Devotional: Prayer

How often do you pray? Just before bed? When you wake up in the morning? Before meals? Recently, the Lord has given me a deep appreciation for prayer. Why? Because prayer is a two-way street. Meaning I get to talk to God and God talks to me. There is nothing better than hearing from the King of kings Himself!

Today, let’s focus on prayer.

The Bible tells us in Colossians 4:2, “Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.”

Today, make an effort to pray more. To hit pause on your favorite TV Show. To log out of social media for a few hours. To turn off your cell phone for awhile. To be in pursuit of God in prayer with an attitude of thanksgiving. Time spent with God daily always makes for a better day…even if it’s storming.

Prayer for today: Lord, thank you for this day. Thank you for my salvation. Thank you for everything you continually provide for me. Help me continue steadfastly in prayer everyday. Help me develop an even deeper and more meaningful prayer life than I already have and replace any negativity in me with a heart of thanksgiving and gratitude. Amen!
