Devoted to prayer // 08-09-23

“Be persistent and devoted to prayer, being alert and focused in your prayer life with an attitude of thanksgiving.” Colossians‬ ‭4‬:‭2‬ ‭AMP

‬‬Thanksgiving is always a great place to start regardless of the situation/crisis/issue that we’re praying about. Thank God for His very presence and His very present help; that He always hears, that He always has a good plan! Thank Him for His perfect perspective, for the love that He has already shown us through Jesus; for His grace and mercy; for all the ways He has come through in the past; for His provision, for seeing me safe this far! Thanksgiving will refocus our minds from fixating on the problem to seeing the problem solver! No wonder Psalm 100 tells us to enter His gates with thanksgiving. It calms our anxious hearts and helps us then approach our prayers with less panic and more trust! What are you thankful for today despite anything else that is happening in your life right now? In the light of that pray about everything and tell God what you need. He is more than able, and that’s where peace is located!
Have a great weekend everyone 👆🏼🙏🏼😊
