Verse of the Day: Ephesians 6:18 CEV
Never stop praying, especially for others. Always pray by the power of the Spirit. Stay alert and keep praying for God’s people.
I cannot emphasize how important it is to pray for one another. In an age where everything is put on social media we may think we know what’s going on in each other’s lives but almost everyone we know keeps the things that hurt them most hidden from their friends and family. People may push us away or refuse to hear God’s message and we may not know exactly what their needs are but God does. We can pray for overall healing, protection, salvation and for God’s will to be done in the lives of our loved ones. If God puts someone in your thoughts make sure you pray for them, you never know what they may be going through.
Verse of the Day: Matthew 6:10
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
If you don’t know how to pray or what to pray for, start by praying for God’s will to be done in your life. Praying for God’s will to be done is an act of faith because we know and believe God’s will is perfect and we trust in the plans He has for us. Don’t be intimidated by long, loud or eloquent prayers. Prayer doesn’t have to be full of big, fancy words it just has to be from your heart. Have a sincere conversation with God and pray knowing and believing that He hears you.
Verse of the Day: Matthew 26:39
And going a little farther, He fell on His face and prayed, saying, my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me, nevertheless; not as I will, but as you will.
Jesus gave us the example of how to pray when going through something difficult. He prayed to God saying, if it’s possible let this difficult situation pass from me but let it be what you want, not what I want. God knows everything from the beginning to the end we just need to trust Him and pray for His will to be done in our lives.
