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:
God has many different names which express the characteristics of his being and the rich relationship he has with us. Today, we will focus on one of God’s names or characteristics.

God, I praise you not only because you are real and living, but you are the way to life that lasts forever and you promise me a full and fulfilling life. You are El Chayim, the Living God.
Think about the day ahead. Ask God to meet your need.
El Chayim, today I need you to give me energy and bring life in the area of _________________________________.
