Prayer and the Test of Sacrifice “Take now your Son, your only son Isaac, whom you love…and offer him…as a burnt offering” Genesis 22:2 What a bizarre instruction God gave to Abraham.

But now, O Lord, please take away the iniquity of your servant, for I have acted very foolishly’” 2 Samuel 24:10 The specific nature of David’s sin…

Day 12 – Prayer and Humility

Prayer and Humility “But Moses said to God, ‘Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the sons of Israel out of Egypt?’” Exodus 3:11 God is inclined to utilize ordinary people to do extraordinary things in His Kingdom. Before Moses ever earned a place among the heroes of faith, he…

Day 11 – A Prayer for Courage

A Prayer for Courage “Grant that Your Servants may speak Your Word boldly” Acts 4:29 If you had been arrested and jailed for testifying about your faith in Jesus would you ask God for the courage to be arrested again? The disciples did. They prayed for more holy boldness. Courage is not the absence of fear,…

Day 10 – Praying During a Time of Goodbye

Praying During a Time of Goodbye “And when he had said these things, he knelt down and prayed with them all” Acts 20:36 Goodbyes are rarely easy. And in the some circumstances, a goodbye can be heart wrenching. But as much as we may dread them, the reality is that goodbyes are inevitable. So the question is…
