Hallelujah!

When the believer has acknowledged God in the beauty of His holiness, the windows of heaven are opened. True worship bursts into the heart of man. Hallelujah is the primary word of worship in the Bible. Hallelujah leaps from the lips of the man or woman of prayer every time a new thought of the goodness, greatness, and majesty of God dawns upon his or her soul.

The need of this generation is for men and women who face life with their eyes fixed on the Savior. We need an army of worshipers. Our churches, communities, and countries will be transformed by men and women who have encountered the loving, eternal, holy Father. We need a generation of prayer warriors that will rearrange their priorities and see the face of God.

–Adapted from The Prayer Factor by Sammy Tippit

Loving, eternal, holy Father, I long to worship You in spirit and in truth. One day in Your courts is better than a lifetime in the most beautiful house on earth. Ignite Your Church, Lord, so that we are filled with passion for the sake of Your kingdom! Draw Your people into Your holy presence, and fill us with words of passionate praise. Transform us by the renewing of our minds so that every generation will saturate the earth with worshipful hallelujahs!

Prayer Points

Praise the one who came as the Prince of Peace (Isa. 9:6). Thank Jesus for giving peace to his beloved ones (Jn. 14:27). Confess those times when you’ve allowed Satan to fill your soul with unrest. Commit yourself to bearing the fruit of peace by the power of the Holy Spirit (Gal. 5:22). Ask God to guard your heart and mind today with his peace (Phil. 4:7).

Warfare, bloodshed, strife, and turmoil mar every corner of the globe these days. But the good news is that Christ came “to reconcile to himself all things . . . by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross” (Col. 1:20). Pray for all those who seek to bring Christ’s reconciliation to a restless world.
