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:

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

Start with:
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.
Today I pray for: _________________________________.

Where should you have been happy with what God is doing?
Lord, forgive me for: _________________________________. 

Where has God been with you and you have known his presence? 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, tell God where you want him to work.
God, I ask you to act in  _________________________________.

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