Expanding our Prayer Practice | 09
Written By Tim Spanburg
The disciplines are practices that the Spirit of God often uses to do His work of shaping us to be more like Jesus. In light of the sharpening article from Tuesday practice the discipline of prayer in this way today.
Think back to the article on prayer from Tuesday, Learning the Language of Prayer.
- Who have you lost in the past year? What relationship has been strained due to differences over the pandemic, politics, or race?
- Set a time for 10 minutes. (I know, crazy long!)
- Spend the next 10 minutes praying for that person. When you finish, write down anything that changed your vision of God, that person, or the disagreement you have experienced with them.
Week 9 of 10 Prayer
Take time today to pray through Philippians 4:11b-13. Make it your own. Pray God’s words back to Him. One of the best ways to meditate on God’s word is to pray through it. Let the concepts, ideas, and images marinate in your soul as you internalize the Word.
Each week we take time to learn more about the disciplines. Take the next 5 minutes to get an introduction to WHY we need to learn MORE about prayer from Andrew Jones.
Take time to reread Philippians 4:10-23 from Sunday. Review your notes. What is God bringing back to mind from His Word?
