Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!
Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing. Psalm 100:1-2 (NKJV)
The other day I was driving a half hour to a doctor appointment for my son. Finding myself a little overwhelmed and not sure how to pray, I started singing songs in the order of My TEA CUPP Prayers. As I poured out my heart to Jesus in song, He comforted my soul, and my son’s doctor appointment went well. Did you know even Jesus and His disciples sang a hymn before He was betrayed and sent to the cross? God uses music to touch our souls. Here are a few of my favorites:
T is for Thanksgiving
Once Again I Thank You
E is for Exalting
Every Knee will Bow before the Lion and the Lamb
A is for Admitting
C is for Calling
Here I Am, Lord
U is for Understanding
In Christ Alone
P is for Promises
On Eagles Wings
P is for Petitions
The Lord’s Prayer
Today’s TEA CUPP: You can do this, too! Collect your favorite praise songs and put them in order for your own TEA CUPP time in song. Load them on your iPod or smartphone to play at such times as driving in the car, exercising, or doing household chores. Come before His presence with singing!
And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives. Mark 14:26 (NKJV)
