Prayer 2021 - June 25 - Praying in Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs

Scripture For Today:

John 17:9

“I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given to me, for they are yours.”


Praying in Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs pt 1

Music has always been used in worship. You can read back to Isaiah’s description of Lucifer and in that scripture, tell he was in charge of music. Music is precocious to God. Music also has a way of bringing peace to our souls.

Have you ever noticed how newborn babies will be calmed and even go to sleep as the mother sings to them? It’s part of nature. Our Godly nature. Amen.

Let’s look at Ephesians 5 verses 18-20.

“And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess, but be filled with the Spirit; speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody IN YOUR HEART TO THE LORD; giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father, in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Praying, singing, worshipping, praising and thanking God all go together. All of these elements should make up our individual prayer life.

Earlier in Ephesians 5:4, Paul said, “Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient, but rather, Giving of Thanks!”

If our prayer life and our fellowship with God through prayer is as it should be, we should always be full of thanksgiving. Amen!

I don’t know about you, but I pick up, almost immediately, whenever somebody – especially a brother or sister in the Lord – speaks negatively. It is an immediate giveaway to the true condition of their prayer life. They are not praying and fellowshipping with God as they should be.

For example, instead of saying something that will bless others, you will hear people murmur and complain about their circumstances. The ability to keep a right attitude, no matter what is going on our lives, comes from our fellowshipping with God and knowing that He is the One in charge and can work it all out. 

Ephesians 5:4, as we just read, says that believers are to stop speaking negative words that tend to drag us and others down and instead, “…rather speak words of giving of thanks.”

Bob Thibodeau

Pastor Robert Thibodeau has been in online ministry since starting his own podcast in mid-2009. Within about six months, he was offered a slot on nationwide Christian AM radio. His broadcast was heard in four major markets for one year.

He then started what today is called, "Evangelism Radio" and went live 24/7 beginning on October 4, 2010 and continues to this day. Now with over 50 broadcasters submitting programming on a weekly basis, Evangelism Radio has listeners in over 160 nations and all 50 states. It was also ranked by Shoutcast.com as #1 in the world in the Christian Talk genre on many occasions.

In late 2017, Pastor Bob began an interview style podcast called "The Kingdom Cross Roads Podcast." On this podcast, Pastor Bob interviews Christians from various walks of life on how they use their Faith to achieve success. Authors, recording artists, business CEO's, non-profit leaders and pastors and ministers frequent the show and provide amazing insight to build your faith. In only 3 years time, The KCR Podcast has published almost 900 episodes and Pastor Bob conducted over 700 interviews!

In early 2018, in response to the lack of any Christian themed podcast hosting platform in the market place, Pastor Bob coordinated with the iconic Mark Asquith and his team, with the result being "FaithCasters.net." A "Christian podcast hosting and marketing company created by Christians for Christians."

Due to the immense success Pastor Bob has achieved in the online ministry world, he is often asked by others "How to start a podcast." Not wanting to refer Christian brothers and sisters back into the world for help in establishing a Christian themed podcast, he started to develop the "Podcast-Training" platform offered through our ministry. He conducts training on a weekly basis to assist others in the development of their own personal podcast as well as ministry related podcasts that can air on Evangelism Radio.

Now, he has placed all of this information under one website location, "Podcasters for Christ." This makes it easier for other Christians to find the services they need in one spot rather than having to visit several different websites.
