“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” -Philippians 4:6-7 NLT
Father, thank you for the power of prayer and this intimate relationship you encourage us to have with you. Forgive me for not using it to its full potential; forgive me for not coming to you first in all that I do.
Oftentimes I worry about things when instead I should be praying for them. Over and over again you tell us that you will provide all that we need, all we need to do is ask and so I stand humbly before you asking for your strength in this area. Help me to pray day and night; when an anxious thought comes into my mind, help me to pray; when I’m feeling blessed and am having a great day, help me to pray; when I am sad or worn down, help me to pray and when I don’t feel like praying, HELP me to PRAY!
Thank you for this gift of prayer and I pray that I would not let it sit on the shelf but instead would use this precious gift from sun up to sun down. I pray in Jesus’ name – Amen.
(Meditation Monday: These scriptures and prayers are intended to give you encouragement for the day and/or week. Maybe you don’t know God very well or are not sure how to pray to Him, hopefully this will help guide you. I pray this speaks to someone out there. Thanks for stopping by and God Bless.)
