Day 17 / Do Not Delay (pages 99-102)
My ah-ha from today’s reading:
“Very rarely does our first prayer request hit the bull’s eye of God’s good, pleasing and perfect will. Most prayer requests have to be refined.”
God is working on me and my prayers.
I’m finding more and more the need to pray for MY heart to change instead of those around me.
Instead of changing my daughter’s meltdowns, change my reactions and words.
Instead of changing the relationship with my coworkers, change my approach and tone.
Instead of being so focused on a book to write, create a journey in our family for me to document and encourage others along the way.
Instead of taking away our struggles and difficult days, help us learn to look for the lessons and grace.
I’ve missed the mark more than once on my prayer requests. I want to learn the art of refinement. I want to learn what it means to listen to God and seek His will above my own desires and wishes.
This isn’t something that comes easy. It takes commitment and bold prayers that don’t give up.
Today, I’m praying for each one of you in this challenge. For God to show up, surprise you and refine your prayers along the way!
