Praying the Bible ~ Psalms 126:1-3

Praying through verses or passages of the Bible is a great way to help you pray according to the will and desires of God. Below is a passage of Scripture and a sample prayer. I would encourage you to pray that prayer, or, even better, read the passage and pray as God leads you.

Text: Psalm 126:1-3
When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream. Our mouths were filled with laughter then, and our tongues with shouts of joy. Then they said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.” The Lord had done great things for us; we were joyful. (Christian Standard Bible)

Prayer
Father, you are the Awesome God and Source of eternal treasures. You have given us abundantly, infinitely more than we deserve by giving us your Son. Father, fill our thoughts and dreams with the hopes and joys of eternity. May we be filled with laughter and joy because of our salvation. May the world around us look at our lives and realize that you have done great things for us. May our joy in Christ be contagious and open doors for many others to trust in Jesus and share our hope. Amen.
