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.
In this new creation life, your nationality makes no difference, or your ethnicity, education, or economic status—they matter nothing. For it is Christ that means everything as he lives in every one of us! Colossians 3:11 TPT
Father, I thank you that it is not the level of my education, my status in society, my wealth or where I was born that matters to you. Instead, it is knowing your Son, Jesus, that is important. I am so thankful that because of Jesus I do not have to be defined by _____________________.
Father, forgive me for putting emphasis on the differences I see between myself and other people. In particular when I see _______________________. Help me to see Jesus in ______________, just as I want him/her to see Christ in me.
Ask God to show you one way you can accept the differences in another person today.
