Create A Prayer Habit

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:

What a God! His road stretches straight and smooth. Every God-direction is road-tested. Everyone who runs toward him makes it. Psalm 18:30 MSG

Start with:
My God, I praise you because you are a God who gives direction for our lives which is safe and trustworthy. I worship you because you make the bumpy road smooth and straight.

Think about the day ahead. Ask God to meet your needs. 
Heavenly Father, today I need you to make a smooth way for _________________________________

Pray for one person today who needs direction. 
Today I pray for: _________________________________

Where have you strayed off the road in your life? 
Lord, forgive me for: _________________________________

Where has God made a smooth path for you? 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 direction. 
God, I need direction in _________________________________

Finish with these words:
I pray to you, God, because you will help me.  Listen and answer my prayer! Psalm 17:6 CEV
