7 Ways To Pray For Your Heart - A Weekly Prayer Habit
Now that we have spent the past eight weeks
learning about 7 WAYS TO PRAY FOR YOUR HEART,
now that we have practiced those ways
and hopefully turned them into a weekly prayer discipline for our lives,
we must remember...
We are commanded to
"pray without ceasing"
(1 Thessalonians 5:17) –
and we are encouraged
"always to pray and not lose heart"
So, let's get started!
For me, the week begins with Sunday, the Lord’s day. If you like, I suggest that you start this new weekly prayer habit for your heart this coming Sunday.
For your convenience, here are all 7 prayer points once more...
- 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.
