I have a crazy question to start you out this morning. How will tomorrow look if God answered your prayers you prayed today? I don’t know about you but God has convicted me of my weak prayer life! How many times do we sit around the table and say the same prayer over and over again to check the box? Do we give God our wish list and tell Him good bye, and hope to do the same thing tomorrow? How many times do we go through the motions of prayer and expect nothing to happen or we pray with doubt dripping from it?
Ephesians 1:18-19 says, “I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of your calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His night!” If you are in Christ, there is a power accompanying your life that is greater than great! God has called us not only to know His Word, but He is calling us to pray it. The devil knows that if he can keep our prayer lives silent, he can keep God’s hand distant. God has convicted me this morning of going deeper in my prayer life. Yes Lord, I hear You this morning!
Praying Heaven down! Lord, make us the prayer warriors you desire. Help us to stand on your Word and not back down. Give us a heart of compassion for other people and jump start a power prayer life in our hearts. Thank you Lord. Amen.
