hi dear friends.
It's embarrassing in a way to share this because I love to pray... but my prayer life hasn't been what it should be. I have to be completely transparent with you, I've known this for quite some time. And though its not dead or nonexistent it has been in an unsafe place of complacency. That my friends is a dangerous place. It's like having a gallon of water in the wilderness, its only good till its gone and don't want that. God has spoken truth and light to my prayer life. In order to grow, I find myself going back to the basics.
I'm making it personal... again.
God's word that is.
There is nothing more intimate in prayer, maybe just for me, than praying God's Word. I used to do this a lot. I would open my bible and begin to pray scriptures. If the Word of God is as powerful as we believe, than why not make it personal? Let's not just read but believe it, pray it and live it? As I challenge myself to go back to this basic discipline in my own life, I challenge you as well. Make it personal.
My prayer is that our prayer life may be a fresh and sweet smelling aroma unto the Lord. May the Lord bless you as you bless Him.
I lie in the dust; revive me by your word.
