Prayer During the Holidays posted by John Sorensen on Nov 11, 2019
When life gets busy, what becomes your number one priority? While it could be a multitude of things, let me encourage you to make prayer your priority. November certainly seems to speed up time, between holiday gatherings and year-end deadlines. There are a million things on the to-do list and pressure coming from everyone, it seems. But, let’s stop to pray.
One of our key means to growth in the Christian faith is prayer. Prayer is a great privilege that we all too often forget about until we need something immediate. Prayer is not just for presenting requests, but to tell God how good He is and how thankful we are for who He is and what He does.
Take time, especially this month, to pray grateful prayers. God already knows what we need before we need it, and He will take care of you. But let your first point on your prayer agenda be thanking our wonderful God.
Look ahead to the holiday gatherings you will be a part of – who will you spend time with? If there is someone who the Lord has laid on your heart, pray fervently for them! Trust that God has been seeking them out, join Him by seeking them out in prayer, and then in conversation! If you will pray for opportunities to share the love of Christ, He will certainly give them to you.
This is our focus this week at Evangelism Explosion through our social media channels and our daily broadcast. We have resources to help you learn to pray effectively at ShareLife.Today.
May God richly bless you as you pray for the lost with a grateful heart, knowing you are part of God’s rescue team.
