“Ah God, help me!” I’m crying out to God again. I’m communing with God, but it’s not exactly a powerful prayer for my personal growth. God has so much for us, and the New Testament is packed with Biblical prayers for my personal growth.
I want to get this New Year off to a good start, (or even if you’re finding this later and need a reset.) I want to find those prayers and pray them and lay out a good foundation for my spiritual growth.
I pray for myself all the time. I could maybe even be called selfish in this way? I actually have to remember to pray for my family. I shoot prayers up to God all day long every day about everything, and then I pray in the Spirit as well, and then this one is absolutely my favourite prayer for when I’m struggling with a situation.
Whether you pray all day or are just looking for a place to begin, the Apostle Paul laid out at least 6 prayers in the New Testament that dig deep asking for so many spiritual revelations; and I want them. I don’t want to limit myself when God has so much for me, but sometimes we don’t know what to ask for. Can we be diligent and train ourselves in prayer? Pray a prayer a week for ourselves and one other? Imagine our life and their life changed by us praying straight Biblical prayers.
I invite you to join our 6 week prayer challenge, where each week a prayer straight from the Bible will be e-mailed to you. I’ve included printables where you can print it to put on your fridge, hang in a frame, and for a few of the prayers, there are even two to a page so you can send one to a friend. Sign up below to have the first prayer delivered immediately.
