Why not sing and mean it —after all the Lord sings over you!

The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love, he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing. ” (Zephaniah 3:17, NIV)

Prayer- Oh Lord you gave each of us a tongue and a voice. Give us gumption to do what we say (or sing!) Amen.
