I’m a teacher at heart. That part of me always wants to express itself. When it comes to prayer, I’m most comfortable writing about things like why you should pray, how to pray, when you should pray and of course, what to pray.
And on it goes from there.
I’ve wrestled with three possibilities for this month’s prayer devotional:
- Unheard Prayer – Psalm 66:18
- Praise, Prayer and Pain – Psalm 66:13-17; Acts 16:25
- Answered Prayer – 2 Corinthians 1:10-11
Yet, I don’t sense the personal freedom to pursue any of these with you here. I encourage you on your own to read and pray these verses to see what the Spirit of God might teach you.
Instead of teaching you about prayer, I feel compelled to urge you to just pray!
“Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.” (Mark 14:38)
“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given to me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel.” (Ephesians 6:18-19)
