Prayer – part 3
It is through our prayers that we stay connected to God.
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.
3. Pray to progress in your Christian walk.
In any relationship, the more you talk and listen to a person, the more you know them. The more you know them, the closer you feel to them. The same thing is true with your relationship with 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: Take the first step in knowing more about God, pray!
Prayer: “Sometimes I think I know what love is, until I see the depth of Your love, Lord. You’ve forgiven my sins and broken every barrier to fellowship with me. Help me to continue to understand the meaning of real love, and practice it in my life.”
