We know the importance and value of prayer. As James 5:16 (NIRV) says: The prayer of a godly person is powerful. Things happen because of it.
Sometimes, though, we need a little help to find a routine and pray consistently — to make prayer a habit. I want to help you get intentional in your prayer life.
Each day I will provide you with an opportunity to practice prayer — to help you pray naturally. These will be simple, biblically-based prayer prompts with fill-in-the-blanks that you can personalize for yourself and your life.
Here is today’s prayer prompt:
God has many different names which express the characteristics of his being and the rich relationship he has with us. Today, we will focus on one of God’s names or characteristics.
Abraham named the place Yahweh-Yireh (which means “the Lord will provide”). To this day, people still use that name as a proverb: “On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided.” Genesis 22:14 NLT
God, I praise you because you provide for my needs. I praise you for your provision in all my circumstances. You are Yahweh-Yireh, the God who provides.
Think about the day ahead. Ask God to meet your needs.
My God, I ask you to provide for me by _________________________________.
Pray for one person who needs a job, more finances, a baby…
Today I pray for: _________________________________.
Thank God for the provision he has given you in the past week, no matter how small. Show your gratitude to God.
Heavenly Father, thank you for _________________________________.
As you go into your day, or if this is the end of your day, ask God to give you faith to trust him for his provision.
God, I know I am not trusting you with _________________________________. Increase my faith to believe you will provide ____________________.
Finish with these words:
I pray to you, God, because you will help me. Listen and answer my prayer! Psalm 17:6 CEV
