Prayer: help me to activate my faith

Dear Lord,

Thank You, God, for reminding me that I have You and the Holy Spirit– the ones that I should be depending my life on.

Help me to activate my faith, help me to remember to rely on You, to pray, and to pray in tongue regularly throughout my day. Help me not to segregate prayer as only something that I do on a certain time!

I yearn to live a Spirit-led life!

Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.

Sandpaper to smooth off our rough edges

As Joyce Meyer points out, ‘God always puts us around someone who is like sandpaper to smooth off our rough edges… a testing that takes place before we get promoted. If you want to lead you must first serve in circumstances that may not be ideal and learn to behave wisely. This prepares us to be greatly used by God.’

Prayer: pray for our church

Lord, I pray for your church. Forgive us where we have fallen asleep and are giving off a bad odour. We know you are deeply moved by the situation, that you weep over the church, and that you will act out of love.

Lord, would you bring new life. May we see the church come alive all across the nations.
