Do you have times when what to pray evades? Of course you do. I do. Everyone does. There are many ways and methods of prayer. Spoken. Written. Thought. There are acronyms to keep us focused and cover all the things we ‘should’. (ACTS – Acclamation Contrition Thanksgiving Supplication PRAY – Praise Repent Access Yield) How about just going before the Throne and giving God all that’s on, or in, your mind/heart. Here are some ideas:
A prayer totally devoted to thanks for His provision. Do one for each letter of the alphabet. This could become quite long since He gives us EVERYTHING!
Prayers for someone who is causing you problems. Not just what is happening on the surface but the whole story. Dig in and lay it out. Like King David did in some of the Psalms. Don’t forget your part in it.
Pray for our country and its leaders, its people, its problems, its challenges…
Praise Him! Close the door and sing His praise. Not just one song but maybe a whole CD. Write a poem. Take a walk and focus on His creation. Draw. Paint. Sculpt.
Call a friend! (Matthew 18:19) Grab your prayer lists, find a quiet place, and lay it all before God. Agree before hand to stay totally focused on God.
Pray On prayer warriors. God wants to hear and respond.
Heavenly Father, hear our prayers, incline Your ears, and grant us Your peace. Help us as we strive to experience Your presence. Let our prayers and our words be a pleasant fragrance before Your Throne. Make it so in Jesus name.
Blessings to you and yours!
