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 Bible commands us to “not be afraid,” “fear not” and other variations over 300 times. There is said to be one command for each day of the year.
The Bible also tells us: Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs, and don’t forget to thank him for his answers. Philippians 4:6 TLB
If you are fearful and worried — and feeling weak.
Energize the limp hands, strengthen the rubbery knees. Tell fearful souls, “Courage! Take heart! God is here, right here, on his way to put things right And redress all wrongs. He’s on his way! He’ll save you!” Isaiah 35:4 MSG
Where do you feel weak? Tell God your worries and needs:
Heavenly Father, I am worried about ______________________________. I am in need of __________________________.
Ask God to give you strength and to save you from your weaknesses:
Lord God, give me strength to ________________________. Save me from _________________________.
Thank God for one thing:
Lord, I thank you for __________________________________.
