I want to be a mighty prayer warrior, really, I do, but sometimes my lists get so long that I begin to lose heart for praying through all of the requests. I begin to feel like I’m placing a large order at the drive-thur of a local fast food place. I don’t want my prayer time to be that way.
So after much thought about it this morning I am going to switch up my prayer requests to say a simple prayer for those on my many weekly lists.
God already knows the needs of each person on my lists and He does not need me to remind Him, so my prayers are going to center on the fruit of the Spirit being manifested in each person’s life daily.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23
Whatever we are going through on any given day, the fruit of the Spirit is something we all need more of daily. So know that you and yours are being bathed in prayer as follows:
Monday – LOVE – more of God’s love to be evident to you and through you
Tuesday – JOY – for the joy of the Lord to overflow in your life and onto those around you
Wednesday – PEACE – that God’s peace which passes all understanding will rule your life
Thursday – PATIENCE – sorry, but we all need more….
Friday – KINDNESS – that kind words will not be a random act in your life
Saturday – GOODNESS and FAITHFULNESS – that you will be quick to recognize God’s goodness and faithfulness in your life each day
Sunday – GENTLENESS and SELF-CONTROL – that self-control will allow you to be gentle with the people in your daily life
May you have a joy-full day as you march forth today and may you continually…
Be a blessing,
