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:
Sometimes we forget how much God has promised us. Today, we will focus on one of the many promises God has made to you and me. We also tend to forget that God never breaks his promises, he always follows through. You can keep God to his promises.
God promises: to shield you when you take refuge in him.
God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. Psalm 18:30 NLT
What do you need protection from?
God, I run to you for shelter because ____________________________.
Believe in God’s promise:
God, I am trusting you to protect me by _________________________ . Help me feel secure about ________________________ because I am with you.
Keep God to his promise and declare his words over your life:
You are my hiding place! You protect me from trouble, and you put songs in my heart because you have saved me. Psalm 32:7 CEV
