Pray For One Hour 9

Matthew 26:40-41, “And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?  Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

IX. Pray for one hour:  Singing – Worship in song.  Psalm 100:2, “Serve the LORD with gladness: come before His presence with singing.”

A dear man and his wife had been married for sixty (60) years and two (2) weeks and this dear wife went to Heaven.  The husband gave account of his wife and her time of prayer.  He told how people from all over would call her with their requests.  He told how his wife would immediate retreat to their bedroom and close the door.  He told how she would begin her prayer time with singing.  He said that was always how he knew she was finished.  I must admit this moves me to tears.

Music has a great part in worship.  We need to sing before the LORD.  He does not care if it is a joyful noise or a glad rackett.  He says to do it and if He commands it He intends us to do it.  The next time you retreat to your closet have a song of worship ready for Him.  He will love it.

So, how are you doing?
