I pray everyone had a great 4th! It was a beautiful day to celebrate our Freedoms and Independence of this country!!
I wrote in my blog on Sunday about using these next 6 months of 2018 to fast and pray continually for our lives, and getting closer to God!!
1 Chronicles 16:11 says to, “Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His face continually .” (longing to be in His presence.) I don’t know about you but I want Him every second of every day of my life! I want to learn more about His Goodness and Grace! He has so much more for me and for You! And I believe in the days ahead we will need Him even more than ever!
I read something really good this morning during my quiet time and I thought I would share it with you! I got an email from the King and Daughter Blog, and she shared quotes from influential people about Prayer!! I hope you enjoy because I sure did!!
● “I would rather teach one man to pray than ten men to preach.” – *Charles Spurgeon* ● “The man who mobilizes the Christian church to pray will make the greatest contribution to world evangelization in history.” – *Andrew Murray* ● “We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties.” – *Oswald Chambers*● “There is no other activity in life so important as that of prayer. Every other activity depends upon prayer for its best efficiency.” – *M.E. Andross*● “He who runs from God in the morning will scarcely find Him the rest of the day.” – *John Bunyan*● “Prayer is not learned in a classroom but in the closet.” – *E. M. Bounds*● “We must begin to believe that God, in the mystery of prayer, has entrusted us with a force that can move the Heavenly world, and can bring it’s power down to earth.” – *Andrew Murray*● “Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His’ voice in the depth of our hearts.” – *Mother Teresa*● “Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done.” – *C.S. Lewis*● “The more you pray, the less you’ll panic. The more you worship, the less you worry. You’ll feel more patient and less pressured.” – *Rick Warren* ● “I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer.” – *Martin Luther* ● “Prayer does not fit us for the greater work; prayer is the greater work.” – *Oswald Chambers*● “He who kneels the most, stands the best.” – *D.L. Moody* Feel free to encourage others to pray by sharing this fact: PRAYER IS THE MASTER KEY
You can never go wrong by taking time to pray about everything that concerns you in your life!! Be Diligent In Prayer!!
My Tip Of The Day: Keep a journal by your bed; when you think of something to pray about write it in your journal so you don’t forget it!! Even keep a log of your dreams,; you’ll know if they mean something to you!
