Reflection: There is no wrong time to pray. Nothing is off the agenda with God. How extraordinary is that! So, what might a culture of prayer look like? Here is my list, yours might be different.
A culture of prayer:
– Heals personal wounds. Prayer opens us up to the Holy Spirit who can heal our wounds.
– Builds a healthy inner life (Proverbs 4.23)
– Builds your Godly conviction. Can you articulate your convictions? Do they come from God?
– Grows your Godly confidence. Godly confidence is confidence in who God is and what God says. We don’t base that on who we are, it’s based on WHO GOD IS and what he’s given us through Jesus.
– Taps into Godly creativity. We are children of the Creator. Imagine the potential. Our Creator created, and we are made in his image. Let’s not sell our Creator short. We can do incredible things through him.
– Cultivates spiritual sensitivity. Paul urges us to always pray for all God’s people. The more we listen to God’s Spirit, the more our sensitivity meter will be finely tuned.
How do you think a culture of prayer, such as this, might change your life?
You could keep a prayer diary and record the changes!
Prayer: Lord God, show me how to pray and keep showing me. Our Father who art in Heaven… Amen.
