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:
The person of Jesus Christ is altogether powerful to change our lives in every aspect. But, how often do we focus on the richness of who Jesus is for us?
As we center on an aspect of our Savior today, the prayer below will lead you to celebrate who you are in Jesus and help you become more Christ-like in your day-to-day living.
For Christ himself has brought peace to us. He united Jews and Gentiles into one people when, in his own body on the cross, he broke down the wall of hostility that separated us. Ephesians 2:14 NLT
Father, I thank you because of Jesus, we can know peace. We can have freedom from anxiety and distress in our own lives because of Jesus. We have peace with you. And we can experience harmony in our relationships and less hostility within our family life because Christ brings peace.
Father, I ask you to bring peace to my relationship with ______________. Forgive me for the barrier I have made by _________________.
Ask God to show you one wall you can dismantle today.
