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:
How much longer, Lord, will you forget about me? Will it be forever? How long will you hide? How long must I be confused and miserable all day? How long will ______________________ keep beating me down?
Please listen, Lord God, and answer my prayers by ___________________________. Make my eyes sparkle again. I want to live life again.
I trust your love, and I will celebrate because you will rescue me from ___________________.
I will sing to you, O Lord, because you have been good to me by ______________________.
