Read Exodus 15:1-21. The Songs Of Moses and Miriam
A while back at the beginning of 2019 we did a study of Exodus and stopped in Ch.14 after God delivered Israel out of slavery in Egypt and parted the sea and lead them into the wilderness. When we are done with studying John on Sunday mornings we will pick back up here in Exodus 15. We are getting a head start with this online devotional.
What is Moses celebrating in this praise song to The Lord?
What can this song teach us about prayer?
 
End with prayer.
