7 Ways To Pray For Your Heart - A Weekly Prayer Habit



7 Ways To Pray For Your Heart - A Weekly Prayer Habit

Monday, April 16 2018

 

Our invitation for the next three weeks:

 

To take the 7 Ways To Pray For Your Heart, to learn them, to practice them, and to hopefully turn them into a habit, that is a weekly discipline of praying through them, one each day. Until we can see our hearts truly changing and being transformed more and more into the likeness of God’s own heart.

 

For me, the week begins with Sunday, the Lord’s day. And so, if you like, I suggest that once we've gone through all seven of the prayer points you start your weekly discipline on that day…

 

  • SUNDAY – DELIGHT:

Psalm 37:4 + Matthew 6:21 + Jeremiah 15:16

Whatever it takes, LORD, give me delight in You as the greatest treasure of my heart.

 

  • MONDAY – DESIRES:

Psalm 73:25-26 + Matthew 6:9-10

Whatever it takes, LORD, align the desires of my heart with Yours.

 

  • TUESDAY – DEPENDENCE:

John 15:5 + Proverbs 3:5-6

Whatever it takes, LORD, increase my awareness of my dependence on You in everything so that I will live continually by faith.

 

  • WEDNESDAY – DISCERNMENT:

1 Kings 3:9 + Hebrews 5:14

Whatever it takes, LORD, teach me to discern good from evil through the rigorous exercise of constant practice.

 

  • THURSDAY – DESPERATION:

Psalm 119:67 + Psalm 63:1

Whatever it takes, LORD, keep me desperate for You because I tend to wander when I stop feeling my need for You.

 

  • FRIDAY – DISCIPLINE:

Hebrews 12:6 + Hebrews 12:10-11

Whatever it takes, LORD, discipline me for my good that I may share Your holiness and bear the peaceful fruit of righteousness.

 

  • SATURDAY – DILIGENCE:

Ephesians 5:15-16 + Romans 12:9-12

Whatever it takes, LORD, increase my resolve to do Your will with all diligence.
