Devotions

Day 28 – Praying for God’s Favor

Praying for God’s Favor “Let the light of your face shine upon us O Lord” Psalm 4:6 Remember carefree summer evenings when you chased fireflies (lightening bugs)? Researchers are now worried that fireflies are becoming extinct around the world and their warm fluorescent glow is fading. Makes us wonder about the light of faith. In a…

Day 27 – Prayer and Bad Attitudes

Prayer and Bad Attitudes “I want people everywhere to lift up holy hands in prayer, without anger or disputing” I Timothy 2:8 Have you ever tried to pray when you were angry with someone? Ever been in an argument with a friend or your spouse and followed it up with prayer? Awkward isn’t it? Indeed it…

Day 26 – Prayer and Holy Accountability

Prayer and Holy Accountability “Lord, do not let those who put their hope in You be disgraced because of me” Psalm 69:6 A sometime overlooked aspect of prayer involves our responsibility to live in a way that attracts others to the Lord. Notice the humility and honesty in this prayer request. It is a plea for God…

Day 25 – Praying When You’re Depressed

Praying When You’re Depressed “I alone am left, and they are looking for me to take my life” I Kings 19:14 We can be encouraged to learn that some of the greatest leaders of faith experienced seasons of depression. Elijah was arguably one of the boldest and most devoted prophets in the Old Testament. He knew what it…

Day 24 – Praying and the Necessity of Listening

Praying and the Necessity of Listening “Speak, for your servant is listening” I Samuel 3:10 We live in a busy and noisy culture that makes it difficult to practice the virtue of listening to God. I-pod, I-phone, radio and TV compete for our attention and blare messages 24-7. Listening, however, is as essential in our communication…

Day 23 – Prayer and Praise for God’s Creation

Prayer and Praise for God’s Creation “The heavens declare the glory of God and the sky proclaims his handiwork” Psalm 19:1 Haven’t you stood awestruck by a summer night sky dotted with stars? Or cotton candy clouds lumbering along on a spring day? Or a winter morning landscape shrouded in a blanket of fresh snow? Perhaps the…

Day 22 – Prayer and Surrender

Prayer and Surrender “Lord… Here am I. Send me” Isaiah 6:8 “Surrender” doesn’t come easily for most of us. It didn’t for Isaiah. He felt unqualified. He confessed the impurity in his life. He referenced “unclean lips” to describe more than a foul mouth. He was talking about his foul life and the corrupt culture around…

Day 21 – Prayer and Gratitude

Prayer and Gratitude “And he fell on his face thanking Jesus” Luke 17:16 Jesus marveled that only one of the ten individuals He healed returned to thank Him. Were the others too busy? Did they intend to thank Jesus later? You wonder if He would marvel at our discourtesy today. True gratitude always finds a…

Day 20 – Prayer has no “Age Limitation”

Prayer has no “Age Limitation” “Behold, Lord, I cannot speak, for I am a young man” Jeremiah 1:6 God knows your heart. He knows your fears and worries. And like Jeremiah you can be honest with God. Jeremiah didn’t think he could do the job that God wanted. He thought he was too young. But trusting God…

Day 19 – Praying about the people in YOUR church

Praying about the people in YOUR church “I give thanks to my God for every remembrance of you” Philippians 1:6 Is there someone in your life for whom you praise God whenever you think about their impact upon your spiritual development? Consider the unnamed Christ-followers in the city of Philippi. They left an indelible mark upon the…
