Prayer to Not Give Up

Father, help us not to give up on asking You for help, for healing, and for our dreams to come true.  Just because it feels like to us it's taking forever, remind us that You still promise to answer the cries of our hearts in Your perfect timing!  

For You say: "Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you." (Matthew 7:7)

Okay God, I will keep on keeping on keeping on!  Lord, You know that thing I've been crying out for, please Lord, grant it, and give me patience while I wait!  -In Jesus' name, Amen. 

What is it that you have been praying for?

Prayer for Obedience

Father, help us to live our lives in a way that honors You, every day, in everything we do and say. 

Oh Lord, I am challenged with something my pastor said on Sunday. "A coach never asks his team to give them their best 45%, he asks for 100% effort!"  

I believe God wants the same effort from us.  He doesn't want us to live Godly lives part of the time, or only accept part of the Gospel.  He asks for 100% effort!

Oh God, I am thankful that You call us to obedience, and at the same time expect imperfection.  Help us not to feel guilty for the times we have not given you our 100% effort.  Help us to instead to do better next time.  

In Jesus' name, Amen
