A Pray A Day – 9/23/2014

“A Disciplined Life Of Prayer”

PLEASE SHARE THIS PRAYER TODAY!

 If today‘s prayer is a blessing to you, please share it with others.

Today‘s Scripture(s) – Luke 18:1

“And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;”

 

I looked up the definition of prayer and this is what I found: Prayer – a spiritual communion with God. Also in this definition I found the components of prayer: supplication, thanksgiving, adoration and confession. Communion – a close relationship with someone or something. Our walk with the Lord is about relationship with Him. When you look at the life of Christ you will see several times in the scriptures our Lord Jesus separated himself and went off into a mountain to pray our Lord Jesus stayed in communion, in contact, connected with God the Father through prayer. The disciples of Jesus took note of His prayerful life, how do I know this? Look at Luke 11:1 “And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.” I don’t believe that it was so much about how John taught his disciples, but it was more about how they saw and witnessed the prayer life of our Lord Jesus. Many of us pray, but we get stuck on the first component of prayer and do not move on to the next. Supplication – to ask humbly and earnestly of. Not only do we get stuck on supplication but we throw in begging and once we have finished with our supplications and begging we get up from ‘prayer’ and say I prayed today and go on. We forget about thanksgiving to the Father. We forget about adoration to the Father and we forget about confession to the Father, because after all Jesus paid it all and we don’t have to do any of that, right? WRONG!!! What would happen if we spent more time giving God thanks and adoration? What would happen if we confessed our sins before the Lord asked for forgiveness, asked the Lord to live through us, asked the Holy Spirit to help us and we made our requests know to God and then moved right into giving the Father thanks and praise and adoring Him and exalting Him, what if we spent more time thanking Him for saving that unsaved loved one (speaking those things that are not as though they are)? What if we spent more time thanking Him for that new job (speaking those things that are not as though they are)? What if we spent more time thanking Him for healing us (speaking those things that are not as though they are)? What if we did this throughout our day and also in our alone time with the Lord, what would our lives be like? What would our lives be like if we seriously cultivate real relationship with our Father God? Relationship is a passionate attachment, just think about the ‘relationship’ you have with your husband or wife, or girlfriend or boyfriend. Just think about the ‘relationship’ you have with your child or children. Want this with the Lord? Develop a disciplined life of and love for prayer, in all its components.

Today‘s Prayer:

Father I thank you for this another day. Thank you Father for touching me and waking me up this morning and bless you Father God for keeping watch over me last night as I slept. Father I thank you for all your many blessings on my life, Father I thank you for providing all that I need and I thank you for caring for me and caring about me. Lord I thank you for being so good to me. Thank you for opening doors for me and thank you for keeping my feet on a right pathway, the pathway that leads to life eternal with you Lord Jesus, thank you Father God, thank you for everything you do for me. Sweet Holy Spirit I ask today that you would help me to develop a disciplined life of prayer, give to me a love for prayer like never before. Give to me and activate within me love and discipline for communion with my Father God, give me a passion to commune with the Lord, to stay before Him and seek His face continually. I ask these things of you Father. Father I thank you for it, I praise you for it, I give you glory and honor you for answering this prayer for me. It is my desire Father to draw closer and closer to you. It is my desire Father to know you more, to see you clearly and to hear your voice clearly. It is my desire Father to be close to you. Bless you Father God. Bless your great and holy name. You are so great and you are so good and I give you all the glory and I worship you Father, I worship you! I bless you Father for your great goodness to me, to my family, to all my love ones. Father I thank you! You are so wonderful! Order my steps today Father, lead and guide me in the way I should go, keep my heart right today Father. I love you Lord, I love you. In Jesus name I pray. Amen

 If You Have Not Made Jesus Lord Of Your Life Pray This Prayer:

Today Lord, right this very minute I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I need a Savior. Your word says that there is no other name under heaven by which a man or woman can be saved and that name is Jesus. Today I repent of every sin that I have ever committed, I repent of every sin that I have done and I ask you Jesus to come into my life and be my Lord and Savior. I believe that you Lord Jesus shed your precious blood and died for my sins, I am willing to turn from sin and live a life that is holy and pleasing in your sight. I now invite you Christ Jesus to come into my heart and live in me and be my personal Savior. I ask that you would fill me with your precious Holy Spirit, lead and guide me in this life Lord Jesus. Thank you for saving my soul. Amen.
