The purpose of this devotional is to motivate you to return to prayer and challenge you to pray boldly and consistently for seven days. As you embark on this journey to reignite your prayer life, I pray that God would open your heart so that prayer becomes an essential part of your life. I truly believe that one week from now your life and the lives of those you love will be changed!
Day 1 Prayer
I feel like i'm in a war, where missiles are falling all around me. Other times I'm caught in an endless storm, with thoughts flying out of control. Confusion reigns, and defeat creeps in to steal my joy. I need your peace—the deep-down-in-your-heart kind that stays with me day and night and speaks confidently into the wind. Calm my anxious spirit, Lord; all the attacking "if-onlys" and "what-ifs" fill me with needless worry.
I know that trust is a big part of experiencing peace and that fear has no place in my life. Most of the things I worry about or dread don't even happen. So I'm declaring my trust in you. I'm releasing the reins of my life again and asking you to take control. I may need to pray this same prayer daily, but I'm tired of the frenzy of life that leaves my schedule and my thoughts without any margin. I need more of you, Lord, and less of me.
