DAILY PRAYER GUIDE FOR FOLLOWERS OF JESUS
Spend approximately 5 to 10 minutes in silence.
Focus on listening to the voice of the Holy Spirit leading you, affirming you, directing you.
Pray, Father, today I come into your presence to hear from you. Lead me in my prayer time, guide me according to your will. Accomplish your purposes in me and through me.
READ YOUR PSALM FOR TODAY
Jot notes and praises in your journal or notebook.
Spend time praising God for who God is, for the places you have seen God leading you and forming you. This is time to praise God for being who God is.
Asking the Holy Spirit to guide you and illuminate those areas of your life that do not reflect God’s character and purpose, confess faults, shortcomings, and sins to God, receiving and recognizing God’s forgiveness and grace in your life.
Spend time thanking God for each and every way God has been active in your life: for blessings, for protection, for influences in your life, for the people whom God has brought around you. Give praise for any and everything God brings to your mind.
READ YOUR OLD TESTAMENT AND NEW TESTAMENT READINGS
In your journal or notebook, jot down thoughts, prompts that God gives you during this time.
Pray for others: for physical needs, spiritual needs, for guidance, for direction, for God to have the freedom to move in the lives of others.
Pray for the work of Christ Center Church: for spiritual victories, for protection and guidance for our leaders, for the favor of God to rest on our church.
Pray for the leaders of our government and our nation.
Pray for your own needs: Place your desires and prayer under the leadership and the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Ask boldly. Be open to God’s leading in your spirit.
Pray for God to lead you in specific areas of your life
PRAY THE LORD’S PRAYER
- Keep a pen and paper handy. As stray thoughts enter your mind, jot them down. This will release you to leave those things and focus on God, and God’s leading and the still small voice of the Holy Spirit.
- Find a regular, comfortable place to spend time with God. Soon, just visiting your prayer place will trigger that awareness of the presence of God
- Keep a prayer journal. Regularly write down your requests. A couple of times each month, review those requests. Note answers and victories to your requests. Highlight those answers. Seeing God work through your prayers builds and strengthens your faith.
- Always keep in mind, prayer is an ordinary means to grace. Don’t turn prayer into work or works. To do so is self-defeating. Relish your time with God, allow him to work in you.
