We have just started a very important sermon series entitled “Prayers of the Bible”. This is a strategic and timely series that challenges us to focus on our walk with God through prayer for the next few weeks. Let’s not miss this opportunity to take a step forward in our prayer life. God is inviting us to intimacy with him through a simple conversation with him called prayer. For some of you, you need to start praying regularly for the very first time. Others of you, need to draw closer to God by praying more consistently.
The Bible invites us to pray without ceasing (I Thessalonians 5:17), to walk with closely with Him in all of life. I would offer one simple practice that has changed my life. Start each day with a prayer. When you wake up, offer the day to God. Ask him to fill you and use you for his kingdom’s sake. Quickly give each task, appointment and relationship to him. Then keep your eyes open for what God is doing in you and through you that day. Remember, we will accomplish nothing of eternal significance unless God powerfully works through us (Psalm 127:1). Let’s pray, draw near to our good and loving God, and look for Him to do great things through us in the days ahead.
