21 Days of Prayer Devotional
Day 2
Ellen Chalmers / Exodus 15


“Then Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a tambourine in her hand, and all the women went out after her with tambourines and dancing, and Miriam sang to them: ‘Sing to the Lord, for He has triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider he has thrown into the sea.'” (Exodus 15:20-21 ESV)

Thought of the day
Miriam praised God after God parted the Red Sea for the Israelites, but they still had many obstacles ahead of them. Nevertheless, Miriam, and the other women mentioned here, celebrated this victory with unbridled joy and gave thanks to the Lord. 
Questions to ponder
– What is the most recent victory the Lord has given you? Have you taken time to celebrate it and give praise unto the Lord?
– Are there any victories before this that the Lord has given you which you’ve failed to celebrate?
– What can you do today to celebrate these victories?



I have been serving in some way with Take the city since October 2013. I spent a lot of time on the prayer team in the beginning and encountered God’s heart for the city in a life changing way. When the teams came back and shared testimonies, it was always fun to see that our prayers coincided with some of their testimonies in special ways. More recently I have had the privilege of leading a team to a nursing home where I used to be an employee. I used to pray over the facility every day, and it was such a miracle to see an old friend who lives there give his life to Jesus on one of our outreaches a year later. God sure has a way of answering prayers. And Take the City is an answer to so many prayers that have gone up here.
