Prayer – part 2
Prayer is what keeps us connected to God and in communication with Him.
What are some of the requests we need to include in our prayers?
1. Pray for perception.
2. Pray to live a life pleasing to the Lord.
It’s not enough to know God’s will for your life (perception), you have to be obedient and live it out. Living out God’s will for your life brings pleasure to God.
Colossians 1:9-12 (NIV)
“...We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of His will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of His holy people in the kingdom of light.”
The point is: The secret to living a life pleasing to God is simply by loving God completely and others equally.
Prayer: “Today, Lord, when I look into the eyes of others, let me see with Your eyes, starting with the first person I meet.”
