Prayer Aligns Our Heart

Father God, here we are as Your children. Brought up on Your knees. Chosen, cherished, and accepted. I ask You to teach us Your ways so that we do not get derailed, nor pulled into any compromise. Help us walk in Your truth with singleness of heart. Help us keep our focus on You and not our overwhelming circumstances. Nothing is impossible for You. Thank You for your unconditional love.

We bring God’s truths into our prayers ~ right from His word. When you are at a loss of how to pray for someone, take up any of Paul’s prayers. Colossians 1:9-11 is a great example. Use a few of the words, a phrase, or the whole verse.

Peter reminded his readers that we become partakers of Christ’s nature through His promises. 2 Peter 1:3 says, “As His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him…” We cannot be a partaker unless we spend time getting to know the Lord.

Remember what He said to those who didn’t have the word in them? John 5:39 says, “You search the Scriptures…but you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.” We commune with the Lord through His word.

John 15:1-8 was His discourse about the vine. Verse 7 says, “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.” As we pray His word, it becomes our heart’s change agent. Our desires are shaped through praying Scripture.
