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:
Honor his holy name with Hallelujahs, you who seek God. Live a happy life! Keep your eyes open for God, watch for his works; be alert for signs of His presence. Psalm 105:3-4 MSG
Lord God, I bow down in honor of you, yet I raise my head and praise you as I look for your presence and your works in every moment of life.
Think about the day ahead. Ask God to meet your needs.
Heavenly Father, today I need to see signs of your presence in: _________________________________.
Pray for one person today who needs to see God working in his/her life.
