Prayer of the Week                            

James 4:14 says, “The reality is you have no idea where your life will take you tomorrow. You are like a mist that appears one moment and then vanishes another.”

 

Life is short! Our moments are not guaranteed. Is there an area of your life you need to be more present and intentional in?  

 

Remember, 2 Corinthians 10:5 reminds us to, “take every thought captive.” With that in mind, what is a practical way you can reign your thoughts back in when they're out playing in busy traffic? How might you engage more actively, leading your thoughts with God instead of your thoughts leading you chaotically?

 

PRAYER: As I sit here settled in before You, I'm so aware of how easy it is to make light of our time together, however unintentionally. My mind wanders away to many things, making our time together fractured. Forgive me, Lord. Thank you for the fresh mercy and grace today and everyday. Holy Spirit, help me reign in my thoughts and make the most of our time together. May I be mindful to keep worries in the form of prayers away, and instead focus on simply being together with You. Thank you for Your glorious world. Today, help me to really see it, to be present in this day with You by my side. In Jesus' name, Amen.

What Is Prayer?

 

Prayer is a powerful thing. It can bring a sense of peace like nothing else can do.  That’s why Paul wrote these words of encouragement to the church in Philippi:

    "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with

     thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends

     all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

     (Philippians 4:6-7)

I’m not sure if you know this, but Paul wrote the letter to the Philippians while he was in prison.  The conditions in the jail cell were most definitely horrid.  It is even possible that Paul was placed in the stocks with his feet stuck in wooden holes making it impossible to move about.  It was also likely that he was beaten while in prison and fed a meager amount of food just once a day.  

 

Still, amid all this hardship, Paul wrote these words:  "Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!" (vs. 4) 

 

Who among you could possibly say such wonderful words of praise and prayer in these awful jail conditions?  Yet Paul found the peace that only comes thru the love of Christ and in trusting that God would care for him. 

Try lifting up a prayer. Nothing fancy, just try talking to the Lord like you would a friend. Thank and praise God for the joys in your life. Offer up the struggles you are experiencing. Ask God for guidance and peace. Try this every day for one week and notice the transformation that will come over you. Then stretch it into two weeks, then more. Prayer is a powerful thing!

Tell us about it by offering a prayer above. God hears ALL our prayers!
