Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations. (Psalm 100:1-5)
I rejoiced with those who said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.” (Psalm 122:1)
Meditation Thought: Gathering with brothers and sisters to worship God should be an occasion of great joy!
Prayer: Lord of Heaven and earth, You are worthy of my praise. I pray for an attitude of joy and thanksgiving when it is time to worship You. I pray that I will carry that joy with me as I go throughout my daily activities. Forgive me for those times I have not worshiped You in the right spirit and right attitude. May my worship to You be an encouragement to others. Through Your son and my Savior I pray, Amen.
