Remember what Christ taught, and let his words enrich your lives and make you wise; teach them to each other and sing them out in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing to the Lord with thankful hearts.
Colossians 3:16 TLB
The Psalmist David says, "I have thought much about your words and stored them in my heart so that they would hold me back from sin, Psalm 119:11. He stored the word of God in his heart that he may walk right before the Lord for the rest of his days.
Paul the Apostle encouraged the Colossians to remember what Christ taught. He told them to let His words enrich their lives and make them wise. He encouraged them to teach them to each other and sing them out in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing to the Lord with thankful hearts.
This word can be applied to us today. We need to remember what Christ taught us, allow his words enrich our lives and tap the wisdom that if found in it. We need to teach it to our children and put it into songs that we may be able to remember them all the time.
This morning, I want to encourage you to sing psalms, hymns and other spiritual songs that you may improve your prayer life. Songs can help us enter into the presence of the Lord especially after a long day. If you are experiencing difficulties in your prayer life, spiritual songs can help you reach somewhere in the Spirit where you will experience the real touch of God.
This year try to do your level best to improve your prayer life. If you will be able to pray according to the will of the Father, then you will experience the unique touch of God. Learn to pray for yourself and stop depending on people to pray for you. If you want to see changes in your life, then you need to ask God for those changes. You need to learn to be independent and seek the face of God that He may reveal Himself to you according to His plan in your life.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Father, help me to improve my prayer life this year. I want to see you through my prayers and experience your presence. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
