Before beginning our day above everything we need to pray. But even that discipline will be useless and dry without the help of the Holy Spirit. When we go to our knees and quickly bring our needs as we see them we miss the moment for which prayer is designed to bring us.

There is a song that says, “There’s a garden where Jesus is waiting. And He asks you to come meet Him there.” He is the gentle Master waiting for us to hear what He has to say. Of how much more value will we be to those around us when we have heard from Jesus than when we simply repeat our morning prayers? How much more we will have to give when we have had a drink from the well of Bethlehem?

And David said with longing, “Oh, that someone would give me a drink of the water from the well of Bethlehem, which is by the gate!” II Samuel 23:15

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
