,
And a time to dance.
Ecclesiastes 3:4 (NKJV)

New International Version (NIV)
