When You free us from captivity to sin we are filled with peace, joy, and laughter. You put a song in our heart and a praise on our lips. Thank-you for the great things that You do for Your people. By the power of the Holy Spirit, may we remember that tears lead to rejoicing.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Psalm 126:1-6 NKJV
“When the Lord brought back the captivity of Zion, We were like those who dream.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter, And our tongue with singing. Then they said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.” The Lord has done great things for us, And we are glad. Bring back our captivity, O Lord, As the streams in the South. Those who sow in tears Shall reap in joy. He who continually goes forth weeping, Bearing seed for sowing, Shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, Bringing his sheaves with him.”
