Comedy rules the tube this fall! In a dramatic reversal of recent patterns, 9 of the 10 top shows on network TV are comedies and sitcoms. It seems like Americans are clamoring for a good laugh these days.

The most likely reason is a desire to escape the difficulties of daily life and a craving for real joy as opposed to what seems to be an ever growing swell of negative news about our economy and country.

The Psalmist looked around one day and felt the very same way…he needed a good laugh. So he prayed, Lord “Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love that we may sing for joy and be glad all the days of our life.” (Ps. 90:14)

Just like the Psalmist, the truth is we all need a good laugh. So let the Psalmist prayer be our prayer today… Lord, “Satisfy us this morning…so we can be glad all the days of our lives!”
