Praying is essential for our daily lives. But sometimes we may find ourselves at a loss for words. Let me reassure you that our prayers do not have to fit inside a box, or be fashioned after some great prayer warrior. God already knows our hearts, so why do we try to pray in a manner we THINK we should pray rather than just being ourselves?
The worlds were created by the Words from God’s mouth. When God speaks, things happen; things are created; situations change. All scripture is God breathed (2 Timothy 3:16). The conclusion, when I pray scriptures from the Bible I am speaking the Word of God over my life and over my situation. That’s powerful friends.
In my reading I’ve come across a prayer in scripture that I want to share with you. It’s one I’ve been praying in recent days. I’ve paraphrased and personalized this prayer from Colossians 1:9-11 from the amplified version. I invite you to pray this prayer, and let God speak into your life today.
I pray oh Lord that You fill me with the knowledge of Your will, spiritual discernment and wisdom. I pray that I live my life in a way that is pleasing to You, and that I will continue to grow in the knowledge of God: knowing You in a deeper way. I pray to be strengthened with all power, and to live out my life with joy.
