Learn from Our Prayers

Re: Verse reading–Ephesians 3 (day five)

I have sensed the Lord pressing me to journal more in this particular season of my life.  It’s not a skill I am good at, or fond of doing.  But it is SO helpful to me to see how the Lord is working and has worked.   It can also be a subtle reminder that God is speaking and I need to listen and hear as much as possible.

This week I will begin to journal my prayers too.  Reading Paul’s prayers in Ephesians (3:14-21) has been so rich.   Paul’s insights, passion, and priorities are remarkable.  I was also challenged by John Stott’s words this week: “One of the best ways to discover a Christian’s chief anxieties and ambitions is to study the content of his prayer and the intensity with which he prays them.”
