IMPERFECT

PRAYERS

DAY TWO | 08.05

 

“…God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”

JAMES 4:6 (NIV)

When praying, it is not so much about what you say in your prayer but the attitude with which you say it. You can do and say everything “right” and still not see your prayers answered. However, the Lord weighs the heart—and there are three attitudes of the heart that God responds to in particular: desperation, repentance, and humility.

 

Discussion Questions

•   Have you ever needed to pray about something but just didn’t know how? How did you overcome this obstacle?

•   God knows our thoughts, but praying out loud is still important. How can verbalizing requests when praying help you?

•   God cares most about our prayer attitude. Think about a time when you came to Him with an attitude of desperation, repentance, or humility. How did God respond?

 

Prayer Focus

Ask God to cultivate a heart of humility in you. Ask God to search your heart and show you if there is any offensive way in you.  Repent and confess your need for Him.

Pray for our leaders of our Nation, State and City ( 1 Timothy 2:1-2)

 

Next Steps

During your prayer time, focus on developing a closer relationship with God and committing your day to Him.
