Prayer changes lives. My life is proof of that, literally.
This challenge will, hopefully, change the course of my grieving process. Which after 5 months I have found I need it to end. There’s a quote from a U2 song … it goes something like:
” There is no end to grief. There is no end to Love.”
These are so true.
So anyway I have gathered my tools for this 31 Day Prayer Challenge of mine …
I literally began my walk with the Lord 13 years ago … (Just an interesting and just realized side note – my husband and I married after 13 years together. This year we were married 13 years; and he died in our 13th year of marriage … and now my solitary walk with God began 13 years after my husband I first got saved. I’m sensing a theme.) We will have to wait and see what God is doing with all those 13s!
So the little prayer book is my husbands and when I opened it he had the page marked on “The Home” chapter. So I will begin there …
I thank you today that my home, my family, is established on your word; the utmost of sound and good foundation. Through godly wisdom my home is securely built. Jesus is the Lord of this house . Whatever our task Lord we roll all of works upon you, I commit and trust them wholly to you. I thank you that you cause my thoughts to become agreeable to your will and so my plans shall be established and succeed.
Lord, you alone are my sufficiency. You are my husband and my supply. The Lord of my life; spirit, soul and body. I surrender all to you. I entrust it all to your protection and care.
As for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Dear readers, I try to prayer scripture always. I do this because God is bound by His Word and always honors it. Therefore when we pray His word we can be certain that we are honestly praying His will for our lives and situations. His Word is the perfect prayers for our day to day lives. There is no situation that we encounter in our lives that is not covered in the Love and Wisdom of God’s Word.
During this challenge I hope to help you become active in God’s Word in prayer. For me, I’ve found it to be the only way for me to get out of my own way in my prayer life. =)
Meaning I cannot manipulate God’s Word. To pray it I must study it for it to manifest in my life. And like I said in the very beginning of this post … Prayer changes lives … it has markedly changed mine.
Thank for stopping by and reading! You are in my prayers. God bless.
