Sunday Prayer | The Practice of Prayer

Prayer is a foundational practice for us as believers, modeled for us repeatedly throughout the New Testament by Jesus, himself. Christ prayed before He did anything. Jesus prayed before being baptized and he prayed before embarking on his public ministry. He lived a lifestyle of prayer.

In our troubled and turbulent times, there is ample reason to pray. As a prayer warrior, you know the power of prayer. Perhaps as a prayer novice, you are unsure how to begin your conversation with God. Prayer yields its rewards through repeated practice. The more you pray, the more in tune you will become to distinguishing God’s voice from all the distracting noise. You can pray with confidence, knowing that our Lord hears you and delights in your prayers as He does in hearing from each of us, His beloved children.


Heavenly Father, hear my prayer. Thank You God for saving me. I am grateful for Your forgiveness through Your beloved Son, Jesus Christ. I look forward to Your Holy Spirit guiding and directing my daily life. May I organize my life so that You are at the heart and center of it. May I do Your will each day. May I shine the light of Your glory in all whom I encounter. May I be an instrument of peace and a beacon of kindness. Father God, may my life bring You glory, honor, and praise. In Jesus name, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

May you go in peace and experience God’s favor and blessing today.

  1. Thank you. I like how you said that the more we pray (really talk with God) the easier it will be to hear His voice.
    There is certainly a great deal of cross talk out there these days, and the volume has been turned up again and again.

  2. Indeed, David. It can be hard to hear what we’re supposed to hear, especially if we don’t know WHO we are listening for. Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts.
