Pray Today: Day 6, Israel’s Song


Read & Consider


Read    Exodus 15:2-3

Consider

Let’s be honest, it’s pretty mind blowing; you’ve just experienced something phenomenal. Imagine yourself in the story, think about what you have gone through walking across the Red Sea (re-read Exodus 14 v 21-31). How have you felt? Slightly terrified watching the high water walls? Elated? In awe of God when you arrive safely at the other side? Thankful? Dumbstruck?

Perhaps you’ve reached the shore on the other side and you just want to kneel in the sand and bow down in adoration. Maybe your feet are wanting to dance and your mouth shout out. Or desperate to make some noise and bang a tambourine like Miriam does in verse 20.

Take a moment to ponder who the God we serve is, what he is capable of and the obstacles in your life He can get you through. We are on the winning side of the battle. Let’s remember who God is.

 


Over to you


Pray for

  • A desperation to praise God throughout our current circumstances
  • Eyes to see those things we can praise God for in our homes, church and world

Question

What are you thankful for today? Maybe your health or maybe you actually found some flour, or even successfully negotiated teenager mathematics. However big or small, say aloud that praise.

How can you use this story to remind yourself of God’s awe-inspiring strength?

Challenge

Think how you pictured the story of the Israelites travelling and arriving across the sea. How can you apply those emotions and sensations to your life today? What is God saying to you through this for you & our Church?

Optional extra Family activity

Ask your children what things they can praise God for today. You could start a prayer jar: write all the things down and add to them for the 40 days.

Got a little one? How about getting some pots and pans out and make as much noise as possible shouting out how good God is.
