Make a joyful noise to the Lord all the lands.

Even after their initial violent rejection from Antioch, Paul and Barnabas returned again until they had fulfilled the work that God had given them - to take the message of salvation to the Gentiles. In spite of their persecution, the disciples were ‘filled with joy and the Holy Spirit.’

Revelation speaks to us of the glory of God and the power of God’s kingdom. In this Year of Grace we too can be transformed by our acceptance of his ‘guidance to springs of living water’, as were the apostles. Each night it is good to review our day, seeking the signs of grace we have been given by his loving presence and our graciousness towards others we have encountered. So we too become the source of grace to many who are in need of a lifting of their spirits. This prayer will help us take our place with grateful hearts in the joyful chorus of praise throughout the world and in heaven.
