STATE OF MIND
Lord, we thank you for waking us up this morning. We ask that you give us the strength, the courage, and the power to say NO to anything that is not like you. We ask that you bless our schools, our ministry, and our community as a whole Lord God. Please let no hurt or harm come our way...in Jesus name,
I declare that today I will pray with Power
What am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will pray with my mind also; I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will sing with my mind also.
(1 Corinthians 14:15)
The Resources... The Word!
Bringing Out the Big Gun
Bible Reading: Ephesians 6:10-20
Pray at all times and on every occasion in the power of the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 6:18
MAYBE YOU BELIEVE that helping non-Christian friends get right with God starts with sharing the good news about Christ. Actually, it begins with prayer. When you share truth, you march into enemy territory. You can’t do that without prayer any more than ground troops can take control of enemy territory without air support.
Prayer is simply talking to God in everyday language about your thoughts, feelings, and concerns. And you can be totally confident that God hears you when you pray. In fact, God eagerly waits for you to come to him in prayer. You are his child, and he values every minute you spend with him.
Why is prayer so great? Some important answers:
God has his mind made up to do some astonishing things on your campus and in your community. When you pray, you get hold of God-and in sync with what he intends to accomplish.
REFLECT: Are you taking advantage of the powerful weapon of prayer? How could your experience of prayer be improved?
PRAY: Ask God to deepen your prayer life.
