Pray! October 3, 2011

Encouragement for the day:

Monday, October 3, 2011


James 5:16 – Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.  The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.


Psalm 17:6 – I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.


Matthew 21:22 – If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.


Mark 11:24 – Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.


Philippians 4:6 – Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.


Prayer is a foundation to living as a disciple of Jesus.  Prayer edifies, encourages, develops intimacy, spiritually exercises (thoughts, heart, intentions), it changes things and blessings are promised.  John 14:14 says, “You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.”  The Lord is jealous for our prayers!  He earnestly awaits them! 


Do you believe that prayer changes things?



Do you have any prayer requests?





Ask around.  What are the prayer requests of others?





Sometimes we forget all of the blessings (fruit) of our prayers.  Think for a moment about the prayers that you have prayed that have been answered.  List a couple of them here.





Encouragement:  God can do more in one minute than we can do in a lifetime!  Don’t be afraid to talk to the Lord.  He delights in our prayers and says that when we pray, He listens.
