Day 8 of 52 Prayer Journey
On the second Monday of our 52-day journey what has God shown you so far? Maybe you would admit that you have not been as consistent in your prayer time as you intended to be. DO NOT BEAT YOURSELF UP! Did you miss a quiet time this morning? Block out some time right now and spend time with Jesus. If right now is just NOT possible, put it on your schedule as an appointment and keep the appointment.
Here is the deal, you need to spend time with Jesus if you are going to grow, and the growth is most healthy when that time with Jesus is consistent day by day. You need to eat in order to be healthy physically and to eat the right things in a consistent way leads to being healthier physically. If you miss a meal, do you think, “I just can’t do this I’m just going to quit eating.” No, we eat when we have opportunity. You have an opportunity today to spend time with the Creator of the universe, to share your concerns with Him, and hear from Him through His Word.
Do not miss such an awesome opportunity!
Take note that Nehemiah had prayed for months and when it came time to make his request to the King, he had specific requests. He asked to be able to go to Judah and rebuild his hometown and he had a particular time period in mind. He also requested letters for safe passage, and for timber to rebuild the gates. The king granted all of these requests and even gave him more than he asked. If this pagan king responded in such a way, how much more can the King of Kings meet our specific needs when we ask?
- Give God praise in your prayer time today. He is worthy!
- Be encouraged in all that God is doing in your church family. One baptized yesterday, another confessing her faith in Jesus and preparing for baptism this past week. God is moving!
- Please pray for me, I am preaching a revival meeting at FBC Diboll, TX. We had a good day and had one give her life to Jesus last night. Please pray God would bless my time here and bless the people in these services.
