Praying Boldly on Your Knees Every Day
I learned praying on my knees from my grandmother. When I stayed with her, I have vivid memories of her on her knees by her bed every single night in prayer. I know this was her nightly ritual, but she had no idea the impact she made on me as a young child watching her.
Sometimes our prayers are more recited than heartfelt. But, if you can get down on your knees and pour your heart out to God, you will see and feel the difference it will make in your life.
God loves for us to come to him with our prayers. Even though he knows our hearts and our circumstances, he wants us to talk to him.
Practice praying boldly and asking God to perform a miracle in your life. He knows your heart and he knows your needs, and we know he still performs miracles.
Jeremiah 29:11 tells us, “For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Some years ago, I found this saying by Joel Osteen, and I fastened it to my phone for safekeeping.
All of your days have already been written in God’s book. When you go
through a disappointment, don’t stop on that page. Stay the course. Keep
believing. You may be tired, discouraged, and frustrated, but don’t give up
on your future. Our God is faithful.
I was at a time and place in my life where I felt lost and just wandering through my days. It felt like I was missing something crucial, but I didn’t know what it was. These words gave me comfort to face each day.
God has a plan. We need to listen to his will. Ask him to guide you down the right path for you at this time in your life. Know he will lead you exactly where you need to go. Ask his blessing on every step you take. God already ordains each step.
When was the last time you were actually on your knees in prayer? Are you willing to try it?
Are you willing to wait and listen for the plan God has for your life?
The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. Lamentations 3:22-23
